Good to have this group.
For a non-theistic description of "natural spirituality" I invite members to read and comment on my new book, Life After Faith. I'm sure it won't please every freethinker (and many a theist) but it is one former minister's clearing of possible paths ahead where Nature is the obvious "common ground" for those with faith and those without.

It really is essential to differentiate naturalism as a concept within philosophy, which carries no particular political or behavioral weight, from Thomas Clark's reformulation of naturalism as a spiritual life stance. The notion that such naturalism could form a complete world view and result in a competence to judge all issues is as preposterous of reading too much into "atheism" or even "humanism".

Hi Ajita. I have not written a review of Zeitgeist movement. By review, I meant I viewed the Zeitgeist movie a second time, and the Zeitgeist Addendum movie for the first time. Have you seen them?

Mike, I'm extremely interested in your review of the Zeitgeist movement. Do you have it posted online?
Comment by Mike Layfield on July 26, 2010 at 8:19pm
I've just reviewed the Zeitgeist and Zeitgeist Addendum videos, and to the extent that the Venus Project is informed by them, the only overlap I see is the atheism. All the conspiracy theory stuff strikes me as uncharacteristic of philosophical naturalism. Philosophical naturalists, in my opinion, are more likely to debunk conspiracy theories than to propagate them.

I personally find the Venus Project extremely interesting but that's probably because I happen to be a Transhumanist, not because I'm a Naturalist.

You might be a Pantheist then? :P

I have some 'local' nature photos posted:

Good idea for group, kind of like macro-nature shots enthusiasts...

Welcome to all new members. This group hasn't been quite as active as we had hoped, especially since the community is involved in other online groups where the majority of discussions take place. Please check the other forums on Yahoo and Facebook (we have both a Naturalism page and a group) to see if you'd be interested in joining the community there.

Welcome to the Naturalism group Dawn. We have a group on Facebook as well.
