Awe, With And Without The Gods


Brother Jeff

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine sent me this glorious article, and the Spook of Kryasst who is also somehow magically Him magically inspired me to share it. And, of course, it is possible to experience awe without a belief in God. I experience awe at the incredible beauty of nature every time I hike out in the Alaskan wilderness.

I am often in awe of the beauty of nature, at the wonders of science, and at the joy of friendship.

Thanks for the link.  This is one of the few reasons that I have been holding onto the Agnostic label.  I am often in awe of the amazing scenery here in Nevada and nearby Utah.  I love showing my son what an amazing planet we live in.  It is hard to let go of the idea that awe is only a religious experience.  I'll have to do some more thinking about this.
