Now if we can only enlighten society and its institutions, especially its religions, to the point of changing their pre- scientific thinking,doctrines and teachings making them aware that the universe is a very diverse place ,as are its inherent components and inhabitants.Which means that we cannot simply categorize and contain its creation in stereotypical boxes and behaviors just to satisfy and relieve society's existential angst.
