Subject: RE: BS: Freedom From Religion convention(US of course)
religion is not, imo, spirituality. Although religions may purport to have spirituality as some part of their plan. Spirituality stands alone without any of the claptrap of any known religion, imo.

I couldn't agree more. Having spent half my life in religion and the other half happily unshackled from it, I definitely think that the spirituality that does without an invented deity and that revels in the magnificent ordinariness of the natural world in all its beauty and complexity forms a far more satisfying basis for a happy life.
