Who, what, and why
Within this website I explore whether there is a spiritual realm, a supernatural realm, containing God, mind, souls, consciousness with its contents (ideas, emotions, love, reason, etc) — this, from a purely philosophical and unreligious point of view. I first assume there is a spiritual realm so as to explore the implications; then I present my conclusions.
I embrace secular humanism (called merely "humanism" by some, but I don't advocate for all varieties of humanism).
I do not subscribe to the teachings or doctrines of any religious or spiritual group.
I accept provable truth and reject provable error. (There's a lot in between.)
I am not any of these following by occupation: historian, archaeologist, scientist, psychologist, Bible scholar, philosopher — but have a science background, and a B.A. degree in Social Science with emphases on history, psychology, economics, political science, sociology, institutional studies.
It dragged on for many decades:
I don't think of God as gendered, but there is no word in English for a person without reference to gender; so I use he/she.
When I first started this website I postulated the existence of a spiritual realm containing God, souls, mind, consciousness with its contents, and etc. But as a result of subsequent analysis and reflection, I abandoned this view. Rather than rewrite the whole thing with my new view and lose the thoughts I originally had, I instead add comments (and also the "Conclusions" articles).
