Propehcy

J. Donner
There will be a wide spread "religious" revival unlike anything yet seen in history over the next 5 to 10 years. Maybe sooner. It is beginning now in the shadows and I have no idea how long it will take before it goes main stream.

CoAlpha ideals and values are compatible with this revival but values and ideals without belief are a lot like empty credentials. Belief can't be faked and the path isn't easy but you can consider me as a sort of outside spiritual adviser for CoAlpha, if you need me.

I agree with you that a religious revival is likely as Western economies collapse which should be in the next 5 to 10 years.

Everyone has some kind of belief (mine being atheist), the question is whether CoAlpha needs uniform belief or not.  If we pick one belief, we will be excluding all others.  Right now I am thinking that the ideal is to try to find common ground between those beliefs that support CoAlpha ideals.  You can certainly help with that from a Christian perspective.

I think CoAlpha should discriminate based upon the Truth. What do you think?

I think truth is relative (see Protagoras or Pirsig), so I don't think CoAlpha should discriminate based upon the truth.  Don't you see value in cooperating with other men who share your values even if they don't share your beliefs?

Men who share your beliefs are of much, much, much better value - impossibly higher value like you wouldn't imagine - then men who don't. But eventually, everyone will cooperate. It's just a matter of how soon you'd like to get on board.
