I cant disagree MORE strongly with this statement. I think the word
natural is nearly meaningless - everything that happens happens in
nature, according to the "laws of nature/physics"
Synthesizing something does not make it "un-natural"
If a beehive is natural, so is new york city.
A beaver damming a river for new living space, and food sources is
identicle to a person daming a river to increase the survivablity of
hir gene pool. If you are a hypothetical snail darter, the beavers dam
will kill you as quickly as the hoover dam.
Technological developmebt is part of the natural development of the
human species
