I think your own self-aggrandizing & wordy analysis has wrapped itself tightly around the neck of its own argument. It is the consciousness of the creator, extracted from their writings, e.g. bible etc, which you say are partial and misleading, (only when mis-applied to suit our own evil devices), THAT are "most" instrumental, even arguably necessary, to a healthy, self-reflection of ones' former actions - and hopefully towards redemption, not despair. (as in your dark & hopeless version) As for Uri's way of presenting Diskin, he's not downplaying anything - you're just terrible at identifying writing style and technique. Probably due to your contrarian nature. Maybe, you need a "Creator"?.
