Started Mar 13, 2014 0 Replies

The increasing appeal to 'spirituality' in much literature creates confusion and often suggests a religious or mystical connotation. Redefining spirituality in humanistic and secular ways seems…Continue

Greetings, Robert! 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.
