The real reason for hope
I don't think we should dwell on the "fallen" state of man, or how we are "flawed" relating to God, which I believe is based on mistaken metaphysics and a distorted view of religion and human nature.
The reason for hope is based in real human nature which remains kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting, and which always eventually brings the recovery of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates after the inevitable fall of empires.
To recover, conservatives in America need not turn toward radicalism but toward building upon the constitutional tradition of the separation of powers and states to allow the natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where real human nature can flourish.
Then the federalism and subsidiary of our wise Founders can protect the whole, without the Big State rule of corrupt elites who care little or nothing at all for the people. Real human differences can than actually flourish without trying to jam all groups together in one territory of unworkable and socially disruptive "multiculturalism."
The real passion and hope of religion should not be blocked by the rejection of material desires--- thought in essence to be evil---in the pursuit of non-material spiritualism, since it is material evolution which brings us to real supermaterial Godhood.
It is this positive and hopeful view of life and human nature which can be guided by scientific/religious research into how best to evolve toward real Godhood, while living within natural ethnostates affirmed by real human nature.
