Hi Glenn,

I think everyone should read your post carefully and think about each and every point you make. Then we should take your advice and "attempt to restore wholeness to human society, which has been rent asunder by extremes of reason artificially divorced from belief and irrational religious fanaticism."

This forum provides us participants with a wonderful opportunity to participate in a "dialogue based on mutual respect. Both sides must approach this dialogue, not with the desire to establish dominion over the other, but with a spirit of learning, of mining deeper and richer veins of truth." We should take advantage of it in exactly the spirit you outline in your post.

!!!!"This will only be possible if all participants keep firmly in view the goal of human happiness. Does a particular position, approach or belief advance the human condition, or does it drive it back? Only on this basis can a dialogue between faith and reason produce true and lasting value for humankind."!!!!

I sincerely hope you have started something, Glenn.

Warm regards,

Paul
