Where we find real Gods and Godhood
Someone wrote about the “lost science of the spirit which the greatest philosophers have sought to recapture since time immemorial. ”? Better to stop looking for what is not there. Theological materialism, which transforms the “spiritual” into the supermaterial, is where we find real Gods and Godhood, evolved to very much in the material world and not in a spiritual world that exists only in the symbolic minds and experiences of materialism-blocking ascetics. This is the "revolution" in religion, philosophy, and politics which nevertheless conservatively retains but transforms traditionalism.
In the Twofold Path of the projected Theoevolutionary Church the Inward Path is retained as being the very old ascetic glimpse or experience of what real Godhood may be like when reached in the Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood. The projected Mass of Joy, or the Mass of Evolution, for the Outward Path, can be used in conjunction with the traditional Mass of Sacrifice of the Inward Path, although perhaps not at the same event. The Inward Path to the Father Within celebrated in the Christian Mass, and the Sacrifice of Jesus, is seen as one of the first symbolic-experiences, in the West, of the real Godhood which is attained through material and supermaterial evolution in the Outward Path.
It is overdo time for materially-evolving life on the path to Godhood to be recognized not only by science but by religion---and not merely the lesser symbolic non-material spirit.
