You seem to concede that no one knows what God wants. If this were true then religious people should stop claiming that one lifestyle or set of attitudes is acceptable to God, but others are bad, based merely on unscientific sources.

On the other hand, of what use is religion if it can't tell us the mind of God?

Good. I suspect that everyone, religious or otherwise, is affected to some extent by the views of the age in which they live, whether they be views that are superstitious, political, scientific, or whatever.

Why should any educated adult in the modern world believe there is a God or that He has a mind that we should worry about?
