Team Spencer second in command
I would still be delighted to hear your response.
Also, I thought of another question to bring forward. You seem to believe that you can adapt the philosophies of Christianity to fit reality in a very nice manner. Now I'm curious; are you a believer in an afterlife of some sort? Do you believe in heaven and hell? Do you believe in god (Or is god just a synonym for "love", or approaching others in a fair and objective manner, and not an actual being, merely an abstract concept?)? If you believe in any of these, what are your reasons for believing in them? How strong is your belief in them?

I believe in God as what unifies the universe. This is a presupposition of a similar kind as when a physicist presumes that physical reality is a unity governed by mathematics.
I believe Jesus and his spiritual legacy is God in our world because what the stories about Jesus portray, e.g., intense love, is worth believing in.
My belief is as strong for them as my belief is for anything else in my conception of reality.
Throughout this thread, I think my largest gripe has been the way you seem to have chosen to read the Bible, i.e., your hermeneutic. I just finished listening to this podcast, and I think it nicely presents various Biblical hermeneutics along with their respective pros and cons. You might get something out of it. (The first few minutes of the podcast are kind of goofy, but the rest is solid discussion.)
