You know, you'd think spirituality has something to do with a spirit and wisdom not from earth gained from (a) spirit(s).

I see no spirit anywhere while some say they they are invisible.

What if people in contact with spirit(s) wrote what these entit(y)(ies) had to say and ended up with a religion that way?

How delusional must one be not to believe in the existence of spirits?

Humans gain knowledge of the earth, like science and agriculture. Is there really nothing more to this existence than eating and driving your car or making smartphones in a factory?

How would you know people own a spirit?

If spirits existed they must have been here since the beginning. Is it possible they created man?

Or are spirits just stories people made up to scare their children?

Is religion from spirits or is Trump president of the USA?

Yes... very..


Spiritually would be a vague belief in the supernatural..


Religions are a structured belief in the supernatural..


Cousins maybe, but distant ones I think.

Well though I agree with your point, literally 99.99999999% of human beings have believed in the supernatural..

They have jack to show for it... but they could more fairly call us delusional lol

Here is my opinion on the supernatural??


Why is every cop ration on the planet ignoring the potential profit, unless it is all nonsense..


What I mean is, if you have legit proof of a haunted house, that is literally the most valuable piece of property on the planet..


The laws of physics are literally breaking their.. you would be saturated in scientists, scholars, religions, exc, exc, exc...


So why don’t we see that???


Hell even scams can be intensely profitable.. (ask any psychic, church or ghost hunter show)

imagine how profitable the real thing would be?!!


Literally incalculable value...


So why isn’t Microsoft buying up haunted houses???


Because they are scams.

Lol...


So if ouji boards work, why isn’t Microsoft profiting off of it???


The laws of physics are literally breaking on the board..it’s value to science and commerce is literally unimaginable..


So why are they only sold as kids toys and no one gives a flip but crystal faith healer types??

Religion basically says if I do this then a God will do that.

Yes. Even science and nature can translate. Take electrical universe for example. Space or the top of our atmosphere is positively charged. The ground or Earth is negitavly charged As a negative connection is called a ground. If our body has biomagnetism let's say that's your soul. When your body dies if you have a positively charged biomagnetism or soul it goes up into space or heaven. if your soul or biomagnetism is negatively charged as it goes to the ground or in under the Earth hell.

I have been making some pretty cool connections or maybe just translations of spirituality to science following electric universe. It also seems the more we find out the closer this can be.

Electricity magnetism and water seems to translate often and some old religious texts. I know I threw it out there broadly but other people have made deeper connections as an alternative spirituality and not linking to religion.

Religion suppresses spirituality so I would say that spirituality can only exist without religion.

The answer to the question depends on a person's definition of religion.

If religion includes a huge dude with a beard and flowing robes who lives on a cloud--the answer, for me, is "yes."

God has a spirit, we have a spirit, and angels have/are spirits. We're all capable of interacting with each other whether we believe in religion or not...and whether we realize it or not.

A spirit is a made up story they scare kids with. They often posses people and have knowledge of things. Nothing of interest.

Anyone with brains avoids organized religion like the plague.

We are all capable of speaking to our gods directly.

The middleman was invented for control and profit.

People know what is right and what is wrong, which means they also know the difference between good and bad.

It's a choice. If you gamble, you get what you ask for.
