Response to TygrBright (Original post)

4. despite a whole chapter

"we agnostics".. i was taught a couple of simple analogies... first of all, i have become a beleiver in the concpt of a group conscience.. that carries over from 12 step rooms, to political movments, and ultimatly to most of my life.. while blind obdience to any doctrine is dubious the concept of community, was the cement that binded my recovery

in the rooms of A.A. you often hear the concept addressed as Group Of Drunks.. maybe an over simplification, it often works for those who like me had an overdose of Judeo-Christinan education..
