It is conceivable that cultures, environments, institutions and labs that support the value of the creative process may just be a fragile link to the future. Assuming that this could be the catalyst to discovery, it remains a challenge to take a risk and bet on a possibility.

Rev. Peter M. Wallace

In his 1979 book Disturbing the Universe, Freeman Dyson wrote, "As we look out into the universe and identify the many accidents of physics and astronomy that have worked together to our benefit, it almost seems as if the universe must in some sense have known we were coming."

Paul N. Anderson

God is the Ground and Source of our being, and at the end of each creative work, God said, "That's good." Striking against the ancient view that order is achieved through violence and domination, the God of the Hebrews creates and orders the cosmos simply and powerfully by his word.

In an era where "cultured despisers of religion" -- a term used by Friedrich Schleiermacher two centuries ago, critiquing the prevailing ethos of Europe during his day -- fail to note the power and feeling of authentic faith and practice, the mission of Pope Francis to America comes at a pivotal moment in world history.

Palin has long argued that the world's resources are a gift from God to be plundered. Climate change? Palin doesn't believe that humans could impact the climate. People of faith have a special responsibility here because we are charged by God to be stewards of creation and thus far we have failed to live out our responsibilities.

Accessing "Creative Eroticism" in your life is something you have complete control of. Sometimes it floods in with a new lover, or muse -- but most of the time we have to bring it to ourselves. Learning how to have bring it, channel it and access it is not rocket science.

With this discovery, we come ever closer to the idea that life is common in the universe. Perhaps you are not convinced. That is OK; let me speculate what would happen should we ever find evidence of life beyond earth even if you think such discovery unlikely.
