The psychology report, published Thursday in the prestigious journal Science, reveals religious belief drops after subjects perform analytical tasks or are exposed to Rodin's sculpture, The Thinker.

No, "god" is what's in your bowel, not your gut.

Religious belief is shit, and those who swallow it are felchbreaths.

The human being is created with the ability to be spiritual, he is also created with the ability to love, exercise authority, be intelligent, and educate others.

That fact, does not make a person any of those things. The person is also created with the ability to satisfy his human desires or satisfy the desires of other beings, especially the Creator, if he believes he is created by Almighty God Jehovah, the Father and God of the Bible.

Being religious means you belong to a religion today, and you practice the requirements of that particular religion. Being a true Christian means you obey the direction of Jesus Christ, based on his teachings in the Bible. This would make you a person trying to imitate the example Jesus set for mankind to obey. John 3:36

A spiritual person knows the Bible is the truth, he knows that there is a Creator, he can also distinguish between a man of God and a hypocrite, he can obey God's word or adjust it to fit his interpretation of it, to satisy his spiritual needs to be a part of this world.
John 17:14

And by "spiritual person" do you mean simply delusional or completely schizophrenic?

A spiritual person is a person who can see Creation is from God, the gift of life is from God, and all good things and perfect promises are from God. A spiritual person knows he can talk to God and knows he can learn the truth from God's word. John 17:17

The fact that there are wicked spirits, that is angels that gave up their relationship with Jehovah God to mingle with man, influence man and mislead man. Wicked demons now, who are ruled by Satan the Devil. 2Corinthians 4:4

It is the person who does not believe God exists, he is delusional, because he imagines he is fine and doesn't need anything from God.

There is no God to need anything from. It is up to us to make a better life for ourselves and those we care for. It is up to us to heal the sick, comfort those in pain; teach the ignorant; and to simply be good people. No deity is involved, just us.

Okay, a complete paranoid schizophrenic.

Religion allows perfectly sane people to believe, en masse, things that only lunatics believe in isolation.

For those who don't get it, pivotal word "analytical".

How could a Christian know anything about spirituality with such an infantile world view? Spirituality is about the experience of connection, awe, mystery and gratitude when contemplating the miracle of existence, and of this amazing universe - not some ghost, holy or otherwise.

The spiritual experience is a highly evolved form of thought, like the experience of humor or love, and not to be confused with mundane ideas like scaring you into obedience with threats of torture, or of bearded old men angrily and judgmentally floating in clouds and watching us. That's primitive, brutal and infantile - not spiritual.

If you were agitated by my use of the word miracle as an atheist, consider this: even a god should marvel at its own existence. It would ponder the inscrutable mystery of existence, that any thing exists at all rather than nothing, including itself. Even a god - no, ESPECIALLY a god - should be amazed that it exists. An evolved mind should have a spiritual experience that includes at least as much awe, mystery and gratitude as we can feel upon realizing such things. Gods are nothing compared to being itself, and like us, must humble themselves upon the realization of the unlikelihood of their own existence. Existence is amazing not just because of what it is, but simply THAT it is - period.

The shallow metaphysical and ethical philosophy of Christianity suffocates the spiritual faculty in man if accepted as taught. Given that - your shabby and stultifying philosophy - how could Christians possibly know what spirituality is better than freethinkers? On what basis could you claim otherwise? Because you believe in ghosts and magic? You don't have a clue. You have stripped your universe of all goodness and exported it into an imaginary ghost living in an imaginary realm.

Christians describe our universe in terms of its inferiority and insignificance, and the evil imbuing it. The universe itself is just a brief transitional phase between creation and apocalypse used to collect a few souls to serve a ghost's black hole of ego. The world is a bad place, as the Christian use of the word "worldly" attests. A Christian is exhorted to turn his attention away from his evil, fleshly, worldly universe and toward an imagined time and place where he will live happily ever after

Christians tell us that there is no good in our universe, which we are told is made only of base matter, and is separate from the god. According to Christian metaphysics, all good resides outside of the universe in the god. Thus, the universe contains only evil, manifest principally in sinful man, and the demon that the god allegedly loosed on us.

Look at your post again. It's all about us being awash in evil, and petitioning an external source of good for help. That's not spirituality. That psychological warfare, a form of terrorism.

Christianity teaches that humanity is inherently evil, and has nothing to offer. We are made of vile flesh born into a world inhabited by demons, and worthy of eternal torment unless rescued. Flesh is a dirty word in Christianity, as in the phrases "of the flesh" and "fleshly desire."

What could be more antithetical to the spiritual journey than that worldview?

You are mistaken, it is Religions that profess to be Christian that teach evil is inherent, not the Bible.

It is Religion that teaches if you are not saved you will burn in hellfire forever, not the Bible.

True Christians, Jehovah's witnesses teach the Bible, not Church doctrine and not what we think.

You are excused for your blasphemy because it is only the person who believes in Almighty God Jehovah, that can commit the unforgivable sin.

I would not bother to read the proof of your belief, I know the truth of God's word the Bible,

False Religion is condemned by Almighty God Jehovah, it does not teach love and peace and unity for mankind through obedience to God's word the Bible.

False Religion keeps the doctrines of Church fathers and their Scholars above the teachings of Jesus. Preachers and teachers today charge much money for their services, money is their god not Almighty God Jehovah, the true God of the Bible.

Satan the Devil has this world believing and doing whatever will satisfy individuals physically and spiritually, he wants you to do your own thing, he certainly has the whole world in his hands.
2 Corinthians 4:4

Satan doesn't care, just so you do not accept the word of God as the fianl authority. Satan is misleading this entire earth away from Jehovah God and everlasting life. If you are among those who believe Church doctrines and refuse to give up false religion and this world ruled by Satan, you will perish with it at Armageddon.
Matthew 7:21

Jesus is having this warning message preached today, that God's Kingdom will destroy all ungodliness, and make all things new in God's new world of righteousness. Only the meek and those who want to be righteous will listen and obey and inherit this earth. Matt. 5:5 Psalm 37:11 &29

Everyone who is not acceptable to Jesus as our Judge will be removed from this earth.

well, consider their disadvantage - how can they refute anything an intelligent rational person writes with sufficient clarity and civility? At most an independent attempt of rebuttal is achieved by very few believers, because the intelligence required to do that is not found in many believers who are on topix. If you were to encounter a well-educated theologian in another place - a debate forum at a good university - it would be a more fair and equal argument. My guess is that there is a substantial education difference between the believers and non-believers on these threads - both qualitatively and quantitatively, the non-believers have learned to think, forone thing.

please cite the comment to which you reply. I probably would agree that they need to believe. I would possibly think that there is something pathological about some of them. I would not use your vocabulary, however. I do not think anyone knows or can know Reality.

somehow your link does not come up as a link in blue ink. generally I prefer to know the key words anyhow. If this is the site I think it is, it discusses much bad behavior by the forces allied with the fundie God, and by the fundie God itself. It is a horrible thing when people who ought to be nice and sensible, and who would not do cruel and vicious things themselves, think it must be OK if God did it - and look for ways to blame humans, even mythical ones like Eve.
