    Normally I don't bother reading links unless they are given properly, as reference to an excerpt or an article written by the one offering the link, Soggy's speech appealed to my curiosity so I read it. I enjoyed it, but I don't think that he was employing doublespeak or talking out both sides of his mouth, as they say.

    He was giving two distinctly different perspectives on the same subject depending upon the degree of use, or abuse of whiskey. To me he wasn't being hypocritical for political reasons but rather pointing out the hypocrisy of either side of the issue should they not see the other side and so a more realistic and expansive perspective. Both sides of his presentation were accurate.

    That's if the source is called "ancient culture." It's not only what is referenced as God, but ancient, culture, human, existence, Egypt, emotion, desire, animal are also distinct derivations from that source.

    Easy to say when humans are said to have been created in God's image, and once more these God's they worshipped might have been real to help them get their amazing civilizations going!

    Yes, gods (lowercase g) are fiction, not expressing reality. They express non-material aspects of human concerns and, as such, they exist within the spiritual realm just as do any other idea or concept or feeling or aspiration.
