Meanwhile, while I can discus what it would mean to me to be in a
universe instance with or without a god, that's orthogonal to what I
consider to be the real issues:
1. How do believers and non-believers coexist without killing one
2. How do you allow for freedom of belief without compromising the
rights of women?
* This is critical since, as my girlfriend, the product of a
Jesuit education, points out that women get the short end in all the
world's major religions.
3. How to provide mechanisms for exit from communities of belief (the
safe word is: ?)
4. What is the bargain between the desire for parents to raise their
children in a community of belief, and the need for a civilization to
raise fully-informed and tolerant next-generations?
