If OP were wanting to go vegan surely he would have declared it in the original post.
Fair enough, but that is why I suggested it as an alternative to religion....

If you think about it, it is kind of like one... They have a book (albeit a cookbook), they have a dead prophet (albeit a nutritionist/nut bag/Donald Watson).

Gosh, you haven't figured out yet that the OP is a massive troll and lying :ROFL: :X3: . Looking for religion....o_O:ROFL::X3:
Can't look for what isn't there.

On the plus side, my kids came out to me as atheists recently. We never really had talks about it but I always assumed that they were agnostic and they assumed I would be mad if I thought they didn't believe in a god, funny how society conditions us.

Nothing in life has changed any since the talk, we are still the same people and hold the same values/principles. Can just think of atheism not as a belief system but just living your life withess BS

If you're wondering whether you could be spiritual, get into a car with Dimitri and see you if find yourself asking a higher power for help.

I'm 2 mins and already don't agree. "You can't just be the product of a mechanical and meaningless universe". - Uh, actually, yes you can. Does this piece get any better?
Only if your thoughts are mechanical and meaningless too... Atheists do appear to get ever more desperate to get people to believe that superstitious nonsense.

Remind me again how philosophy leads you to the Christian god?

Remind me again after I tell you again that it does not, how it is going to make atheism any less meaningless BS?
I didn’t say it did. Atheism is indeed meaningless BS.

As is Christianity.

So without philosophy as a reference, without Aristotle, prime movers, Aquinas etc, all of which you admit do not lead to the Christian god, can you tell me how your Christian superstitions aren’t nonsense but atheist ones are?
