Wrong. There a pieces of the puzzle to be found everywhere.
Also I am familiar with the author of this thread and the sort of angle she's coming from with this. She didn't just look it up and think "hey this is cool , maybe I should put it up in spirituality" . There's more to it than that.
I believe there is a great message there for everyone. Christianity isn't threatened (not that you were implying this) , rather I think diversity and reinvention of our language is important for a rolling stone gathers no moss. Also if you stagnate too much then you will lose a lot of young people who would be more interested in Christianity if you showed some interest in their ideas. After all, it seems harmless and is basically a statement, recognized by the government, to give the world another bow in it's string to shoot into the heart of some dazzling "truths"/insights- on more levels than one. Again, I think Christianity could be helped by such movements as these.
Anyway , if Christianity is relevant to our society, and the up and coming youth, then it must be in touch with the word and the changes in it, otherwise people will know and see through any false , irrelevant ideologies . Basically the outdated stuff will be confined to history books and nothing more (except maybe databases
As for eternal truths why have you put inverted commas around it? I would thought for a Christians there were some eternal truths that you could understand for yourself.
Do you think you could mention one or two eternal truths? (I nearly put inverted commas myself there... HMmmm )
