Fire - god or devil?

#1 Postby animist » June 14th, 2017, 1:38 pm

i don't really know that much about fire, but the awful Kensington disaster makes me want to say something about it. The Zoroastrian religion was IIRC based on respect for this elemental part of life, the fiery Sun is the basis of all our lives, and the anthropologists tell us that cooking with fire makes us human rather than merely animal. I can't believe that I spent many years of reading, albeit only as a librarian or periodicals indexer, so much literature over the last few decades about how to avoid the dangers of this mixed blessing, yet still it kills as well as sustains us :shock:
