← Atheism could be science's contribution to religion

Thor'Ungal's Avatar Jump to comment 69 by Thor'Ungal

This somewhat reminds me of a sermon at the Unitarians group I attend on "spirituality". I always had a problem with the word (so does the minister I think, she just doesn't have a better word). What made it all a little surreal was the way the term was redefined. When finished the term made Richard and Dan look more spiritual than just about any priest or new ager I've ever seen.

I think NOMA is a twin edged sword for these people, it cuts both ways. Listening to Rowan Williams on "The Genius or Charles Darwin PT3" gives one pause to realize that the whole thing is imploding from the inside.

"the only contribution that science can make to the ideas of religion is atheism"

and most them don't even realize it's happening. Good riddance if you ask me.
