There's a lot for me to like in what you said. I'm of the belief that rather than being bodies with souls, we're souls with bodies. William Blake wrote once about how "that call'd Body is a portion of Soul discern'd by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age."

I think my theology may be more traditionally Christian in some respects (I do think there's an afterlife of some sort, for example), but I also really enjoy the Daoist idea of balance that you mentioned. I'm definitely pro-science, and I also agree with the role of prophets and our responsibility to bring good.
