> What is the utility served by theology in an extropian context?

As much as I hate to admit it, humans seem to have an instinctive tendency to worship something. That is not to say that all humans have this, but many do, and I must admit I myself feel the pull. I have decided all religion is false and therefore to to overpower my own worship instinct, as some homosexuals decide to overpower their natural instincts. Even now, I feel a vacuum in my life that extropianism does not fill (as intellectually fulfilling as it is). I do not intend to return to religion, ever, but we must recognize that we are (currently) humans and we still have human natures. dammit. }8-[
