Today is Earth Day



"Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain's majesty above the asphalt
plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from
sea to oily sea."
George Carlin



Last night before bed, I read the editor's note to
the May, 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine.
Chris Johns introduced a page-94 story on fertilizers,
and how they affect our waters and planet. In his
foreword to the story, Johns wrote:

There is a stream on my property...I take my
responsibility as its caretaker seriously...the 
stream may be mine, but the water belongs to
everybody...A river or stream is a cycle of
energy from sun to planets to insects to fish.
It is a continuum broken only by humans.

In this manner, each one of us is able to save the
planet today by doing just one thing. Pick up a
piece of trash blowing across the road. Properly
discard of a careless cigarette smoker's butt.
Have bag in hand and collect the nitrogen-rich
fertilizer missed by a dog walker's negligently
cqareless scoop. Ignore the pollution and the
rain will perform the ageless task of recycling
poisons into the drinking water of our children.

Today is the day that you do not have to explain
to anybody why you are hugging a tree.

Today is the day that it is OK to enjoy the warmth
of the sun on your face, and rest a moment or hour
to watch the grass grow. You will gain more from
such experience than spending five hours like the
average American does by watching television.

Enjoy the earth today and re-explore your priorities.

As a naturalist observing the variety of life, 
every day was Earth Day to Charles Darwin. In
addition to his love for plants and insects,
reptiles, and mammals, Darwin was a Notmilkman.

Charles Darwin was one sick primate, and became healthy after
years of illness only by eliminating milk from his diet.

Although Charles Darwin refrained from using the phrase
"Survival of the Fittest" in the original edition of his
1859 work ("The Origin of Species by Means of Natural
Selection"), "survival of the fittest" was added in later
editions due to the evolution controversy. History shows
that Darwin was not so fit. Truth is, Darwin barely
survived his addiction to milk and milk-based products,
and the result of his love for dairy nearly ended his
life. Where would we be today without his theory of
evolution? I'd be a monkey's uncle if I was able to
figure that one out.

As you consider this Earth Day and the miracle of life...

Consider that every second of every minute of every day,
a star explodes creating a supernova with temperatures in
excess of 100 million degrees. These massive explosions
cause helium atoms to merge and create carbon, and later
on during the starburst, iron. Every single atom of iron
and carbon within each of our bodies had its origin in
the center of a star. I find that to be profound.

Although modern medicine prides itself on the progress
made over the past 150 years, when the subject of milk
comes to the diagnostic table, one sees evidence of
little or no intellectual evolutionary progress.

In this 21st century, one could visit two dozen typically
ill informed physicians with various symptoms, such as
bouts of vomiting, gut pain, headaches, severe tiredness,
skin problems, and depression. Darwin exhibited those
symptoms over a 40-year period, and was treated by 20
physicians, but it was not until discontinuing the
consumption of milk and dairy that Darwin's symptoms
disappeared, and his illnesses evolved into a cure.

A fascinating look at Charles Darwin's dairy illness and cure
was published in the April, 2005 edition of the Journal of
Postgraduate Medicine (2005 Apr;81(954):248-51).

Here is the abstract to that journal article, authored by
Campbell AK & Matthews SB:

After returning from the Beagle in 1836, Charles Darwin suffered
for over 40 years from long bouts of vomiting, gut pain, headaches,
severe tiredness, skin problems, and depression. Twenty doctors
failed to treat him. Many books and papers have explained Darwin's
mystery illness as organic or psychosomatic, including arsenic
poisoning, Chagas' disease, multiple allergy, hypochondria, or
bereavement syndrome. None stand up to full scrutiny. His medical
history shows he had an organic problem, exacerbated by depression.

Here we show that all Darwin's symptoms match systemic lactose
intolerance. Vomiting and gut problems showed up two to three hours
after a meal, the time it takes for lactose to reach the large
intestine. His family history shows a major inherited component,
as with genetically predisposed hypolactasia. Darwin only got better
when, by chance, he stopped taking milk and cream. Darwin's illness
highlights something else he missed - the importance of lactose in
mammalian and human evolution.

The love of milk made monkeys out of Charles Darwin and his
attending physicians, and 150 years later, modern medicine
is equally as clueless.

So long as the race of mankind continues (let me know
when you see the finish line), and so long as there are
men who interpret God and God's will, while debating
issues of science and religion, there will be controversy,
sometimes violent.

Nearly 400 years ago, as Pilgrims were colonizing America
and selling Massachusetts native Americans into slavery,
a blasphemous book called "Dialogue" was published and
condemned, for statements contrary to biblical teaching.

Its author suggested that the earth revolved around the
sun. He was ridiculed, jailed, tortured, and nearly put
to death for his contrarian beliefs. Two hundred and
twenty-five years after that book was published, another
controversy was created by a man who suggested that
humans had evolved from ape-like creatures. Eighty
years ago, a Tennessee school teacher attempted to
teach that theory of evolution to his students, and
was punished and put on trial, and in 2004, a Kansas
school board voted to introduce intelligent design
as a part of its curriculum, along with those same
blasphemous theories of evolution.

There is considerable burlesque in these noteworthy
comic dramas. Galileo's persecution and Darwin's
ridicule represent a world in which there has been
little if any intellectual evolution throughout
man's brief history.

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows
into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness
into you, and the storms their energy, while cares
will drop off like autumn leaves."
John Muir
