	I find myself in strong and vehement agrement with Branden on
 this point.


 "I think the sky is blue because it's a shift from black through
 purple to blue, and it has to do with where the light is.  You know,
 the farther we get into darkness, and there's a shifting of color of
 light into the blueness, and I think as you go farther and farther
 away from the reflected light we have from the sun or the light
 that's bouncing off this earth, uh, the darker it gets ... I think if
 you look at the color scale, you start at black, move it through
 purple, move it on out, it's the shifting of color.  We mentioned
 before about the stars singing, and that's one of the effects of the
 shifting of colors." Pat Robertson, The 700 Club
