Corwin, I don't think Christianity has any greater claim that God is reaching to man rather than men reaching to God. Gods tend to need too much attention to not be reaching out to their followers. To be sure, we are both biased on this point. Being as deep into Christianity as you are, it is natural that you'd see it as more valid, or special, than other religions. And me being atheist, I see all religions as equally silly.

To your point about defining religion as man reaching for God, that does not make the opposite false. That's like saying that Christmas is about children asking Santa for presents, but is not about Santa giving children presents. Theyre both parts of the same thing.

GBG, thanks for linking to that Oatmeal strip. I got a good chuckle out of it.
