I understand what you are semantically nitpicking. That practice is playing with a cat's cradle in Plato's cave after the fire went out.
YaA's belief system (faith) is based in fideism. He throws out critical thought in favor of absurdity.
WITW was criticizing that practice, offering instead that she prefers rationalism.

Might be ridicule, sarcasm, irony, contempt - or is it an allegory?

hypothesis is the idea of things not yet fully tested and realized. proof of things not yet ABSOLUTE.

the names and faces change but the actions remain all to familiar and natural.

A recipe is the promise of a foregone conclusion - except in my kitchen, where it becomes a Moliere script and when tested and realized becomes far gone concoction.
Proof is often times a transient misunderstanding and absolutes are always and certainly questionable.
Joe Friday changed the names, Max Factor changed the faces, there is nothing new under the sun (though I don't know the last time someone lifted it and checked) and inaction is the ultimate achievement of potential. In theory, I might have a hypothetical familiar that is a purple cat, but he's no where to be seen in nature. I knew I never should have trusted that Schrodinger guy to watch him.

atheism as a belief system

At its simplest, pantheism can be ontologically indistinguishable from atheism. Such a pantheism would be belief in nothing beyond the physical universe, but associated with emotions of wonder and awe similar to those that we find in religious belief.

So here is a question; do you believe that there is such a thing as a soul or spirit?
Please leave out the christian god as they have it wrong. Just in general, do living beings have a soul or spirit?

the problem with beliefs is when they aren't tested against reality as a whole and only as one's perceived reality.
Surely even you can see the absurdity of what you're saying here. Or are you to have us believe that you operate at a higher level than us mere mortals? You're tuned into the "real" reality...is that it?

everyone doesn't utilize the same language, cultural experiences, or space/time to assimilate and disseminate understanding.
we mature by testing our beliefs against reality and hopefully we expand our consciousness in so doing.

So now you're copying and pasting from other threads where you failed to defend these arguments?

You should be true to your name and remain silent Harpocrates.

depending on the culture a spirit and soul have slight nuances. one is encapsulated in differentiated matter and the other is undifferentiated matter, or no definitive form.

so yes, mankind as both a materialistic form which can be construed as an energetic equivalent. that energy can be kinetic or potential.

the problem for the observer is that he/she focuses solely on the form. all formulations share an intrinsic quality. it's called energy.

so all things manifest from that ONE thing. energy cannot be created. energy cannot be destroyed. energy simply changes form.

all forms are relative to energy, expressed as the theory of relativity.

e = m(c*c)

relativity means relative as in related.
