You have defined religion and assumed your readers agree, but how can any Buddhist, “accept that religion involves connecting with unconditioned, infinite spirit which is not limited and constrained in the way humans are.”

The buddha stated categorically that all things are conditioned, including his dharma, and yet you suggest that we can connect to the unconditioned.

“Nirvana,” he says, “is immediate, clearly visible (sanditthiko), inviting, uplifting, sensed by the wise” [A. III. 55]. How can something transcendent be “immediate” and “clearly visible?”
