This guy had a lot of good things to say...

"We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related, the eternal ONE. And this deep power in which we exist and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one. We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole, of which these are shining parts, is the soul." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Now then... Christians, Muslims, Agnostics, Buddhists, Atheists, etc., please tell me what's so wrong about that?

I guess with all the "you're hating on me" sentiment around lately, no matter how unfounded it may be, I just wanted to shed a little more light on some of my views...

No matter how different we are, be it in belief/race/gender/etc., we are all a part of that one universal energy that none of us can truly explain without some sort of faith in our own explanation...

If Chuck Norris wanted Ralph Waldo Emerson's opinion, he would have beat it out of him.

That can't be true because there's nothing about gay marriage or school vouchers in there.

Universal energy?

Sounds like more mystical mumbo-jumbo with no basis in reality.

But it might make for a good backbone to an epic space trilogy.

And a lackluster pre-trilogy.

Emmerson was such a pussy. He did speak a thing now and then. My favorite was the one about, if the stars only came out once a year, all would be outside in they chairs on that night.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
