Mankind has a lot of rebuilding to do

When the Lord divided the firmament with continental, coastal waters, he did put them apart enough that they'd be difficult to get to. Full Story

What the *&%$ is this person saying! I don't think I am ignorant, but this LTE made no sense. I eagerly await an interpreter to explain this letter to me.

I'm thinking the LTE is talking about isolationism and protectionism the way God meant it to be.

Seems like the LTE may be a little overmedicated. Maybe drinking the bong water after he was done smokin' wasn't such a hot idea.

Yuk, it doesn't work, I tried it. >^,,^<

Actually, the first part is a bit whimsical but the concluding remark makes a lot of sense.

"We’ve had to build back up what we’ve torn down with ships, planes, guns and tanks. This is not a good commentary on mankind."

Just look at the bill for rebuilding Japan and Germany and the pending one for Iraq. It is most certainly not "a good commentary on mankind". makes you wonder if we aren't the dumbest animals on the earth. We remain the only animals to actually gain the power to cause our own extinction.

This one is illiterate.
Yes, we've built back up everything in every country where we have destroyed anything while defending ourselves. Those before us coming out of the middle ages had to rebuild and relearn.... even how to make cement. The Muslims had a great deal to do with the Dark Ages, having invaded and destroying the then very advanced culture of Egypt, the library at Constantinople, burying hundreds of years of scientific investigation, art, thought.
By the time all they and all the warlike tribes of the East had destroyed everything they could lay a sword on...we had to start over again.
If our enemies and detractors here in US succeed in destroying America we will return to the Dark Ages and mankind will have to start all over again to build civilization...if there is anything left at all and the radiation hasn't caused a mutation carrying us back to the ape like state. Well, it was discovered once what uses fire had. Have to do that again. And how to burn coal. That's when all the little PCs will come back out of their graves and haunt them for polluting and revive the EPA. oh, well, a dumb post deserves a dumb comment!
