A contradiction in terms? Perhaps, however, what word would be used otherwise to describe the state of, in a sense, being aware of being the universe, being aware of its self? And further of that awareness being an influential factor in a persons behavior?
Or in other words what word to use, to describe someone whose fundamental interpretation of reality, is an active part of their awareness? In non-atheists it is called spirituality, personally I have no problem with atheistic spirituality, it seems to do the job for me; however it could be problematic. I'm curious what other folks here think.
Spirituality and faith can be applied to a life without including a deity in the equation.I agree, I don't think there is anywhere near the potential problem with 'faith" though, there are plenty of secular examples of its usage.
Infinitely cool, and definitely an, every synapse open, mind blower.
Well don't worry I don't think you're in any danger of that, but they do have meds for it.
