Would it be going too far to suggest an irreligious faith in transcendent value? Because I agree with much of what you say. Aside from the necessity of belief in God as a benign sentient intelligence who is interested in each of us personally, of course..

I don't know, I think religion in its broadest sense could be defined as the pursuit of value. This is partly why I don't think Islam qualifies. Islam itself is the highest value as defined by Islam. Islam then becomes a substitute God - it is Islam that is revered and worshipped through obedience - a closed system.

When a person like you talks about Islam, we need to listen, Unfortunately, we cannot listen because the god of Moses did not choose a woman to deliver His Ten Commandments, and did not send His daughter to die on the cross for our sins.
Its easy to have a gender change operation. Its true you won't be one 100% man, but it will be close enough.
