[QUOTE=EyesoftheWorld;897588]Now, I believe that one of the greatest, if not the greatest problem with antrhopomorphic religions is that the metaphors in their holy books are taken literally.[/QUOTE]

I couldn't agree with you more. :D

From World Pantheism

World Pantheism promotes love and care of Nature, reverence of the Cosmos, concern for human and animal rights, and positive affirmation of life.

The idea of God or gods has since primitive times always meant some higher supernatural  beings or being in control.  Pantheists do not subscribe to that.    Nothing is super to nature.  Nature is what it is, and does what it wants.  No one controls it.   Humans are part of nature.  We are what we are, and while other humans may control us, and nature itself certainly  controls us, our minds and our bodies, there is no higher supernatural or puppeteer that that is doing that.   It is what it is.

“Faith is deciding to allow yourself to believe something your intellect would otherwise cause you to reject.”
