    Nitpicking is what theology is all about. If Mary performed a virgin birth and the woman who would give birth to the 'sign' that 'the lord himself will give you' (Christ) is but a young woman, then the sole thing that connects Jesus to the prophecy is the name of the 'sign' - Immanuel, which is not the same as Jeshua/Jesus. So there is no connection. Gee, Jesus may not be Christ! But, of course, Mary would not have been conceived as a virginal character had there not been the initial error in translation. So it is likely that she 'was' not a virgin. So immaculate conception and virgin birth go down the toilet.

    What is a god if not a sufficiently advanced alien? What's the material difference? A god pretty much is an alien.

    If the difference is that aliens aren't supernatural, then I must say that nothing is supernatural anyway. It's a meaningless relative concept.

    That is pretty much what I was thinking. I don't know that I could call anything god beyond a specific advanced alien that was benefactor of humanity, and even then it is just a name we call the alien.

    This is a bit random and no doubt already mentioned, but it seems to fit here.

    Theoretically, we should see something like this...
    Most NT's are atheists.
    Most NF's are spiritualists.
    Most SJ's are religious.
    Most SP's are indifferent.

    But of course I'm not saying this is actually so...

    It would be interesting to see a study on this.

    I don't know what you mean. You don't know me and you haven't met one of them, and I'm assuming you're not a Celtic Wiccan, so what's your point?

    INTP E9, agnost/opinionless/indifferent/apathetic. Whatever label you want to put on me, it doesn't matter. Anything works for me really.

    INFP with high Ne (>.>) 4w5.... and I have spiritual beliefs for sure.

    I would file my beliefs under "Distilled Christianity" after years of careful search and study. Works for me.
