"The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire." ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin*~
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was a Jesuit priest and French philosopher who ran afoul of the establishment by putting his own twist on long-held beliefs -- namely, reinterpreting the Book of Genesis and downplayed original sin as the focus of church doctrine. He might be considered one of the forerunners of New Age philosophy. He was also a trained and gifted paleontologist who believed that the study of man's most ancient history could unlock the mysteries of our most spiritual cores.
