Spinoza had an interesting take.

Breathing - it's more art than science.

You might well disagree with me on that point and that's perfectly fine but, casting baseless assertions about my level knowledge is unnecessary. Wink
Anyone who thinks Barack Obama is a liberal is pretty uninformed.

I apologize for using 'uninformed', that was a poor choice of words.

However, he is not overtly political except about secularism, so I'm not sure what it is you object to.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Well, he's certainly not a liberal in the true sense of the word, which is why I said modern liberal. And given the the most right leaning member of the right wing of the US political monstrosity are on the lest of true liberal ideals, Obama is indeed a big government, socialist leaning, modern liberal. The fact that he murders innocents with flying robots doesn't make him a conservative.

No worries Chas. You're right that Dawkins is not politically active in general. My remark was somewhat tongue in cheek but from where I sit, being an anarchist, pretty much everyone is wrong when they talk politics so perhaps the audience for my pun wasn't the correct one. Unsure

Being an anarchist in a sea of statists is kinda like being an atheist at the Vatican...

Does this Pantheism make my butt look big?

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

RE: Thoughts on Pantheism?
My views on pantheism are more philosophical in nature really.

I am aware of myself... yet I am also aware that I live on this planet and share it with other life. This planet and all its life are in this solar system/galaxy/universe.

I believe I am part of something much bigger than myself, this doesnt mean that that I believe that the universe is "god" although I suppose I have no other label to attribute to myself for my beliefs Consider

You're never going to say the things you want to say.
The things you want to change will usually stay that way
The promises you break outweigh the ones you keep.
Paint upon the wall for the hundredth time.
