Spiritual? ME?

I'm not religious and see the dangers, but find many hardline atheists quite insufferable and pig-headed given that they can't prove their belief either. Were Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot religious? Is Jonathan Ross? Mind you, what the hell does 'spiritual' mean, or is it just the lay term for narcissism?


  1. I don't much give a toss whether people believe or not (I do). The only thing I really, really never want to hear again--because it might drive me to murder, which is, as you know, generally frowned-upon by systems both divine and human--is this: "I'm not religious; I'm spiritual."

    I'm going to refrain from saying anything more, because we're all mortal, and thus limited in our time. We're going to die one day, you know.

  2. I'm with you on the 'not religious but spiritual', Kel. But aren't you constrained, as a Catholic, to care whether others believe or not?
