I was going to call this my “Thought of the Day,” but it’s really something I’ve thought about for a long while …
I consider myself:
a-supernatural (there is nothing beyond, beneath, behind the natural universe)
a-religious (having no religious beliefs)
a-spiritual (since it’s never been clear what that word means)
a-theist (no belief in a god, gods or divinities)
To be very clear, none of this “Statement of Non-Faith” means I am “anti” religious, “anti” faith, and it especially does not mean I am “anti”-people of faith.
As I have said many times before, I am “Pro” many more things than I am “A” or “Anti.” We can’t base our lives on the negatives when there is so much that is positive in life. And again, this is one main reason I refer to myself as a freethinker rather than an atheist.
It may be most important to emphasize that I do not consider myself:
I am, after all
That’s my thought of the day … and a lifetime!
