“we are in rebellion against the authoritarian father “

-Alan Watts

Alan Watts discussed the “the specific nature of authority”, that is the absolute truth of the way things are or happen .

“to be substantial is to be underlying “

as it relates to space (depicted as black). this is a “Yin and Yang school”( 陰陽家/阴阳家 ) and early Taoist concept that Alan chooses to apply to the imagery of Deities.

what ever floats your boat

I live in a “mix” of faith in my community. its pretty evenly agnostic (including apathetic agnostic ) and different Christian denominations.
Christians tend to believe in transcendence to the standards of God spoken of in “the sermon of the mount” . Their authentic standards are judged against God,the Bible New Testament teachings. this maybe in the afterlife or during life.

Agnostics , Deists and Atheist are not particularly organised, many like it that way, they follow the law and/or their own standards of authenticity and such.

Buddhists are of many flavors. Alan Watts has been popular reading in North America pertaining to Humanism , Humanistic Psychology and Buddhism ..

Humanist simply put high priority on humans.
Humanistic psychologist almost all wish for a Human race that suffers less.

Zen Buddhist believe that although absolute truth is UNknowable , the “Face of Gods” as no more than metaphors, they practice “being” with the true nature of “the way thing happen
