The Spiritual Atheist Speaks: A Living Universe without a God of Religion

So, what's a spiritual atheist? Simply someone who does not believe in the traditional gods and goddess of religion, past or present, but allows for the possibility that somehow the universe is deliberate. We often are criticized by both believers and regular atheists alike. But that's OK. We're always open to new information. And so far, there has been no significant proof to the contrary.

Having said that, I prefer the minds of the atheists over the believers, though. Why? They think more. They aren't as closed. In fact, here is a small selection of quotes from a great little site called The Daily Atheist Quote:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? Epicurus

There once was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time was called the Dark Ages. Richard Lederer

It ain’t those parts of the Bible that I can’t understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand. Mark Twain
