This is far from the "God" of organized Western religions, to be sure, but it is equally far from Lawrence Krauss "universe from nothing."

Richard W. Kropf

It seems to me that when it comes to the Middle East, rather than the universal goal regarding human rights that the UN had in mind ever being achieved, the proposed two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while it might prove a temporary solution, in the end will only prolong the outworn and divisive situation.

Laurie Erdman

Whole books have been written making the case for having it all or not having it all. Many navigate the debate by saying you can have it all, but not at the same time. Honestly, that's a cop out. Change your relationship with time and you do get to have it all.
