How to Separate Religion from God: Alan Watts on Spiritual Atheism

I've always rather enjoyed Alan Watts. I haven't always agreed with him in every instance, but he makes more sense than a lot of woo woo types. I use woo woo with all the respect it is due. Here's a video on spiritual atheism that I think makes a lot of sense. You may not think so, but it will get you to thinking. And that's really what New Thought is all about at its core--new thinking. And you thought it was about getting more goodies...

Comments are appreciated...


  1. As existence was probed with ever greater degrees of resolution the quantum,discrete quality of natured was discovered and verified. The prickly people rejoiced. See! We were right~!...Its measurable,quantifiable not nebulous or fuzzy like the goos believe!

    Then came the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.

    The prickly attributes of all we see and experience are inseparable from and dependent upon... RANDOMNESS!! a DISTINCTLY GOOEY ATTRIBUTE.

    The dual/cyclic basis of totality is expressed in the existential/interdependent/inseparable qualities that are both Prickly and Gooey.

    What Beauty!!!

    1. Ah, uncertainty. The most spiritual aspect of the universe. Thanks for the comments.

  2. And it's about the music along the way...

  3. There are scientific materialists who have hijacked physics as corrupt religious leaders have hijacked spirituality...they say, "we have this evidence that supports our prickliness," but they rarely ever make it known that just as much evidence exists for the gooeyness. Everyone is too busy trying to promote their version of the truth to actually see the truth for what it is.

  4. D. McAuliffe: So true. But it would not serve their purposes to suggest that the gooey stuff has any real substance. And don't look for it too soon.
