Quote:OK, enough of the T6 idea. Now I'm thinking of replacing my 12T2 with a Delos .. 12mm or 14mm. My 8mm Delos has a wonderful FOV. It seems closer to a Nagler than 72 degrees.12 or 14mm Delos?Rob

Its a keepsake phrase that bolsters the ideology of things like 'Destiny' and 'Prophecy'. Are 'mortal' human beings that special that nature would plot its course through being and evolution just to pacify humanity? Mass, order/disorder, cause and effect, probability. These are the things that govern events in reality. Our lives are what we make them; nothing more. PAR
