Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
may have derailed my thoughts.

Whatever this deep and irrational neumenal experience or belief is, I did not mean that it had to do with heiarchal structures of organized religions, frauds, charlatans, or superstitions conjured up not only to explain it but also give people power over others.

I also object to organized religion hijacking morality and ethics, especially at the expense of those on the secular side of the spectrum.

Bottom line, though, I think this thread proves my main point that I think the religious/non-religious argument is overblown and needlessly divisive.  I mean, no one has attacked me here for these beliefs that I admit are irrational and I have not insisted that I am correct or that others should believe as I do or hold these beliefs.  I think that is the key and this thread supports that in my opinion.
