"According to a recent poll of religious beliefs...."


I don't believe in Gallup.
Or that there's a Mori.

The theory that all life began
following a great brain-storm
and product placement plan:
"The Big Water Cooler Moment"
- and we all evolved, winding
through an endless torrent
of market research findings
and feedback analysis tools,
should never be taught in schools.

For science has proven
that long before advertising,
there was life.
True, it didn't always
know what it wanted
or how to look good,
how to have ''allure'',
but it was there.
Prehysterical and pure.
