PURPOSE, DESIGN, MEANING that is hidden from the
self-professed scholarly. I found revealed the reason for
mounting evils in a progressive world.
Can the human, who has been designed, created

brutes. But with the spirit in man, man's creation
becomes all the more awesome to contemplate. It is this
