Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
I pretty much agree with you, robomatic. Very good post. We ARE the Messiah, in that we must save ourselves. The responsibility is entirely upon us to make of our lives the best that we can. That which will save us is the best that lies latent within us...not some miracle that is going to descend out of the sky and to it for us.

And as you say, people can make a false god out of ANYTHING. They do it all the time. Money, sex, riches, power, prestige, popularity, fame, patriotism, weapons, titles, military supremacy, political theory, technology, professional status...the list is endless.
