Just a quick introduction
I'm a 45 year old construction worker from the upper Midwest. I've lead a basically agnostic life, without really confirming any concrete position on the matter of belief. After watching the damage that fundamentalists of all stripes are doing to our nation and world, for some time now, however, I've been trying to do just that. It's turned out to be much harder than I thought. The whole matter of some sort of afterlife just seems to be a sticking point for me. Dumping the magic sky-daddy was peanuts. I've doubted him since I've been able to understand who he was supposed to be. The hazier "spirit" thing though, is a harder question, for me.

That's somewhere in Murika, right?

The 'afterlife' thing usually relates to fear of the unknown.
It's a basic human survival instinct.

Get in touch with your inner ape and drown your fears in hazy spirits.

And welcome aboard the reality train.

Please, explain the 'spirit' thing. I'm intrigued. Also, welcome to the forum! Wink
