I'm a spiritual atheist, finding plenty of wonder and mystery in the universe from emergent phenomena, without somebody pulling the strings. There's a big place in my own life for something like religion, but without authority — just memes and practices that help to construct subjective meanings and to cope with feelings. A worldview that can play yin to science's yang, not separate (NOMA: pbffthffft!) but fractally intertwined and sometimes, beautifully overlapping.
I'm a computer scientist and work in genome informatics; I sing with my buddies and dance not nearly often enough; and I find my spiritual home at a UU church which has finally called a new, atheist-friendly minister (our first settled such since our beloved gay Buddhist retired).
Hello Paul, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where, like you, we recognise that gods are phoney and religions are cunning frauds used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.
