This is a good move. People cannot be lied to about what it says if they can go and read it for themselves. Of course, those who don't want to understand it won't understand it, and many would still rather listen to the lies of their preachers than make a bit of effort.

Natural selection 101
1. You have ten mice. 5 Males, 5 Females
2. All the mice except 2 have normal tails. One male and one female have short tails.
3. You smash all the mice with long tails with a cast iron skillet.
4. The two short tailed mice do the big nasty and produce ten baby mice.
5. Smash all the baby mice with long tails
6. Repeat until you get nothing but short tailed mice.

Natural selection ala skillet.

A very good discription, sounds more like social darwinism to me because of the forced removing of one type of the mice.

this link will bring you to a lot of his work already published online. It's a pretty good site, hosts all different books with copyrights that are no longer standing.They even have the Devil's Dictionary.

picky, picky! What could be more natural them smushing mice with a skillet? . . .  Alright so it's a bit simplistic but we could say the island the mice were living on was occupied by a bunch of nearsighted cats that could only catch mice with long tails. So after awhile only short tailed mice survived.  Until a cat opthalmologist showed up. Does that make you happy Mr. Natural selection Tophat? :mrgreen:

The way most cats are, they'd probably hold out for fancier frames. Cats are so narcissistic.  I much prefer dogs.
