I agree with 5mi11er, this site is a pseudo-monastery. In the Middle Ages, the monks were in monasteries copying and preserving books and knowledge, we maintain the tradition in the modern age..... copying ,preserving, and maintaining code. If you don't believe in the Judeo-Christian ethic, just play along like its a game. I was raised in the Catholic Church, but now I am more of a Bhuddist. So I would say attaining "Angel" level, would be like attaining Bhuddhood, and sitting on a lotus flower in the spiritual realm, radiating positive energy.

But whether you call it Angel, Bhuddahood, TopDog, or whatever; anyone who believes in one God( spirit, etc), should realize it is all the same thing, just filtered thru different civilizations.

If you don't believe in any of it (a pure atheist), you can call it a practical delusion to make life meaningful, the opiate of the people.
