Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)

. . . a couple o' hunnerd years ago:  Morality is completely relative to the perception thereof.  There is no morality in nature.  Nature doesn't make good frogs and bad frogs; nature just makes frogs.  The only thing that makes a deadly poisonous frog evil, an edible frog good and billions of others of no consequence at all is our perception of and relationship to them.  None of the frogs in the world think anything of us at all.  From a heron's perspective, frogs are wonderful.  From an insect's perspective, frogs are pure evil.  Of course, we have to anthropormorphize the heron and the insect to give them any reasoning power, but that's how we imagine they feel.
