Not at all. <br />
Religion requires faith, dogma, and worship while spirituality merely requires faith. Sometimes I've taken a leap of faith over a bush or fence without knowing what is on the other side. That is a spiritual act.
Naturalist nonsense. Words only have demonstrable meaning according to the function in specific contexts. Naturalists assert everything is natural which is a demonstrably meaningless metaphysical statement.
Sounds about right.
Again, words only have demonstrable meaning according to their function in specific contexts. The context is what determines the word's meaning which is why two people who don't even speak the same language can teach each other the meaning of words. Which, of course, also explain your confusion over my comment on naturalism.
Cool. Whatever you think you figured out what is important is that you think it is meaningful. :)
If it is defined then not so vague, but perhaps people just use it when they run out of words to describe what they're dealing with... as for me, I'm learning more words and concepts because I like being able to rationalize everything, even if it comes from a place which is differently rational.
Yup. If you believe in something, you should at the very least be able to describe what it is you believe.
the only definition you need for spiritual is your own.
it's not a simple thing young rabbit, but it is your own to figure out.
Be as the frog in the pond
That is because it cannot be defined. The spirit is exactly what words are not :)
Y'see, to me that just suggests a limited imagination...
One might say that statement is limited imagination. If something is too great to conceive, how can it be imagined?
Vague is a polite word. I prefer "Bullshit". When someone says they are "spiritual" It simply means that they reserve the right to believe in something, not sure what, but no one better tell them to do something that they don't want to do. It's a total Cop-Out.
I've accepted vague as part of the word. No one really understands what it means but they use it to describe something that they don't fully understand. Vague fits. :)
Maybe I explained that wrong. It is kind of like using the word weird. You don't know exactly what it is supposed to be but it is off of normal, supernatural or just strange but in a way unknown to you.
