Atheistic Spirituality

Started this discussion. Last reply by John Dodds Mar 20. 60 Replies

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…Continue

Hi I'm an ENT

Started this discussion. Last reply by Christopher Wild May 14, 2011. 3 Replies

Well at least I have been up until reading a post here that asserts that an atheist is not someone who believes there is no god but, someone who merely doesn't believe in god. If this assertion is…Continue

"I wish that i could use awful - filled with awe, but that has also been subverted to another meaning. I am told that I am extremely logical and skeptical by theists. They all tell me that it's amazing that I am highly spiritual because of my…"

"Is that not profound? Without feelings, are we not just robots? Machinery does not (yet) have awe of the universe or feelings of connections to it, much less longings to connect and understand.. and feel. Reticence to embrace (or even experience or…"

Unseen replied to Epiphileon's discussion 'Atheistic Spirituality'
"I don't believe in spirits, souls, or ghosts. Those are all examples of a kind of spirit. The only other kind of spirit I know of is, spirit in the sense of enthusiasm or pluckiness, as in "school spirit" or "team spirit."…"

"I have recently noticed that the word spirituality is more and more common in media. I personally think it's a ridiculous copout. Canada has many closeted agnostics. I specify agnostics because I have never met an "atheist" who…"

"Here is a good resource page, Understanding Evolution.   Since this is a friend I won't recommend my line for belligerents who throw the "just a theory" line at me, i.e. "I refuse to insult your intelligence by believing you…"

Epiphileon replied to Merlin Mercer's discussion 'Inevitable Morality'
"Good day Merlin, and thank you. I'm not sure what you mean by "built into our conscience", and I've seen a number of references to morality being genetic. I would in no way support the idea that morality is genetically…"

Epiphileon replied to Merlin Mercer's discussion 'Inevitable Morality'
"Yes Steve I am well aware of that, other abilities that may fit the notion of "fittest" though could be deceit,  manipulation, and ruthless selfishness."

Epiphileon replied to Merlin Mercer's discussion 'Inevitable Morality'
"This was one of my first questions after rejecting Christianity, and accepting a natural science interpretation of reality. A problem here is that whatever one decides upon as morality, is in a sense, an entirely unnatural phenomenon. Unless of…"

Albert Bakker replied to Epiphileon's discussion 'Atheistic Spirituality'
"Well, you can in principle spin this out almost endlessly. What about a derivative, like getting inspiration (breathing into) ? That can be construed to mean sets of ideas that come from some supernatural realm into your head by virtue of you being…"

"There's a reason pi is an irrational number, but it certainly is not "intelligent design.""

Epiphileon replied to IEatDinosaurMeat's discussion 'Just a theory'
"Just an FYI from a former evangelic preacher man, most protestants who know their doctrine will dismiss this, as the pope is at best a heretic, and at worst the anti-Christ."

About Me:
Practically I'm an atheist, totally defensibly, I'm an empirical non-theist. I by no means think that is a cop out, there is just no way I know of that the possible existence of something that could be called "god:" can be absolutely ruled out. So as an ENT (being able to call myself that may have a little to do with it) I state that in the creation of "what is" as well as the development of life on Earth, there is absolutely no necessity of, nor evidence for any god like entity.

53-58
