Atheism is too dull, too barren and too bland to be appealing for me. It does not quench my philosophical and spiritual mind. Agnosticism is much more engaging.

Too dull, too barren and too bland, what you are describing is religion. When faced with something they cannot explain, those of faith will bring in the supernatural in a desperate attempt at clarity; what they are really doing is the opposite. How bland is that? The free mind is able to go beyond the equivocal and the myopic, There is so much out there, embrace it, don't stagnate in a world of magic that doesn't exist.


I don't care. I can't base my view of reality on how others feel about it, and I'm even less inclined to consider their opinions when they start talking about metaphysical nonsense like the "spiritual mind."

Philosophy is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat.
Metaphysics is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn't there.
Theology is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn't there, and shouting "I found it!"
Science is like being in a dark room looking for a black cat while using a flashlight.

Hope you have fun looking for that black cat


Your post is not very dull, too bland.


Well, aren't we just a bit judgmental? You can speak only for yourself. I am an atheist and paradoxically, I am spiritual.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Truth isn't a fashion or a choice. Your feelings about liking or accepting it are irrelevant.

Focus on the truth, regardless of your feelings or labels you want to apply to it.


You use "philosophical and spiritual" in the same sentence as complimentary terms?
Do you also believe in spiritual or occult sciences too?


So, you base your world view and belief system on what’s exciting to think about?? That’s pretty messed up.


So how do you define atheism and agnosticism? Your definitions will probably reveal why you find one bland and one engaging.


I feel exactly the opposite, Just realizing that you don't know if a god exists or not is the first step in actualizing the potential you have as an individual, although it is by all means the most "correct" in terms of accuracy, it is the least pragmatic because it doesn't allow for any true self reflection and makes little or no societal impact. I chose to be atheist because it forces me to accept responsibility for my own actions and motivates me to live life to the fullest.


Whatever works for ya !


buddhism and the vedas are a big step up


So? Agnosticate!
