A doctor's notes about Ancient Philosophy: The Eleatic School, Xenophanes - "To represent the gods as men is to alter their nature in order to make them similar to us. These errors are due to the imaginations of men. ... it seems that Xenophanes confused God with space and with the universe taken it its totality." Per the late Dr. Jonathan Dolhenty was the Founder and President of The Center for Applied Philosophy and the Radical Academy, and is Honorary Philosophy Editor at The Moral Liberal.
- If interested in the Pre-Socratic writings of this philosophical poet who lived in the ancient Greek world during the 6th and 5th centuries B.C., Xenophanes of Colophon: Fragments (Phoenix Presocractic Series) is an English translation of the surviving fragments of Xenophanes’ teachings.

What??!! Is it so wrong to desire gold without having to pan or dig for it; and to wish to remain forever young? :)
