> Your response was refreshing. I'm trying to understand the similarities in our differences. Like you, I have chosen my own path and have created my own meanings, but in the light and shadow of a standard bearer (my religion and my God).

Yes, thats right. Everybody chooses their own path as one must decide for oneself what propositions to have faith in. Just because one has faith in religious propositions doesn't mean that one didn't choose that path for oneself. I forget that sometimes. I also tend to forget just how much some people get out of having faith in religious propositions. I do think that one doesn't need to have faith in religious propositions to live a good and satisfying life and to have faith: but I tend to forget just how much some people do get out of their religious faiths.
