Question from a newbie to this forum, but not a newbie Atheist. I have asked many people this, and the answers are as varied as the people.
When we label ourselves Atheist, Agnostic, or whatever, what are your thoughts about "spiritual but not religious?
I've often labeled myself (because humans love to pigeonhole) a "spiritual humanist" or some such, because although I see no god/dess/es personally, I DO think we are connected, a la Jung, etc., through some type of energy that our forebears considered "god" because they had no other way to describe our human connection.
If there is energy, aka spirit, does calling oneself "spiritual" automatically label one as believing in a god?
