Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"The advantage of encarnating your view of the world through a coherent religion, is that it provides you with the archimedean reference point, its god-founder, exterior to the system, and so help obtain a purer (since external) view of what your other beliefs and every day life codes are."

this is the origin of this thread, and it is about the personal view of the faithful, not about some objective reality.

the last part of your post is a completely useless ad-personam, for which you are awarded a 2.

It does not provide him with an external reference point. It just allows him to pretend that his internal axioms are more valid than the internal axioms of any other ideology.
