A 69-year-old man, Emile Ratelband, recently sued in a Dutch court to legally lower his age by 20 years.

He feels his age should match his physique, which he believes appears much younger than 69 years.

Is it possible that we think the same way in America?

Make no mistake, some things are real and some things are pretend. Knowing the difference is critically, crucially important.

If I told you that I was a 24-year-old superwoman, I would be telling you something that is not real even if you saw it on my Instagram profile.

I think we would agree this most assuredly would end in fatal harm.

The example I just used is easy to agree with because the physical laws of the universe - like the laws governing age, gravity, motion, or gender - are quite easy for us to discern; but what about the moral laws of the universe?

If you, perchance, have swallowed the delusion that these moral laws don’t exist; or that you can invent them or pretend them away at your will; or if you think that only the ones that you happen to believe in actually apply to you, then get your cape and let the “pretend” comic book life begin!
