Id like to repeat the AboveTopSecret Slogan
Deny Ignorance maybe should look into it. Hey just sayin
Sorry, just to straighten out a worrying trend I have noticed by some on ATS.
Atheism does NOT equal no spirituality!!!
I am an atheist, meaning that I do not believe in a god, meaning I do not believe in a grand creature that is aware of every single human being and
However I do believe in a possible afterlife [what the heck has that got to do with a god?], I believe in quantum mechanics, multiple universes and
all the shennanigans that can cause.
I have seen ghosts, I believe in astral travel being a very real possibility and I meditate. I actually consider myself 100% more spiritual than most
christians. [Because I learn new things and am willing to incorporate them in my understanding of life compared to a 'dead-end' belief that does not
allow any new information]
I have the feeling that the word 'atheist' is nowadays used as a synonym for 'realists' [people who do not want to hear or believe in anything
that science can not explain yet].
I also have the feeling that some people think that atheists can not have or believe in a soul if they don't believe in a god.
You can have a spiritual centre [soul] in you and it may very well live on, after the body has died. After which it can reflect on the experience it
has learned without
any gods present.
In my world there is only Nature, mother nature who has no consciousness herself but everything is still happening/working beautifully. That includes
EVERYTHING from souls to other dimensions, it just does not include a 'man with a beard or any other being that is made up by people to explain the
[as of yet] unexplainable]
There, I just wanted to clear this up.
