An Interview With James Van Praagh
Omega: How do you define the soul? James: Instead of using the word "God," some people prefer to use terms like "the Divine," "the Creator," or "the Source." I have started using an acronym I created call O.N.E. It stands for Omnipresent Nurturing Energy. This term serves two purposes: besides letting people know I believe that everything is one and the same, it establishes my belief that everything is energy. More

Mike Brown, the discoverer of Eris and the demoter of Pluto, was right the first time around: Pluto is a cultural planet. Regardless of what it may be scientifically, people care—and they love Pluto. The Internet memes are flying. "So you dumped me years ago. But now you're driving past my house real slow." People actually understand why that's funny. More
