Why We Don't Need Religion to Give Life Mystery | Media and Culture | AlterNet
Just a word here...atheism and those who claim to be part of this movement has been getting a lot of attention recently and they should. I am not talking about the proving if there is a god or some divine thrower of the dice, but raising the questions about practice that often as Christians and others we do not even think is necessary. I have found http://commonsenseatheism.com/ a helpful resource. This young man gives one many links to a wide group of spiritual issues. I found one with free books from most spiritual traditions to download if you want.
The HH Dahi Lama has been saying lately that we are dealing with two forms of spirituality in humankind, a faith or belief based and a human based spirituality, where there is no need for church, temple, mosque or zendo. I can give you more info on this, leave a comment. I am a bit surprised how Karen Armstrong puts down those who call themselves part of atheism....in her newest book, but Xians have neve been know for being completely open, opps sorry ! Enjoy
