We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Nature has some key dualisms and we know that humans have many dualisms (most of them man-made). The Cartesian Dualism is a significant man-made dualistic concept separating mind (psyche) and body (soma). This mind-body split continues to be a major worldview for many people. However, the Abrahamic religions take this mind-body split and turn it into a dualistic spirit-body split. The spirit-body split has dramatically divided the spiritual world from the material world, and has given us the worldview of super-naturalism. Supernaturalism makes spirit superior to the physical <-----> superior to the natural. It was exactly this spirit-body split that profoundly complicated and hampered my ability to experience Nature, human nature, and most sadly my own nature. The concept of supernaturalism has done alot of damage to human beings.

My limited understanding of Abrahamic and desert religions is they tend to be binary whereas subtropical and tropical  people (religions) tend to have a broader base of  'spirits, or gods.'
