Re: Secular Spirituality

Greta, as Marjoram_blues seems to have noticed (since I've stated it repeatedly) I have chosen to focus on the Wikipedia article. And I've just stated above that I'm not saying what Greta believes or should believe, but yet you come back to complain about it. I know my English is not top notch, but...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Unfortunately, CL chooses to focus on certain aspects of the wiki content, despite being corrected. It is fine to be challenged - in the spirit of philosophy. However, this type of continual misrepresentation is not. As noted from the confessions of some participants, they all have done the same, i...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Conde, I have made clear what I see as secular spirituality. I would rather not have the Wiki article attributed to me - I happen to have my own mind which means that my version of secular spirituality does not coincide with Wikipedia's. Why are you attributing things I haven't said to me? Why try ...

Re: REFUTE - my argument that a 'God' is more likely to exist.

Nice retreat: implying that all that nonsense was just a joke. Retreat? I'm waiting for this 'ace' of yours? You just don't worry...yet. I'm not flashing that card, but it's already in my hand. Ooo did I appear worried? What is it gov, let us all gave a gander? "If you don't like how the table is s...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Marj and I could not have made it more clear that secular spirituality need have nothing whatsoever to do with pseudoscience. Your response above is very weak, displaying mechanistic thinking and a general lack of comprehension. There is not much point wasting time unless you can lift your game. Ar...

Re: Secular Spirituality

There is no sense in which I started this discussion with a view to 'endorse a [particular] type of secularism'. There seems to be an instinct to attack any interest in this aspect of the human condition with false accusations. There is no attack on materialism as suggested. Once you plant the seed...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Are Richard Dawkins, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Max Tegmark and Roger Penrose new agers? If so, then I agree with you that New Age romanticism and secular spirituality are synonymous. Seriously, why paint with such a broad brush? I thought you'd be more rigorous. At least the 3 first names, w...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Whether it was tone, style or whatever that did not allow me to embrace the content of the article, I don't put in doubt that the content does reflect what "secular spirituality"is all about. I guess that means that as a secularist, humanist and atheist, I cannot endorse this "secular spirituality"...

Re: Secular Spirituality

I think you could be right. I might look into this further to try and improve my own writing. All the better to relay information and relate to others. At times, to be concise it may sound abrupt. At others, it could reflect emotional state ! However, it is tone according to wiki. 'Two styles, clos...

Re: Secular Spirituality

My ears are in disagreement with yours. The tone of the article is in keeping with wiki's writing guidelines: formal, impersonal and dispassionate. That will be the style, not the tone. The leader of the article includes 3 paragraphs which might be considered enough for those who wish a brief summa...

Re: Secular Spirituality

It might look like it but I don't think it is. There is also no attack on materialism, as far as I am aware. It might be an idea if you would provide the quote where you think it does this. Thanks. OK, maybe is just a suspicion I have about the overall tone of that entry. It sounds so New Age. It's...

Re: REFUTE - my argument that a 'God' is more likely to exist.

The only thing that is confusing me is having to deal with an over educated condescending imbecile, and the fact that you are far more short sighted than an average atheist. I gotta love that post!! You see, imbecility is a condition that denies the possibility of being over educated, so they are c...

Re: Secular Spirituality

What is 'Secular Spirituality' ? Would you agree with the suggestion below that it is 'the ultimate goal of philosophy'? From wiki: According to Robert C. Solomon, an American Professor of Philosophy, "spirituality is coextensive with religion and it is not incompatible with or opposed to science o...
