>>>Ron Moore wrote: I fully agree that geese are beautiful, both in their appearance and in their actions; but being beautiful doesn't in itself qualify something as art. Mount Ranier is beautiful; but it isn't art, except if one is willing to extend the concept so that all of God's creation is divine art. This is not a senseless way of speaking, of course, but it makes an utter hash of the notion of art as opposed to non-art; for on this view everything becomes art.<<<<<<

I wonder.... does Ron's statement reflect his culture?
