Certainly. You use "God" to describe the exhilaration of bonding with nature - I do not associate God with reality. Your emotions about witnessing such natural beauty is firmly founded on your belief that God created Nature. Your scenario would likely give you a warm feeling inside that you might think is the feeling of God. I would experience that warm happiness inside as well, but I would not credit God for it, I would describe it as experiencing Nature. Are we having the same experience, only describing it differently?So you can walk outside on a crystal clear moonless night there in beautiful West Virginia and gaze up into infinity and not sense the presence of God?
Here is a test to apply to your faith if you are bold enough to face up to Atheism. Make a list of the main principles of Christianity that you support and believe most passionately. Each time the name: God is used (or Jesus, spirit, Buddha, whoever) replace it with "Nature". Are your statements still true or have their meanings changed?
Nature is what you can witness as real - God is what you believe about it. The idea that there is no God does not make Nature any less amazing.
