Reader comment on item: Bad News from Slippery Rock
in response to reader comment: not so simple

Question to obilic: What is the true message of Jesus? Isn't it an honourable effort to bring to reality expressed in the Lord's prayer "...your will be done on earth as it is in the heavens" And what is this will other than that creator and creature live in harmony?

What about the necessity of people realizing that there are realities which shape lives and the genesis of these realities is to be found in the super-natural.

As long as the ethereal only covers the immanence of the universe, and deliberately excludes the transcendent - then I suggest that considerable progress has been made in creating a new man: men without chests as C.S. Lewis points out in "The Abolition of Man".
