I take it you tend toward the later two categories.

Since you insist of taking my words out of context for rhetoric's sake I
must correct your seeming lack of comprehension. I stated that before we
change the themes covered in Bill's book that we should "think
carefully". The thinking part may have been what through you. I didn't
say or even intimate that we should slavishly follow the "sacred text" but
that we should be careful. What is it with this "father" thing - get some
help and get over it!

It's comforting that you are ahead of Bill and "most people" in your
comprehension of permaculture. I do note your humility in the last sentence.

Your attempt at levity belies your arrogance!
