Brett, it is difficult to sit down with anyone and explain a
religious belief or a scientific belief for that matter in a short
time. There are LOTS of reasons that go into making up the
beliefs and you fault people because they can't present it to you
like a book report. CHARDIN


When someone says they have a belief and leave it at that, I do not fault
them. But when someone begins to explain the reasons for that belief, I can
compare the reasons with the belief and decide if they are valid. If I say
that I believe the world is problem: If I say I believe the world
is flat because I had cottage cheese for breakfast--problem!
I also believe in god (but not a devil or hell)...I believe in Jesus as *a*
messiah...and a durn good one, we are still following his example 2000 years
later. I just don't like some peoples' reasoning--the bible says, there was
a prophecy, the church says, my preacher says, I have faith: The statement
"There is a god: The Bible says" is like "The world is flat: I had cottage
cheese"--the reasoning is not good.

In Sodom's account of his level I took the words that he used and compared
them to the conclusions he drew. The words DID match the conclusion but
they didn't *disprove* my summation that a level 3 can exist without a
coherent sense of self...nor did they explain why one would not have an
original belief, nor why one would accept outside beliefs in lieu of their
own understanding. Though I'm not sure if my questioning his belief is what
prompted your post?!? I did conclude from his words that he preferred
science to religion and he has not said that I was incorrect.
