16. failure of imagination
Do you earnestly believe they would not? And if you still do not after all that has happened what else do you believe?

Do you think it's true that:

Every live thing is a survivor on a kind of extended emergency bivouac. But at the same time we are also created. In the Koran, Allah asks, "The heaven and the earth and all in between, thinkest thou I made them in jest?" It's a good question. What do we think of the created universe, spanning an unthinkable void with an unthinkable profusion of forms? ...If the giant water bug was not made in jest, was it then made in earnest? (Annie Dillard)

You know they would and I ask what you will do about it. You know they have reserved the right to destroy. You know I have the right to ask and you have the duty to answer.
