As reasonable and modest as it sounds, "if it works for you, then fine" is actually a very absolutist and exclusionary statement. It suggests one sees the bigger picture - that elephant in the room - but no one else does.

By definition any world view is exclusionary - even a worldview that is supposedly inclusionary. Where there is a certain truth claimed (even if it's a claim there is no truth) it excludes non-truth (or claims of truth).

Perhaps that's not what you meant by that, and I mean no offence by my post, but I see such comments all the time, as if to suggest a more reasonable/moderate view on God, creation, morality, etc. Far from it.

If you meant "Hey, let's just not talk about such things" - yeah this forum probably isn't the best place for that.
