ooooooooooh I forgot about the Celestine Prophesy, totally annoying book.  I almost listed The Bridges of Madison County because THAT book also annoyed the shit out of me.

Well aren’t you all just so damn cynical. I agree with your critique of CP, However, (yes, I capitalized on purpose) I was delighted that soooo many people who don’t think about things outside the mass cultural biblical version of reality liked it. I do believe that the more people seeing multiple reallities the better the chance we have of constructing a more peaceful world…you just have to first realize that it is we who are constructing reality…and the one they are intent on creating at the moment really sucks. I keep constructing a different one, just not as loud as those we shall not name (but you know who)! Did you see the bit on Jesus Camps!? Yikes! Soldiers for God hurumph…
