I've recently converted to Poetic Naturalism as defined by Sean Carroll in his book The Big Picture. If you want to know what my approach to the problems conscientious atheists must consider, you can read my review of his book here: http://www.rowlandcjohnston.com/
I am wondering how many readers in these forums have considered the importance of appropriating metaphors that accurately and usefully describe the human experience and at the same time express a deeper understanding of the universe.
We need persuasive approaches that educate without offending or upsetting many cherished, deeply held theist beliefs.
The urgency of this problem takes many forms; Carroll offers one particularly striking example: the NABT being forced to back down on its claim that the natural processes of our universe are "unsupervised." (1995)
