'I would suggest that atheism is spirituality.'
With all due respect, that is a logical contradiction, and frankly, nonsense. It's like saying churchgoers are agnostics, or that ballplayers are giant purple-colored grasshoppers.
'Darwin did what, show the intent of the thread of life, don't you think?'
Darwin did exactly the opposite. The theory of natural selection demonstrated that no 'intent' was necessary to explain the fossil evidence of the evolution of species.
'It's interesting that "god" would have to "manifest" in order for you to believe.
So what was Jesus? Buddha? Ghandi?'
I don't know whether Jesus or Buddha were actual men or entirely mythical. As for Ghandi, he was a political leader in India, and I don't recall anyone ever claiming he was a manifestation of God. In fact, he was assasinated by a religious fanatic in 1948!
'Telepathy has nothing to do with spirituality. These aren't fork bendings or parlor tricks I'm talking about, this is evidence that there is a conciousness based reality that we have co-existed in that we are just beginning to discover..to "see".'
What 'evidence' are you referring to?
'I don't know what that has to do with God, or even what god is, or even if there is one. That isn't my concern. The "specialness" of being alive and concious however, it just feels cynical to assume that there are billions of us little sparks running around meaninglessly, and then poof, gone.'
The term 'cynical' has quite a history behind it, but I assume you mean 'inclined to question the sincerity and goodness of people's motives and actions, or the value of living; morose, sarcastic, sneering, etc.' (from Webster's.)
There is an element of cynicism and even bitterness in the writings of some atheists. But atheism does not need to be a cause for despare, and I certainly don't feel that way.
In fact, secular humanist philosophers and activists are deeply moral people with a positive vision and philosophy. This is nowhere better expressed than in the Humanist Manifesto 2000: http://www.secularhumanism.org/manifesto/index.htm
'What about "individual cellular conciousness"? That's not conceptual, that's been proven "scientifically".'
I don't know what you're referring to.
