There is no Creator in Hinduism.

Thats the entire point of the symbolism of not worshiping Brahma.

From the Indian perspective, the notion of a Creator was the stupidest view around.

Thats why Indian philosophies such as Buddhism, Samkhya, Vedanta, Jainism, Vaisesika etc. easily refuted a Creator.

If you don't believe in a Creator, but are still spiritual, you might be closer to a Hindu.

Sam Harris promotes Advaita Vedanta, a Hindu philosophy, in his book "Waking Up".

Yes yes you mentioned this all before. Plenty of atheists and other things believe in benefits or attributes of spirituality are real. New Agey beliefs are most popular in the US's strongest non-deity believing sections, as in the Upper North West coast of the country. There's plenty of ways you can think and not believe in a God, and plenty of ways you're still believing in Gods and unfounded realities, whether or not you think there is a creator god or not.

Actually, I never mentioned Advaita Vedanta before.
