Arguing with an Old Comrade

I've recently receive a long missive from an old friend and comrade back in England. In our youth, we were members of the same radical organization but we have since moved on, though not in the same direction. I became a Catholic whereas my old friend would probably describe himself as a follower of Nietzsche, an atheist and a Darwinian. The topic of his correspondence was the economy. It's too long to publish here so I'm restricting this to my response to him.

Creatures have turned on their Creator and Creation is weeping at the enormity of the blasphemy.
