The opening title reads: "A comedy with a smile--and perhaps a tear". As she leaves the charity hospital and passes a church wedding, Edna deposits her new baby with a pleading note in a limousine and goes off to commit suicide. The limo is stolen by thieves who dump the baby by a garbage can. Charlie the Tramp finds the baby and makes a home for him. Five years later Edna has become an opera star but does charity work for slum youngsters in hope of finding her boy. A doctor called by Edna discovers the note with the truth about the Kid and reports it to the authorities who come to take him away from Charlie. Before he arrives at the Orphan Asylum Charlie steals him back and takes him to a flophouse. The proprietor reads of a reward for the Kid and takes him to Edna. Charlie is later awakened by a kind policeman who reunites him with the Kid at Edna's mansion. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@>

It is human wisdom, but it’s not dangerous. Psychology (though perhaps or perhaps not this author’s observations in this article) is based on science and often contradicts the Bible. Unfortunately, the Bible has no understanding of science which makes it dangerous, because this is a scientific world that we live in. I grew up Christian, though I am no longer… and one of the things that convinced me that the Bible was written by men and not by God, was that there were no significant descriptions of science in action in the bible. There was no understanding of the orderly explainable world that we live in. “Let there be light?” It was never as simple as just, “let there be light.” I could write books on what it entails for there to be light. If there is a god and if he created this world, he loves science. Science is in every cell of your body and in every medicine you take and in the buildings you live in and the earthquakes you run from and the sun you bask in. The God who created this universe based it on scientific laws, on principles of physics that have nothing to do with your Bible. Your Bible is full of superstition and is en total a complete misunderstanding by Iron Age men of natural explainable scientific phenomenon. There is no greater proof that your Bible is corrupt than by just looking around and seeing the never ending examples of science that surround you. Whether God is real or not is another topic, but if he is real you are doing yourself a disservice and him a disservice by shunning the science that he is obviously so passionate about.
