"Wise men watch the universe with great delight,
The stupid ones search for "enemies" and "allies" in it.
There are waves just because of the sea.
Ask that to straws, the waves are for them."

"In Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry states: "May the FORCE be with you"...That does not mean that he is a "Mono-THEIST" but he could be a "DEIST" or a UNITARIAN or a "UNIVERSALIST"!
Jean-Luc Picard, fictitious captain of the starship ENTERPRISE says: We have to be careful that TREK-ism is not the NEW RELIGION of the FUTURE.
Make it so! (or "So be it" which translates to "AMEN" in theistic, religious/Christian (or Latin) terms!)"

"There are many things for which man will kill; a pair of sneakers, a pack of cigarettes, a stick of gum, but damn few things for which he will die. The promise of eternal bliss in some heaven is a snare that traps many a fool."
