Read some of Wordsworth's poetry.
William Wordsworth? You do know he was a transcendentalists, but still a Christian? You can be a Christian and not be religions and that is exactly what he was. A non-religious Christian who believed in God. By all means he was not an atheist..So how does this tie into so called atheist spirituality now?

Just returned from a memorial service for my secretary, who died August 19 at age 44. She was diagnosed with stage 4 very aggressive cancer, given two months to live. She died almost exactly two months later. Leaves behind two daughters, 16 and 14. She was a wonderful person and a great secretary. I'll miss her.
One more reason why I find it impossible to believe there's a god out there somewhere.
Sorry for your loss, my man. Death is never an easy thing to deal with.

Chapters 18 and 20 of Leviticus, which form part of the Holiness code and list prohibited forms of intercourse, contain the following verses:
"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination."
"If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."
The two verses have historically been interpreted by Jews and Christians as clear blanket prohibitions against homosexual acts.
It seems you're interpreting them the same way as the Christians and Jews you mentioned, incorrectly. The words themselves are correct, but the people those laws pertain to do not pertain to Christians. Those are Levitical laws. Guess who they are intended for?

The Bible says elsewhere that homosexuality is an abomination. But right next to homosexuality is adultery and promiscuity (assuming both refer to heterosexual acts).

By your logic (ahem), God "wants to kill" everyone.

You make no sense.

I gave you three biblical(chosen from out of several more available) verses that say the opposite of what you assert. It says it in black and white in your bible.

I sure didn't write it.

I don't need to rewrite a thing, as a matter of fact, I find that it's Christians who are "rewriting" or trying to reinterpret what is found in that bible, and oft times wish they could edit out many parts.
I'll give you a hint on why that's nuts, m'kay punkin? Jesus is God, He's not human.
So the Jesus! wasn't human.

Not much of a sacrifice, was it.

What kind on a sacrifice is it for a deity to sacrifice itself to itself when it wasn't a sacrifice at all?

None.
Oh but there's more!

"...and that your own death is a guarantee of eternal life..."
There's no guarantee. Our actions, our free will choices, enforce no guarantee.
So, there's no guarantee - and - all of it hinges on belief.

Your worldview is limited by your indoctrination.
There are Liberal Atheists, Conservative Atheists, Pro-choice Atheists, Anti-choice Atheists, Skeptical Atheists, non Skeptical Atheists, Open Carry Atheists, Gun Control Atheists.
Atheism is the rejection of the ideas of Gods because of the lack of supporting evidence. All the other issues are not related to Atheism. Secular Humanism has a more defined set of morality.
Spirituality is not defined by the narrow-minded views of Christianity. There are atheists that believe in souls and an afterlife. Spiritual is not, however, limited to the non-demonstrable supernatural. In fact, the confirmation bias you apply to the spiritual feeling you get when you pray or think of Jesus, or whatever, is no different than the feeling someone gets from a moving song, book, movie, poem, or piece of artwork. The mass hysteria of a group setting, like church or a concert hall, amplifies the feelings. A musical spiritual experience is just as valid as one that you have concocted from your culturally-conditioned, dogmatic beliefs.
The term spiritual,is purposefully vague, and like god belief, is profoundly personal. Staring at a baby and feeling warm feelings is no less valid for an atheist than it is for a theist. That you can't understand this is a direct indictment of your indoctrination.
Seems to me your world view is the one that is limited and narrow minded. An open minded person can see the world beyond them and are open to the possibilities. A closed minded person does not believe in anything higher than them and is closed to any other possibility except their own conclusion.

I have yet to met an atheist that believes in souls and an afterlife; that contradicts everything they claim.

You said, "There are atheists that believe in souls and an afterlife. Spiritual is not, however, limited to the non-demonstrable supernatural." Can you explain how a person can be atheist but believe in an afterlife?

I couldn't disagree more.

Your comment about "rote-learned anthropology" doesn't flatter you. Her field is a cooperative effort, and she is engaged in a centuries long dialogue that has generated a body of knowledge, some firmly established and accepted by most, some less settled.

I can tell you what we call a practicing physician who significantly violates best professional standards and practices: quack and defendant.

A definition of religion:

A pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance.

Atheism is your religion, based on your fervent love and defense of it.

Your church has a violent, sordid history. Yes the crime of molestation occurs everywhere, but, it is the RICO-style cover up that paints your church as evil.

You tactic of pretending that others are angry because they point out the immoral acts of your vile church,a church that is being abandoned in droves in First World nations, is as ridiculous as your vile attitude.
I read this in the paper this morning: New York City has a priest shortage. So you see, there is some good news in the world.... To give you an idea how bad it is, earlier today in Brooklyn an alter boy had to grope himself.
I live on the Ohio River and yes, sewage does go right into the river.

Yes, the Catholic Church covers up molestation, but that is not EVERY church or my church and I doubt it is" the church" most of the posters here even attend. However, many lawyers molest children and they know how to get out of it. Doctors and Dentist molest and they also have the money to cover it up.

I thought only ones who "prey" on this forum were atheist? I do not attend church services. However, when I pray, it is not about attending church more often either.

You seem to have a homophone problem. Just saying prey and pray are not the same..lol

Nailed to a cross, he looked human, allegedly.
