Three Kinds of Things. . .

Are there three kinds of things in the world?

The first is that which God has created,
The second is that which man has created apart from God,
The third is that which God and man create together.

Examples:
God (G) -- bananas, mountains, and stars
Man alone (M) -- cubicles, twinkies, and atom bombs
Together (T) -- coffee, gardens, and children

Other examples?

Chris,

I have been silently chuckling over your Banana epiphany since you posted it. In the defense of Twinkies; are not the foundational ingredients still attributed to God (ie. sugar, flour, etc.)? It just seems as though everything we put our hands/minds to becomes a little more corrupt as we make more changes.

Although, I must strongly disagree in your taste of banana’s, ripe and sweet is the only way to go.

True -- sugar is natural. But I bet Twinkies have a lot of artificial ingredients. Also, it's the spirit in which it is made -- for the good of man and the glory of God. I don't think Twikies pass this test. Twinkies are a tribute to the self-indulgence and technological acheivement of man.
