DailyOwl_thumb5_thumb_thumb_thumb_th[2]_thumb_thumb   The Daily Owl says, "All the prejudices I here undertake to expose depend on this one: that men commonly suppose that all natural things act, as men do, on account of an end; indeed, they maintain as certain that God himself directs all things to some certain end, for they say that God has made all things for man, and man that he might worship God." (Benedict Spinoza)
