I don't assume that biological organisms can use wheels either. Don't 
forget, in my mind, I understand your view completely, and I adhered to it 
myself for most of my life, but now I see exactly why it is incomplete.  
What I question is what most people take for granted, not because I am 
ignorant, but because I am only interested in seeing what it actually is, 
not in being right or safe or popular.
