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

What in the world is spirituality? Some atheists and theists talk about it, does it really exist? If so how does it feel! I dont think i ever experienced tha, seriously!

There is no spirituality amongst Salafis and Wahhabis.. I never felt that before!

But, I've heard that Buddhist have that thing called spirituality when they practice meditation! it's just a meditation after all.

First time I see the question framed like this. LMAOF.

It's based on the very ancient hypothesis that humans have a spirit - somewhere in a vague location of their body, with some schools of thought alleging that there is also a cosmic spirit with which individual spirits can connect - if they try hard enough. A spirit being an immaterial entity somehow independent from the body itself. These people tend to view the animal body as a vessel for a passenger.

Most confuse the natural awe elicited by certain profound perceptual or existential experiences with spirituality. Many view spirituality as a quest to either become more spiritual (whatever it means) or to actually contact this Cosmic Spirit (whatever they call it.)

In the Western world, "spirituality" is often used as the opposite of materialism, which often is viewed as greed or concern only about "material" possessions. 

 

See this from Wikipedias entry of "Spirituality"

 

Sacredness

Social scientists have defined spirituality as the search for "the sacred," where "the sacred" is broadly defined as that which is set apart from the ordinary and worthy of veneration. Spirituality can be sought not only through traditional organized religions, but also through movements such as the feminist theology and ecological spirituality (see Green politics). Spirituality is associated with mental health, managing substance abusemarital functioning, parenting, andcoping. It has been suggested that spirituality also leads to finding purpose and meaning in life.[33]

 

I think one can find meaning in life through our human relationships, our loved ones and friends, the love or passion for our work, for art, etc., without resorting to any mumbo-jumbo, or use the word "spirituality."

Your right Michel.

No need for mirrors.

 A little more information for you to consider.

From Wiktionary.

spirituality (plural spiritualities)

  1. Concern for that which is unseen and intangible, as opposed to physical or mundane.
  2. Appreciation for religious values.
Also from Wikipedia.

Science

Since the scientific revolution, the relationship of science to religion and spirituality has developed in complex ways. Historian John Hedley Brooke describes wide variations: "the natural sciences have been invested with religious meaning, with antireligious implications and, in many contexts, with no religious significance at all."The popular notion of antagonisms between science and religion has historically originated with "thinkers with a social or political ax to grind" rather than with the natural philosophers themselves. Though physical and biological scientists today avoid supernatural explanations to describe reality (see naturalism), many[specify] scientists continue to consider science and spirituality to be complementary, not contradictory.Neuroscientists are trying to learn more about how the brain functions during reported spiritual experiences.

During the twentieth century the relationship between science and spirituality has been influenced both by Freudian psychology, which has accentuated the boundaries between the two areas by accentuating individualism and secularism, and by developments in particle physics, which reopened the debate about complementarity between scientific and religious discourse and rekindled for many an interest in holistic conceptions of reality. These holistic conceptions were championed by New Age spiritualists in a type of quantum mysticism that they claim justifies their spiritual beliefs, though quantum physicists themselves on the whole reject such attempts as being pseudoscientific.

Spiritual is the stuff that leaks out of a dead body.

Must be gaseous then.

The spirit leaving the body can stink sometimes. Which reminds me; What's invisible and smells like carrots? Bunny farts.

hhaaa hhhhaaaaa!
