    I'm really unhappy with the current uses of the word build and it's metaphorical derivatives.

    America, as we call it, was where it is before humans evolved (and certainly before anyone wrote Genesis). No human(s) built it.

    Humans are not built, they are born.
    Cars are not built, they are assembled.
    Nations are not built, they are established.
    Corporations or businesses are not built, they are chartered.

    San Francisco however - was built on Rock 'n Roll
