Atheism Just Won't Do
I discovered last night that “atheist” is an extremely simplistic way of describing my spiritual beliefs. I don’t believe in God, true, but I am something of a dreamer (I heard that’s a line from a Stevie Nicks song–have I mentioned that I loathe her music? and Fleetwood Mac as well?). I don’t believe in literal magic, but I do believe in the effect that ritual has on a person; in the effect that worship of a god brings focus to certain traits that one might want; in the connection between people that seems to exist (call it quantum theory, string theory, or Jungian, if you will). But I don’t believe in the hocus pocus, the invisible man (or people) in the sky. I’m too rational for that. What do they call it, “spiritual but not religious?” It would take me a while to describe it. Perhaps I shall. Read the rest at Rebel Yell...
