Non-theistic "religion"!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Cesar Deicide Oct 21, 2013. 99 Replies

I'm interested in starting one. I think we need to take a lot of the positives from religion, and none of the negatives.  What do you think?Continue

Steve Fraser commented on Steve Armitstead's blog post 'Do atheists believe in spirituality?'
"If you don't believe in this: "the existence of a god or gods, specifically of a creator who intervenes in the universe.", then you are an atheist. You can believe in spirits, who are not god(s), and be an atheist."

"Really? Interesting, since the Wikipedia entry on Sikhism opens with the following paragraph: Sikhism, or known in Punjabi as Sikhi,[note 1] (/ˈsiːkɨzəm/ or /ˈsɪkɨzəm/; Punjabi: ਸਿੱਖੀ, sikkhī, IPA: [ˈsɪkːʰiː]) is a monotheistic religion founded…"

"I didn't know about Sikhism being theistic. Nowhere i read, meaning wikipedia and the few Sikhs in /r/DebateReligion, mention any god and some, meaning one believer, mentioned that their religion doesn't believe in a god. They use the idea…"

"Atheism already has some saints. Case in point: Christopher Hitchens, though I can't help but notice that he has been quoted less frequently since his anti-peacenik remarks have been talked about."

""Next thing you know they'll say we need priests" I see no correlation. Much if not most of human social interaction has its history in religion. Now that we're dismissing the religious bit, we are also, unfortunately, losing…"

"That is because they are likely to be human goals and values, so humans in all religions will share those. It isn't the religion that drives morals, its humans.  Our moral code evolves continuously, and has far outstripped the moral code…"

I saw that exchange.  I wonder if you are aware that sometimes transient people come here to 'test' their faith.  This is a community of hardened skeptics.  Many of them have rejected religion in an angry manner.  They resent the fact that they feel as if they were conned, and have thus determined not to believe anything without evidence.  Unfortunately, that has a knock on effect, and your seeming assertion that something could be taken in faith, hits that sore place.  I hope you realise it isn't about you, its about the subject of faith.  However, its nice to have you here and I hope that you continue to persevere in sharing your views on other subjects too  :)
