Questions for you all
I am a religious studies major interested in the thoughts atheists have. If you can please answer one or more of the questions below. You would be greatly helping my research!

What does your faith mean for you at this moment of your journey in life?

How would you describe your spiritual journey in terms of the “geography of life”?

In what sort of “terrain” were you born, e.g. in a nurturing garden or on rocky patch of ground or in a bright flowing river?

Through what sort of geographic changes and spiritual weather did your journey continue?

You might think here about the losses or suffering that have changed your life, or the moments of joy or insight that have colored your life in special ways.

How does your experience of religion play a part on this spiritual journey?

What has held you up or renewed your hope when life seemed most discouraging or hopeless?

What makes life meaningful or worthwhile?

Can you describe the beliefs that are most important in guiding your life?
What is it that you value most in life?

How would you describe your experience of the transcendent dimension of life?

How do you sustain your energy on this spiritual journey?

What symbols or images or rituals are important to your life?
How do you pray? Has this changed for you over the years?

Do you spend time with the Scripture in prayer?


How do your family and friends fit in this spiritual journey?
Are there soul friends who share your spirituality on the journey?

How does the larger world fit into this spiritual journey?

Have you ever “prayed the news”?


How does religion fit into this spiritual journey?
What has religion provided for you?

How has religion challenged you to grow and move ahead?
Has religion been a cause of struggle?

What wisdom have you acquired on this journey? Where are you still growing or struggling?

How would you describe the ground of your hope?

RE: Questions for you all
Asking a bunch of atheists about their spiritual journey isn't going to get you many constructive answers. My suggestion would be to learn what an atheist is, then create some original questions to ask that are specifically aimed at atheists. Frankly, posting the same questions you'd ask a believer seems like you want us to help with your studies, but you can't even be bothered to spend five minutes customizing your questions.

Just a bit of constructive criticism for ya.

Asking if atheists "spend time with the Scripture in prayer" is, well, inane.

1/10, troll moar.

I’m a religiously educated Jew and I describe myself as a theist. I know you asked this question in the “ask an atheist” section, but you did address it to all, and I’d do just about anything to distract myself from homework. So… yeah.

What does your faith mean for you at this moment of your journey in life?
Faith means absolutely nothing to me at all. My religion requires no faith.

How would you describe your spiritual journey in terms of the “geography of life”?
The what?

In what sort of “terrain” were you born, e.g. in a nurturing garden or on rocky patch of ground or in a bright flowing river?
I was born in a hospital.

Through what sort of geographic changes and spiritual weather did your journey continue?
What the heck are you talking about?

Okay, clearly you’re trolling this forum. I’ll go back to doing homework. Angry

Motherland of course.

Sure. But scripture is called Das Kapital.

Seriously though trolling shouldn't be so obvious.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Me thinks you grabbed the wrong questions.

Maybe some of the resident believers will answer.

My answer to every one of your questions would be Facepalm

How does a religious studies major not know what an atheist is?

Yup, with the questions you have, it figures.

Assume that Atheists just hate god rather than understand that we don't actually believe in god.

Go away and learn about atheists and then come back when you actually understand what the hell you are talking about.

You see. All of the above apply to religtards. They don't apply to Atheists so why are you asking?

If I asked you a bunch of questions about the Hindu faith, what relevance would that be to you? Probably about as relevant as asking me to describe my spiritual journey. I am not spiritual, I have never been spiritual and nor is it my intention to ever be.

Now, go away and read about Atheism and understand that some of the greatest philosophers and scientists didn't believe in god.
