re theism, Robert, and . . .

Yes, "ditinguishing" between this and that is going on in 
various ways. While there may be much "real enough" 
sense/relevance, from various perspectives, in what you 
wrote in that post, Robert, (and in your apparent stance 
re theistics?) I'm wondering if there's a substantially less 
dual perspective (as per atma-buddhi, say?) from which such 
"sense making" and our dualistic world might seem, 
in comparison, as if they were the twitterings of birds 
(from our mainstream perspective?). . . Not that . . . And 
(apparently enough?) one's theistic stance, as well as 
one's speculative stance, (and stances in general?), are 
based on various edits and "not that's," so, in a sense: 
what else is new . . .
