"Well, I can tell you this, if a majority of Americans were atheist, Oprah would find a way to express her approval of their suddenly existant 'awe' and then tailor her network and magazine to appeal to them. If she interviewed one of those…"

"I think it's even more awe-inspiring to appreciate the beauty of the world for what it is, a natural phenomena that took millions of years to develop, and not because it was put there by some creator (boring!). I feel awe for the world almost…"

"I expect that the only thing speeking is Oprah's bank account. It is tempting to suggest that the more knowledge one has about the world, the greater could be one's 'awe'. Sadly while this is tempting, it seems to be just one…"

I've got Oprah's awe

Not too long ago Diana Nyad, the Olympic swimmer, was being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and happened to mention she was an atheist.  Oprah made the comment that she didn’t see how atheists could possibly have that sense of awe that people who believed in god had.  Now don’t get me wrong, I do not dislike Oprah, but how fucking arrogant is that?  I feel a sense of awe every morning when I go out and gaze up at the starts and see the big dipper.  I couldn’t see it last night, so I know that this…See More

Ken Fredrick replied to JP Prater's discussion 'Does this bother anyone?'
"If it's after a religious debate in which I've bested them and that's their end argument,  I just say, "That's just like masturbating.  It might make you feel good, but it doesn't do anything for me". But…"
