As one respectful and grateful to science, and yet a believer in continuing revelation, to me it's clear what a Chosen People we are, as hominid inhabitants of this "Global U" or "universe city" called Earth.  Likewise I see our Promised Land is a spherical body, with a relatively large moon, situated amongst other such spherical bodies, none so much an Eden nor genesis zone.

The theatrics of nation-states, on the other hand, seem increasingly phony to me, nothing serious enough on which to hang a religion.

A responsible view of Planet Earth is to see it all as one nation, any nation, and to "virtualize" the task of stewardship, meaning management and government.  Sure, it's all America, no need for empire building, just look!  We're all Americans.  So now what?  Or it's all Israel, with Jerusalem its central city.  And then?

Of course I find it easier to virtualize in this way given the literature I was raised on, in which the last of the great nations, the USA, ended in bankruptcy in the 1980s.  A Medal of Freedom winner declared its extinction. We've enjoyed a brand of corporately sponsored Reality TV ever since. We've had lots of good laughs.
