That is a really interesting point of view. We don't see human beings as possessed with supernatural powers but then we don’t see creating world wide religious organizations as a very big deal! I guess that is just a matter of taste!
“Then the sentiment "Come, follow me" should be repugnant to you. :-) ”
Jesus commandments to Love one another and to “Do onto others as you would have them do unto you”.are good rules IMO. That people don’t follow them is what should be repugnant. Valuing human nature and the organizations we produce is a very difficult job. One step forward, a step back, I think being good is much harder than people think.
But I like you idea of people seeing themselves as god’s or god creators as interesting. Such god’s would defend their right to make up their own minds on issues and be more resistant to simply be ‘part of the herd!’
