I myself have always questioned the notion used by greens that man is
somehow "unnatural." If we take evolution for granted, then has man not
always been a part of nature? Just because our evolution will continue by
using all sorts of technology shouldn't create a "man versus nature"
scenario, but instead a "man enhancing nature" one.
