RE: The definition of God in a technological world
Hmm, we could take this into the political realm - "conservatives" seem an excellent match, I am talking the new conservative here since there was a time when being conservatice did not meaning being a predator, to the idea that "whats mine is mine and screw you", with a disdain for the weak and powerless or the "genetically" impure, which followed down it's path leads us to Hitler, the ultimate worshipper of the Gene God, while the other path, the lifting up of the meek, the emphasis on free will and free choice, "the liberals" lead us on a path to Christ. Perhaps mankind is divided into left and right at birth. I can only conclude that those who serve the genetic imperative, serve the Dark Side.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
