If someone chooses to take a conceptual model as a training aide for physically learning something and hype it into a supernatural force...then all the power to them.

in comparrison, if someone can grow up as moral, just, honest and socially compatable as someone else - and lets say the only difference between them is their spiritual belief of where that strength comes from in order to empower them to be a good/full person...then it's a safe bet the source of that strength is interchangeable.

I don't discount the usefulness of a conceptual model for learning aide - I question hype surrounding it in order to capture and ensnare minds.
