  4. […] As for things being complicated, to that I say, certainly they are very complicated, but it’s only complicated because humans have made it that way. What’s worse, our fearful minds and faithless hearts have made it that way, and too much thinking and drinking has caused much of this world to go to hell in a hand basket.
