"There is nothing wrong with using the word Spiritual as an atheist. We've already stepped beyond the breach and admitted, accepted, and acknowledged that we don't believe in the supernatural. (wow, just looked at that sentence and shades…"

"Can you define "intuition" in a way that makes sense? Intuition is the power or faculty of attaining to direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference, in other words: beliefs we cannot justify in every…"

"Except that maybe "awe" and "wonder" express the same thing without the baggage."

"This is where you and I diverge. I understand logic quite well. Logic is a form - a form of understanding that allows us to rationally deal with the world around us - lest we be ruled by the lower brain like some animals. This is what I mean by…"

Dale Headley replied to Taryn It Up!'s discussion 'Spirituality'
"Since the sense of the religious experience is inescapably evoked by the word, "spiritual," regardless of how it is meant, I would prefer another word.  The first one that comes to mind is "empathetic," but I think I can do…"

"I am not sure about the attempt to 'define' it. I have been places where I felt 'something', like a vast expanse of connection, or an awareness of deep time. Pyramid Lake Nevada, where you can see successions of extinctions in…"

"Why call it spirituality?  Your so-called "feeling" one's way through a problem is actually still a thought process. It's a mental testing of alternatives. How do I know this? Because it's done by the brain. If you…"

Barry Adamson replied to Taryn It Up!'s discussion 'Spirituality'
"No, spirituality is an acknowledgement of human consciousness.  Weakness and inadequacy only comes from the acceptance of religion, which is fear based.  Spirituality frees the mind up and allows for great pontential to expand the mind in…"

"Yes, as Unseen asks, why believe we have soul? Isn't it just a human construct just as spirituality is?"

Unseen replied to Taryn It Up!'s discussion 'Spirituality'
"So, spirituality is a sensation of weakness and inadequacy(?)."
