The Chain of Being and Order with the Elements
#1
According to Platonist teaching, the Universe is held in a chain of being from the foot of God's throne down to a rock.  There is order, preserved by God and divine ordinance.  Since the Fall, even the elements - earth, water, air, and fire - are at war with each other, and it is only through Divine Providence that order is upheld.

If God were to remove Himself, chaos would ensue.  Philosophers have often thought about what would happen if, say, water and fire were unleashed on each other so the Lion no long lay with the Lamb.

Thanks to the great philosophical think tank known as Aqua Teen Hunger Force, we now have an answer.

Water - Infected with Fire

I love when philosophy asserts itself in pop culture.
