Greetings, Deb! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Hi Deb! Have a very happy birthday. (I agree with you so much about the inappropriateness of something wanting to be worshipped. In my profile I have the following quote: "Loving beings are characterized by selflessness, not egotism. They do not wish to be worshipped, narcissistic ones do. They wish to inspire others to be as good even better than they, not render them prostrate. There may be no double standards in the definition of love." I also agree that there might be a spiritual realm in that I do not see the laws of physics explaining emotional existence.) Once again, have a very happy birthday.
