  What was the significance of the "then" that replaced my "than"?  Presuming
  it has meaning, I am unable to understand what you mean fully.  I also
  wonder what kind of misguided notions "work" that make up the substance of
  your opinion. May I offer a counter-view that muscle-time is irrelevant and
  the only measure of the amount of work involved is the brain-time needed.

  It is religion that has elements of politics, not the other way around.

Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
