    Hey I'm a big fan of C.S. Lewis and agree with his views. I'm reading 'Mere Christianity' now and i just have this problem with the Law of Nature. Remember, i think he's a genius and hence i think he's right; so I'd love someone to blow this query out of the water.

    I think he states that this 'standard' is ingrained in all (or most) of us, that we cannot get rid of it. This standard we all have he says must have been given to us by some other mind or being which is God. The problem i have is this: Could we not find or create this standard ourselves by simply putting ourselves in others shoes and treating others how we would like to be treated?

    Cheers
    Jack

    After reading some of his books, I have come to love Lewis. He has been catapulted to the top of my favorite authors list. I can't wait to meet Lewis on the other side.

As the Ruin Falls

All this is flashy rhetoric about loving you.
I never had a selfless thought since I was born.
I am mercenary and self-seeking through and through:
I want God, you, all friends, merely to serve my turn.

Peace, re-assurance, pleasure, are the goals I seek,
I cannot crawl one inch outside my proper skin:
I talk of love --a scholar's parrot may talk Greek--
But, self-imprisoned, always end where I begin.
