Words change throughout history. Dictionaries struggle to record this change.
Only if you're writing a high school paper.
I already explained this. If we are to talk about spirituality, we have to define it precisely. If you cannot understand what I'm talking about, you can't comment on my claims.
Me telling you exactly what I mean - as I did when I defined how I am using the word "spirituality."
Skom, you can't be so simple as to think that human experiences are entirely encapsulated by outdated dictionaries. That's like believing that direct translations exist across languages.
Huh? I quite clearly defined it in a previous post. If you can't accept that definition, or attempt to understand what I mean, we can't have a discussion.
This is how discussions work - I clarify what I'm talking about and we discuss it. If you can't follow that, oh well.
Do you want to discuss how dictionaries can be used and what they're for?
Or do you want to discuss how atheists have spiritual experiences?
This word didn't change over time
You and 4 other other people on the internet simply have decided to use it incorrectly
Spiritual still means exactly what is has always meant
You have plenty of words already in the English language to explain extraordinary events that aren't supernatural
Hey, there's one example right there! But there are plenty of ways to describe it without changing the meaning of an already existing word. Its not like you are been cut off from experiences by the dictionary. But you don't believe in the supernatural so why would you use a word that is based on the supernatural to describe your experience?
On now level was this change needed or logical. But I really don't care how you guys want to define it among yourselves. But that doesn't actually change anything
