To Call a Spade a Spade

It was Adam began it.

Look around you, said the Lord, at the trees, the flowers, the fruits in this garden. What will you name them? For without a name, you cannot know them.

Then the Lord said, look around you at the beasts of the air, and water and land. To you I give the right to name them.

And Adam did as he was bid and applied a nomenclature to the world around him.
