Hello, newbie here
Read many an article that revolves around the belief of the spirit world for want of a better phrase. many threads on here also discussing whether or not an atheist can believe in ghosts and the supernatural. I have always been a non believer of gods and sky fairies and any of there associates , but there has been many an argument that if you believe in the spirit world you must have a belief in gods, enter the holy spirit etc etc, the splashing of holy water to rid of evil spirits and so on, without going far to much into detail I can paint a picture and you can imagine the rest and place the story to it.
As the existence of gods , I believe, was brought about many many many .......blah dee blah years ago for the comfort or control of mankind then this negates the fact that spiritualism has anything whatsoever to do with it as it was a human invention for a human cause. So what I am trying to say is there is no real connection between them, so spirits are a separate entity of there own. I have these beliefs not by the fact that youtube says so, but a personal experience. Also a friend had an experience. I have absolutely no experience or interventions from gods , goddesses , fairies etc etc.
Atheism is a belief in almost anything but gods and the likes, so I suppose it covers the spiritual world, the naturalist world , and maybe a dash of the materialist world. Now you can go into the argument against the church and exorcisms and using that as a connection to gods and spirits, but I have a different view, or angle on that one, lets just say the good out weighs evil, therefor you smother evil with good, good wins, evil gets up and does a runner, so thats my belief.
so do we need another type of belief that mixes a few things together but leaves out the GOD part? Or does atheism cover it all
well i have other things to say but these may materialise as things progress , such as jesus was just a prophet and not the son of....and when jesus was so called born in a barn, was he just marys excuse that she had it away with the local shepard or farmer , so used that as an excuse to get out of it, or was he an abandoned child from someone who did the same with the milkman, mary found him and because she couldn't have her own she said it wa a child from god
Ps i do know what atheism is, that's not the query for debate, over my adult life i have read many an article on many a belief and i dont think new age covers it really
