Musings #2

    In the film "Inherit the Wind," Clarence Darrow (played by Spencer Tracy) confronts William Jennings Bryan (William March) over the conflict between Darwin's Theory of Evolution versus the creation story in the Book Of Genesis.
   As a student of the Bible, Darrow asks Bryan if he ever thought about the conflict between science and religion in our attempt to explain our origins.
   No, Bryan replies. "I do not think about things I do not think about."
   Which begs today's question:
   "What aspects of your life to you choose not to think about?"   
   It's a fair question, given that we smugly call our
selves homo sapiens (thinking man).

  So, for example...
 What is the meaning and purpose of
your life?
