Tim: "What I mean by in the Image of my Creator is..."

I understand that your personal, considered interpretation is not a fundamantalist/literalist one. Looking at it in Christian terms, I can imagine that if you strip away all the downside of human nature, what you might have left would be the wholesome, or "holy" part - the essence that is in the image of God. Is that, in your mind, the same as what you said?

Then, of course, there are the theological views regarding the downside - but that's another matter.
