"I do not practice religion in accordance with the sacred rites. I have made mysterious Nature my religion. I do not believe that a man is any nearer to God for being clad in priestly garments, nor that one place in a town is better adapted to meditation than another. When I gaze at a sunset sky and spend hours contemplating its marvelous ever-changing beauty, an extraordinary emotion overwhelms me. Nature in all its vastness is truthfully reflected in my sincere though feeble soul. Around me are the trees stretching up their branches to the skies, the perfumed flowers gladdening the meadow, the gentle grass-carpetted earth, . . . and my hands unconsciously assume an attitude of adoration. . . . To feel the supreme and moving beauty of the spectacle to which Nature invites her ephemeral guests! . . . that is what I call prayer."

I didn't see in there anywhere how Monsanto did not create chemical weapons nor how they were not in control of the worlds food supply. Are you disputing either of these points?  I also saw no mention of gmos at all in this meme.  Whether gmos are harmful or not is a good discussion to have and is open for debate, admittedly I am not qualified to have that discussion so I choose not to.  I only want them labeled and to retain the right for organic food to exist so I have a choice, a choice that is disappearing with the bees.

I assume you're referring to Agent Orange. a defoliant sprayed on jungle canopies in Vietnam? It was a herbicide. It was used in a war, so I guess that makes it a weapon. Fine. So...clearly GMOs are dangerous! Right? And since Henry Ford was an anti-Semite....automobiles cause hoof-in-mouth disease!

So really, do you have an actual point to dispute?

Monsanto sells seeds. They are a large supplier of seeds, but by no stretch of the imagination are they "in control of the world's food supply", so yes, I'm disputing that point. In fact, it's a ridiculous, easily-disproven point, a bit of hysterical hyperbole.

You have discussed the safety of GMO foods in the past, so I'll take it as progress if you're recognizing your own ignorance here. But organic foods exist and will continue to exist regardless of whether we go on a superstitious campaign to vilify GMO food or not, so you're good there. And if your meme isn't referring to GMOs what is it referring to? Or is it exempt from any outmoded notion of veracity or relevance due to being text in graphical form?

The link I posted was an attempt to encourage critical thinking about GMOs. I know it's a futile effort—you can't fight religion with logic—but I can't help myself. Forever the optimist.

Edit: and about those disappearing bees...turns out the end of the world has been postponed. Again.
