    Godless Gatherings: Lust for life drives UK atheists to church

    "In challenging times many join to the church for solace and support. But in Britain the great number of atheists has lead to the creation of an essentially new congregation in which religion is taken out of the equation. RT's Polly Boiko asked them what drives non-believers to use the House of God anyway?"

    From our fellow member eaglespirit ...

    "If indeed our higher family and friends are acknowledged by each of us with heartfelt connection, personally, and their direct help matters to us, personally...and if we act with loving intent to materialize this direct help, it will indeed materialize as more of us openly accept their help for the good of all. It is time to imagine them being right here right now right next to us helping us move this all forward...it may seem oversimplified, but I believe they need us to want their help and act upon the very real acceptance of having them right here by our sides.
    In essence, we are them and they are us...but we have to open the door wide for this help to procure.
    And it only takes enough of us doing this in unison, in the now, for it to be."

    Hi Gio,
    Noticed you requested in the thread to have it unmerged and your original title back.
    I changed the title back to 'will share this here ...'
    I will see if I can unmerge Cidersomerset's post, need to consult with a higher skill set than mine.
    UPDATE: I moved two posts to their own thread ... let me know if i missed any posts.

    To the administration ~ these two separate threads were obviously merged with fair and good intent by you all, But again this thread was (is) intended to be ongoing in purpose and duration ... i apologies for not stating the above on the opening post

    Please not ~ i do not wish these two separate threads merged ~ So please return the thread title back to the original ~ 'will share this here'

    thanks in advance ...

    Well, it's nice to see that Taylor Swift finally found her little summer beach bungalow. I was worried she might not be able to find one.

    Hauntingly Beautiful. My new passion. No, not him. The Native American flute.

    These are the folks that got me hooked: Randy Granger and Odell Borg.
    They demonstrate how anyone can play. Odell Borg also has an intermediate series on YouTube.

    Atheism is infinitely closer to the truth of Illuminism or Gnosticism or just plain old rational and critical thinking than any Orthodox belief. Atheists recognize that Biblegod/Allah or insert name of any god here ________ is a logical impossibility and/or the Devil in disguise. They can employ reason simply because their views are not absolutely blindfolded by beliefs. They are a million times more apt to recognize God in themselves than any religious person.

    Religion and spirituality... never the twain shall meet.

    thanks gripreaper ...

    i see you obviously get and understand (or not) what i would like this thread to become ...

    A general all purpose ongoing thread to post and share (items of interest) whenever and whatever any member desires ...
    Especially if there is no need or desire for creating a new thread ...

    ***

    So in that spirit ...

    'will share this here'

    i understand Taylor seems to always act (pretend) to be surprised a lot ..

    The original post reminds me of that scene in irobot where the robots congregate together in the shipping containers. I found that hauntingly eerie the first time I saw that and to paraphrase bender I don't believe they were celebrating robonica
