  •  Conceptually, Atheism is not there to be enough. (1+ / 0-)

    Is not believing in little pink elephants, puff the magic dragon and silvery unicorns enough...? Of course not.

    One can not point to a logical point of view and trying to define it as something more than it should be and that it should 'be enough' in other areas of life as if that one piece of knowledge should provide a nurturing/nourishment for one.

    If that's so, then by your example 2+2=4 is not enough either...and also as pointless to ascribe any more 'spiritual' meaning or depth to it.

    The Theory of Gravity is not enough.
    E=MC squared is not enough.

    Then again, Religion was never enough either, unless one likes to depend on crutches - crediting a (G)(g)od and/or blaming a devil/demon for things.

    No (G)(g)od makes the world the way it is. We do.

      I'm glad you said that. I agree.
