My train of thought = metaphysical assumptions

What makes us special?

We are:

1) Capable of true love => endowed with free will

2) Capable of moral choices

3) Intrinsically part of a loving community

4) Intrinsically valuable in God's eyes

5) Creative => called to be co-creators

6) Capable of perfect union with God

7) Able to fathom deep structure of universe through science

8) Granted "dominion" => caring shepherd-king, not exploitive despot
