Many people in the U.S. now identify as not having a religion. However, some of them do consider themselves spiritual. Most Atheists prefer hard-facts, non-superstitious thoughts.
However, is the cure for old religion, spirituality without religion? Does it ease people who need a certain crutch away from the worst parts of religion?
I know that most wouldn't find it ideal, but is it a step forward? Or, is it the same as being Christian, Muslim, etc?
