    About the attacks...

    genepond hit the nail on the head. I've always taken my religious faith seriously. But a half-century of practicing and studying religion leads me to make the same observation gene did - over and over, in many situations. In fact, much of the world's woes come from individuals believing they know what God (whichever God they may worship) is thinking. I suspect the suicide bombers' faith was probably even more profound than Rev. Falwell's or Pat Robertson's.

    Cleo's (easier to type than "mrputin") comment about ridding the earth of "this faceless dirt" is also one I can stand behind. However, it won't happen. Yes, I'm confident we can disrupt organized terrorism, but the faceless dirt is, in fact, "evil", and I don't believe it will ever go away. Man is inherently good, but he is also inherently evil. As even Pogo recognized, "we have met the enemy and he is us".

    While the battle between good and evil will always rage, I believe that good, in the long run, will always have the upper hand.
