  •  Well, that's fine (0+ / 0-)

    I think my understanding of the soul is perhaps different than you are ascribing to me, but I don't have a problem with that.

    I don't think we all need to agree and use precisely the same terminology.

    That's exactly what I don't like about churches and organized religion.

    And trust me, I'm no New Ager.

    •  Teminology can be troublesome. (0+ / 0-)

      The classic definition of a soul is something that is separate from the body and often is described as something that exists beyond the death of the body. If that is not what you are talking about, then maybe using a different term or description would be helpful. You described yourself as an atheist, but you would be hard pressed to find an atheist who espouses the idea of a "soul" in any form. Nor would you find many atheists who use the term "divine" to describe any trait of human beings.
