Religious Naturalism
« on: December 14, 2011, 08:18:25 AM »
Religious naturalism - anybody into this?

Here's a link: http://religiousnaturalist.org/foundation.html

I posted this here, rather than the Religion forum, because the description of that forum associates religion with the supernatural, and religious naturalism categorically denies the existence of the supernatural.  An atheist can be a religious naturalist without contradiction.

it's not for me, but I can see how it could be a positive thing, and far better than most religions. It would certainly be a good thing for us all to treat the natural world with more respect than we do. It does also seem very similar to pantheism, just replacing the idea that 'nature is god' with 'nature is sacred'
