Thanks Metamag, I do enjoy TED talks.

This article and TED talk speaks to me immensely. I appreciate the writings of Eric Maisel who speaks on this topic of creating meaning in our lives. I've tried starting topics such as this one on other sites but they have never taken off. Perhaps they didn't have a fight factor or are too focused on psychology and emotional issues.

I like de Botton's view of Atheism 2.0 maybe because it addresses the issue of "what's next" after you figure out that there is no God. It doesn't argue or condemn but attempts to build some sort of future that addresses our emotional needs or making of meaning. It focuses on what I consider to be true spirituality.
