    Your earlier statements would seem to imply otherwise.

    I also didn't say that your beliefs were a one-for-one match, only that they bore a certain similarity to the setting on a conceptual basis.

    WH40K is basically dark science fiction fantasy, so it attempts to provide scientific explanations for traditional fantasy phenomena like "souls," "demons," and "magic" within that framework.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if they turned to "New Ageism" to get many of their ideas.

    I do not believe in anything supernatural. The conscious and subconscious, and their influence in this world, is not supernatural. It's late and I will not explain it further right now.

    I think a lot of people in the states would have a **** fit if God had both. So, for the hell of it, let's say God has both.

    You also put the word "dead" in quotation marks, and pretty strongly implied the existence of some form of "collective consciousness" shared by all of the human race.

    Both of those things would strike me as being rather "supernatural."

    In any case, I am more than willing to wait 'till morning for a more in depth explanation.

    My belief in animatism is not based in the supernatural but the influence of inanimate objects (a scientific fact). Not collective as in working together consciously, just that everyone's counts.

    I look forward to it, another time.

    If we're speaking of the Christian God, male it is.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    That is a whole new and interesting debate.... make sure all your valuable crystal is safe and secure.

    Christians will defend the concept to the death even though 1) they can not explain it and 2) its not specifically set forth in the Bible. Instead, the Trinity was a creation of the Council of Nicaea, some three hundred years after Christ to settle an on theological argument (about the relationship of the Messiah to God).
