John Young whom we now know is renamed Adam the Lonely joins his extended Family. After a few silent moments, Panther calls out and asks Adam a question. “What does immortal mean?” I answer, “living forever, incorruptible, I suppose.” Hamish calls out, “What’s that actually mean though.” “well, it means our bodies don’t decay or rot, we live forever like we do today in eternity.” “Then Adam, tell us why down on earth do earthlings bother about all the preaching associated with Gods and Deities? Creating fear over sin and all that other stuff like devils and hell, Purgatory, Limbo and the garbage about Angels and Heaven?” I give a big sigh and say, “Gee you guys the questions seem really dark this morning, what’s brought this on?” Panther stares directly into my eyes and says, “We just want to know the truth. You know down on earth animals were not able to talk with an earthling but up here we all speak to each other now that’s weird don’t you think?” I nod in agreement and say, “You know guys when humans first were established on the earth they had no language to communicate with each other and it was the various sounds made by animals that were taken on board with humans and they with a more balanced mind were able to take animal sounds and make words from them. So you see all animals gave to earthling the gift of the gab. It didn’t take long for earthlings to realise that cats and dogs could manipulate earthlings to be their nanny and that hasn’t changed since we came to “The Wilderness Park” we are still your nanny.” “Well then pipes up Panther, we can’t be that thick after all if it is animals who started off language to help earthlings exist.” I nod in agreement.
