    Atheists dont die upon claiming atheism, so either no God, or no one "needs" him.

    Nah. I always wanted to be a surgeon. I stuck with chemistry for awhile because I loved it and was good at it, and had a charismatic advisor that I respected. I finally hit the wall, Peter Principle at work, where my grasp of and interest in quantum chemistry just wasn't there and it became clear that that wasn't my path. I rose to my level of incompetence.

I cannot believe anything it teaches. Organized religion talks the talk, but it simply can NOT bring itself to walk the walk.
    No money in that. When religious leaders take a vow of poverty I'll be at least willing to listen to their ideas. Otherwise it's just another form of politician who "claims to be a servant" but takes a hefty fee for their service.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Those of you who really wanna go down the rabbit hole of reality, will enjoy this discussion. It supports the idea that you don't go from unconscious matter to consciousness for those want to explore such things with God defined as "the one infinite conscious agent" as a model to work from using mathematics and new models of reality. This may be where science and higher consciousness finally meet and one - using the scientific method - may quantify the other. Science may be finally up to the task of showing our perceptions are just tip of the iceberg:

    There are other animals that are self-aware.
