Hello!
I'm a regular user over at AF.org and I've heard whispers of this place so I thought I would check it out.

I'm from Lawn Guyland, NY, I'm in my senior year at a university. I was raised Catholic but it feels like ancient history at this point. I've been atheist for quite some time. I guess I would call myself "spiritual," if you judge spirituality by how many Alan Watts lectures I've listened to and how many books on Taoism I've read. Tongue

Look forward to interacting with you all.

The term or the use of quotes? Or both?

The term, it's vague and I think I've heard as many definitions for it as there are people.

RE: Hello!
This might help.

A useful example of spiriturality

Hello Aegon. I'm intrigued by someone your age who has listened to so much Alan Watts. I confess I've even read a few books. He often enough comes off as the drunken, ego (barely) suppressed guy he was. But I found his "The Wisdom of Insecurity" brilliant. Anyhow, have fun.

Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”
