can't touch this

4Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge.

The only means we have of duplicating grass right now is through so-called art.

"Art is the signature of man." G. K. Chesterton. Animals build, use tools, and even communicate. The one thing we really don't see them doing is art, says GKC.

And so it is through art that man mirrors the Creator best?

I am not sure I agree with Chesterton 100%, but he does make me think.

Chesterton is definitely a make-me-thinker. Very, very quotable.
