    Usually people don’t always read the first chapter in those Books….they just try to skip ahead to the later parts…

    Well, if you think about it…. books are all around… the “book” of our chromosomes, the “book” of our family history (not just selected chapters, but the whole book from it’s beginning), there’s the book of just our personal history that has a beginning… same with the “book of creation”, the abundant globe of life that Clarence refers to, including us bickering humans… and though it’s not a science textbook, nor a scholastic book, even the Bible shows that we have a beginning common to all, and with each of these books, people these days tend to forget what these books teach us, and we end up doing what Clarence talks about, and his newborn child asks the question that we do well to ponder, not with a divisive mindset, but one of finding more common ground, which also helps us understand our own selves….

    I didn’t quite get Olivet’s comment when I read it in the paper paper, but seeing it here, I realized that “Where are you from originally?” is a question that bedevils many people of mixed race.

    Gokie5: Then everybody is bedeviled – assuming they don’t have delusions of being in some pure, master race category. I have no idea where I am from, and don’t particularly care. I know most of my gene pool blew over in the 18th century, but most of my American ancestors walked and/or paddled over some 8-10 millennia before.

    I wonder where Mr. Armstrong got her name, I’ve never seen it before this comic. I don’t know much about my family history or many members of my family. Sadly, people don’t get together like they used to.

    Well, in my family we don’t “reuse” names – new baby, new name. Not a Junior or third in sight.

    I believe the intent of the comment you refer to is ‘life begins at conception’ Ill look for the verse if you like it is in the book of Psalms

    @Gokie5

    I took her thought bubble to mean “This guy talks about this planet like he’s not from here.” But yours is an interesting take as well.

    Olivet may refer to the Mount of Olives, a significant place in the Holy Land. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_of_Olives
