I was so inspired by something quoted by Capt. Fogg at Swash Zone (in an excellent post) that I could not help providing an illustrated version of the quote. The remark is an analysis of the difference between Europe and Real America:
"So what we have here are two worlds. One, without God and controlled by thoughts of evolution, is a spectacularly dreary, unhappy place without love or meaning.
On the other hand, even a fictional God brings the world meaning, joy, liberty, and wonder."
