Bringing nature and religion together
In the great religions, God is spiritual, not of this world, not of materialism, and this definition has created the opposition between nature and religion, even if there have been theological tricks to try to bring them together.
Early Nietzsche said that nature itself uses culture and the state to elevate humanity to higher levels. But it is the Spirit-Will-To-Godhood behind life itself that first activates nature, which is then shaped by evolution.
It was a tragic error, or at least incomplete religion, which tried to blockade nature and human desires in order to experience the blissful God Within, which is only a glimpse of real Godhood.
Nature and religion at last come together in the Twofold Path of the Evolutionary Christian Church, without intellectual tricks, where Godhood is reached through material and supermaterial evolution in the Outward Path, the God first seen in the Inward Path.
