sophocleese Declaring War against terrorism (69* d) RE: Declaring War againt terrorism 19 Sep 01

I don't suscribe to much organized religion. However an eye for an eye hasn't done a lot for world peace in the last week has it? That Bush may have declared it an act of war carries little weight with me. Over a century ago a small council attempted to declare that pi would no longer be 3.14... but instead would be 4, this would make calculations easier. Calculations were easier but things would fall down and not work. The relationships within geometric figures are not susceptible to political decree. Language, while a far more fluid and human discipline, still has some logic to it. The sun is still the sun even if Kate agrees with Petrucchio that it be the moon.

If forgiveness is going too far in one direction, and I agree that it is difficult, declaring war and preparing for murder is going too far in the other direction.
