To my way of thinking, both religion and science are children of philosophy. To that end, I don't think perennialism carries any more metaphysical baggage than science does. While there is lots of evidence and theory to sift through, both acknowledge fundamental mystery. I think any ontological projection of what reality "is" is nothing more than metaphor. Preferrably, very useful metaphor, that maps to theory and experience as coherently as possible.
Yeah, some seem to been a mission to ruin all my favorite songs and books as being some kind of horrible subliminal really bad messages etc

No, I don't want links because it's a lazy person's way of proving their indoctrination. I want to see if you actually know what you believe in. If you don't then you are indoctrinated. If you're agnostic about it, that's one thing, but don't claim it's correct and by golly a "fact" when you can't give a reasonable argument for it.
Ok, so let's say the possibility of an intelligent creator. If 50 is no certainty either way toward existence or nonexistence, are you less than 50, meaning you have some level of certainty that there is no intelligent creator?
while we're at it, we'll even add things to make it more addictive....

Run-on sentence, Smiley. Try a semicolon.

Brilliant Question : the Mogget has struck at the heart of the matter with these simple-seeming questions, and thereby set a considerable task. The difficulty in providing a meaningful answer exists in the fact that English has no shades of definition for talking about awareness.
People with nothing better to do. Twitter must be slow.
"We can't know from science if it is imaginary or real". What other mechanism would you suggest?
