I agree with what you say, especially that the "spirit of God, (i.e.; Gen 1:2), is actually the intricate web of the Natural Laws by which God accomplishes all his works.

Then why bother calling it "god"?

Just call it what it is : Nature.

And if you feel awe or admiration that you feel it necessary to venerate or offer appreciation to nature, then go ahead.

But why put all this extra baggage on nature that it doesn't require in order to keep doing what it is doing?

Just worship nature and shut the fuck up about trying to force particular religious claims into the framework of natural obsevances.

"Our" God?

I'm pretty sure you are on your own there.

Everything else you posted was just lazy tatological rhetoric, vague and empty and not even rational.

Truth is not a force of nature. Nor is it necessary for man to "know truth" in order to not go extinct. There is no evolutionary law that requires having a mental abstract corrospond 100% to what is really going on in order to survive.

That is also infinitely impossible, anyway. And what you suggest means that no species should be in existence today.

Clearly you are wrong in your assumption.

Your version of "truth" is "shit I make up when the facts don't support my claims."

So, tell me, why aren't you adapting to your environment if you know you will go extinct sooner or later?

Re: Directed Evolution -- not testable philosophic hypothesis
Yeah, you aren't talking about the collective unconscious here.

Obviously the two words together invoke a certain image for you in which you have created your own meaning.

Ironically this very fact disproves your version of what the collective unconscious is, because the answer is out there and you have no idea what it is.

What you are talking about has nothing to do with Jung or the true concept of a collective unconscious.
