45. Okay, I'll admit
I hadn't had my caffine fix this morning...

We are in agreement on a number of things, including the difference between faith and dogma. That seems to be the problem with people here. They keep hearing the word FUNDIE every time someone says the word spirituality.

I don't even try to reconcile my "western" mind to my belief system. I'm fairly internally consistent when it comes to my spirituality and morality meshing. Where I would get dissonance between my "magical" (following the terms of your argument) abilities and my rational, orderly science-oriented mind, I simply let the western side claim it's superiority as it will. I think folks who can't admit that they are, by nature, internally incosistent are the ones who try to disprove it most. Usually by claiming religious superiority (Fundie Southern Baptist) or moral or intellectual superiority (Many DU-er's in this thread). Either way, it suggests an inability to view things critically or holistically.

Thanks for your patience with my impatience and thanks for taking the time to expand your thesis a bit. It did help.
