"The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness."
( Albert Einstein - The Merging of Spirit and Science)
I must say, that is one of the most profoundest things I have ever read.

No, you are deciding what is relevant and throwing out the rest. That's rude.
When a person refers to a gay person as a "deviant", he's hardly in a position to claim that others are "rude".

Reality alert. The U.S. Supreme Court matters a great deal. Ask any interracial couple who wanted their marriages recognized in all 50 states in 1967.

They sure do, only small minds, for lack of a better term, exclude the possibility of unproven mysteries.

Life is decent. I have a pretty big project I'm working on so I don't get much time free these days except to surf the net. Health is sub-par, but meh.

Hmmm... 2 percent of the population or so, a general contradiction of biology, let alone the improvised mechanics of gratification and you don't think deviant applies?

Oh, well. The proof is in peoples willingness to try it. Go ahead and get some testimonials from the citizens of Maine and Maryland.

Oh, yes! That "several" was actually TWO states, right? Just about the two smallest in the country? I've already observed, the demographics tell the real story. I'm a bit surprised that Maryland voted for it. It's a large minority state and they don't tend to like anyone co-opting Affirmative Action for their lifestyle choices....and yes, everyone knows it's about Affirmative Action and special hate-crime legal protection.

I've already observed that demographics matter. Do you suppose that the whole country is going to fall like dominoes now that Colorado and Washington have legalized marijuana? Funny how that same rhetoric is just "an opinion backed by no evidence" when it's not part of your AGENDA. Opinion? Common Sense? People don't vote based on scientific evidence. Your vigilante judges do more to keep Republicans in charge than anything else in government.

You're boring me with your pep rally. Parse it some more! DOMINATE!! You MUST be the DOMINANT monkey or you won't be a WINNER!! Drive on!!

I want a replacement for the Democratic party. I'm counting on people like you to make the Dems downfall written in stone. You WILL USE it! You WILL obey your MASTER!

Yes I do. Most of people just brush such things off as imagination or coincidence....I think in reality they don't want to acknowledge that such things are real.

I don't know, but after it's all gone and there's nothing left, some scientists say you have the potential of a Universe.

food for thought.
