exposing the Amano cult

In response to Edward Venn's Amano - One hand clapping:

   Without disparaging Amano's talents as a planted aquarium enthusiast [and 
businessman], or the beauty of his tanks, you can keep his overly spiritual 
writing.  I can't stand to read it for a second.  
   You see a nice planted tank, and the caption is something like: "I smelled 
my mother's perfume in the forest at sunset as I descended the snowy 
mountain.  I captured all my emotions here with this dwarf hair grass, as you 
can plainly see --- [unless you're an insensitive moron, or at least not as 
gifted as me, and those who worship me]." 
   Rediculous!  I don't know how he gets away with it.  Just list the 
ingredients and lay out the methods.  Keep the mystical garbage out of it.
   Venn now wants in on the act, and writes:  "A japanese garden must ... 
contain all the elemental forces earth, air, water and fire ...."  Please 
tell me how to inject fire into my tank!  All I have is CO2 so far.  Will I 
still need a heater?  Will I now need a chiller?  Sheesh.
   I guess it sells, though.  Maybe I should write an astrology guide to 
aquariums, and clean up.  
   I expect the standard religious arguments in response.
