@Dave B...If one believes in a universal power..ie nature, that we go back from which we came, then there are those who believe that our soul, energy, spirit , whatever u choose to call it, continues on. In order for that to happen, there MUST' be some "blob of an energy source" ..perhaps just the galaxy? Where do we come from if there is no source? (source does NOT have to be a deity..just an energy source). If we only live once...why even be here in the first place? What are we doing here?
What do Atheists think happens to "us" when we die?
Sorry..these are questions that I MUST have answers to for me to understand if I can follow this course. Oh and hell...I'm ready for the answers...so bring 'um on..
@Ava..you're correct in that Witchcraft is NOT a religion, so no deity is necessary or even wanted. It's only a practice. Wiccan's use deity, primarily a Goddess...and there's a shitload of them...made my head swim with so many names and faces...it was crazy.
Ok....so do Atheists believe we have souls?
@Cass..good point (eyeroll)...I stand corrected. I see your point with the difficulty of defining terms as it's typically based on individuality.
I recently read that the world's Atheist population is only 2.3%; Japan and Sweden coming in on top...I was a bit surprised that the percentage wasnt a bit higher?
