Thank you Hunter for such a concise explaination, you have said in words what I feel. Much appreciated :)
I have been through this argument with bewnyfur before and just couldn't be bothered to try and explain all over again. I do get tired of pedantic word games, they achieve very little in learning or understanding.
I see religion as distinctly different to spirituality, and I think that it is possible to acknowledge a force or energy beyond our current understanding, without this being a god, (the personified type, such as the bible god), and without recourse to the bible or other books, that try to set out boundaries for spirituality.
