     This sounds like a fast road to spiritual apathy and resentment
about Creator who does not care enough to help you out of the muck.

     This is insulting Nick, and uncalled for.

     Almost every serious religion I know, especially the Eastern
ones and even Christianity hold that the soul is on an upward
Journey back to full Divinity.

And no, what you think about its validity
>or lack thereof is so beside the point that it's not even worth a laugh.

    The God that is postulated in this theory is a monster.

     I sure hope not.
