Future Vision
So do you think the world will learn to get along?

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul

Spiritual Experience
We are all capable of the same spiritual experiences, though fundamentalist Christians have expressed complete bewilderment at any atheist being able to experience that, just from their own definitions.
I am arguing with jar in another thread on whether a dramatic transformation is needed to experience spirituality. Your input helps me here...

The feeling I got when my wife wanted to give up during child birth and I encouraged her over the line, I can only describe as spiritual.

I don't know that I could have described that as spiritual. All my concentration was on my wife's well-being.


Perhaps by focusing on others rather than ourselves is evidence of a transformation of sorts. Of course I've never been married...

Re: Childbirth
Does anyone really understand what anyone else feels or believes?

Re: Childbirth
I don't believe it's source is really God.
Seeing as how you have "set God aside for the moment" how would you conclude that the source was human nature and interaction rather than God Himself?
