Okay, don't attack me here. I am an intellectual atheist which, by definition, means I do not believe in any gods. However, and I realize I'm probably in the minority here, I do actually believe in certain, very specific concepts which could only be interpreted as "supernatural." So what exactly does that make me, were I required to be categorized? The definition of atheism, according to dictionaries, simply means a "lack of belief in deities," which does describe me, since I don't believe any of them exist or ever have existed. And though I do, by all means, believe very strongly in scientific principles and a need for proof when required, I still, due to my own personal experiences, have come to believe in a few concepts that fall somewhere between "New Age" and "Buddhist" philosophies, yet still fit perfectly into neither category. Am I in the minority by saying that I'm an atheist who loathes religion yet claims to believe in certain supernatural concepts regardless? Be nice; I'm sensitive, even online. :)
