Are you familiar with "God is not Great = how religions poisons everything" by Christopher Hitchens?  What I find kind of odd about the book is no mention about Taoism?  Is Taoism not mentioned because you can only find it in the library and never on television?  Can you remember Laoze or Lao-tse or even Confucius mentioned on TV?

Also, he makes no mention about Theosophy, no mention of Cosmic Consciousness by Richard Maurice Bucke, no mention of spiritually inspired poets like William Blake, all the things that might relate even indirectly to what ever "god" is, but these things are just gathering dust in the library, so aren't good for the television camera.

The link enclosed has something to do with Dr. Richard Maurice Bucke, he might be new to you.  Mysticism definitely isn't the same as organized religion, it is more introverted and hence escapes "big brother," the television camera....
