A logical argument for pantheism

For Patrick, via Andrew Sullivan.

Can God Be Perfect if We Exist Apart from Him?
Given how big a fan of Spinoza Patrick is, this is probably old news to him, but I really enjoy the argument. Basically, it's arguing that "God is perfect" can only be true if everything in the universe, including you and I, are part of God, which is heretical in most of the world's monotheistic religions. At least, it's heretical in the non-mystical branches of those religions.
