There's been a lot on cosmological nonsense posted lately, and I believe I can contribute even more. jimc1997 has spoken well that the real purpose of this board is to discuss fishing. In that regard, we hopefully can ignore the fact that many of Christ's disciples who bolted when the Empire ruled, were fishermen.
I believe that one can "discern" the rules Reverend. When you are on Rock Creek trying to decide whether to match the sand fly hatch or use the "Clark Fork Hooker"....listen closely and look around. Stop your thought. Are you in the present moment? What does your heart tell you? If you're thinking about Tera, you're not in the game.

Great, O Prophet Delta_Gee, set forth your discerned laws and I shall transcribe them on this set of stone tablets, subsequent to which I shall convert them to HTML and post them on yahwehspeaks.com where they can be viewed by your disciples for $0.002 per page hit.

Lub-dub, lub-dub, lub-dub, et seq.
Are you now an intuituionist, D_G???
Get out the ouija board and see where your "heart" leads your fingers.
