I just read your essay at

Pretty good I must say. I have one question, though.

Many religious doctrines are vauge and open to interpretion.
For example, Jesus's statement "I and my Father are One."
could be interpreted as being equivlent to Zero's "Man is God."

Could vauge statements be seen as meme generators, and
therefore have a utility not found in precise statements?
