"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.
