Because I do not claim anything which cannot be backed up independently. I am not talking about what I had for breakfast, since even that could be verified by forensic scientists if I died today and they looked at the contents of my gut!!Quote
And why is it not you who are perpetrating falsehoods?
What bothers me is the way the falsehoods of religion particularly are taught as being objectively true; and similarly the totally non-objectively-evidenced supposed spirits which shamans tell their clients are looking after them or guiding them. That is a falsehood unless one shaman comes up with independent (etc etc) evidence of course.Quote
I have no problems with spirit, it is you who are so bothered by it.
And you are one too yourself,
If everyone used that definition, there would be no problem.Quote
how hilarious. And by the way, spirit is always in motion, and it is just another English word for life and consciousness.
