discount knowledge based on something other than observation and reason. I
argue it’s not necessary to postulate God or that the universe, its life
/ humans had a Creator. Their existence can be explained by forces acting
on matter and random chance. So the universe has no purpose or
notion of good and evil, other than the meaning and value that we give it.
Life involves only physical and chemical processes, not some vital spirit.
Some day scientists will create it in the lab. Human spirituality
exists only in minds
(products of brains)!
see life as holistically endowed with something special: spirit, life
force, soul, organizing /creative principle, etc. Life is more
than the sum of its parts
something scientists will create in the lab. (Note: In China the
life force is linked with Ch’i (Qi), in India with prana or kundalini.
Most religions involve belief in spiritual beings: living things with
souls, disembodied spirits, ghosts, angels, that natural objects are
conscious (animism), etc. Traditionally the self-awareness called
consciousness (home of conscience) is thought to reside in souls.)
