Spiritual Atheists

January 29th, 2010 by Bruce Nielson

I am listening to Radio West’s interview with Krista Tippets from Speaking of Faith. She was asked by a caller if people can be spiritual without a belief in God. She answers, yes, and I fully agree with her. I have had spiritual feelings, hair standing up on the back of your neck type spiritual feelings, being in nature, studying physics, listening to great music, etc. I have no doubt that “spirituality” exists without a belief in God, though I still believe it comes from God even if the person doesn’t realize it.

Holden Caulfield was no Huck Finn

January 29th, 2010 by John Mansfield

Yesterday I heard that J.D. Salinger finally died, and was told by a radio announcer once again that all adolescents identify with Salinger’s creation, Holden Caulfield. You could probably find dozens of writers today claiming the same thing. I can’t think of a single teenager I’ve known who reminds me of that self-absorbed, vulgar whiner. Apparently, though, journalism is teeming such people. When we were assigned the book in high school, I remember mostly mocking all around of the character and his oh-so-authentic speech patterns.

Johnny Lingo would have found this interesting

January 28th, 2010 by John Mansfield

“Instead, the relative difference between partners’ levels of attractiveness appeared to be most important in predicting marital behavior, such that both spouses behaved more positively in relationships in which wives were more attractive than their husbands, but they behaved more negatively in relationships in which husbands were more attractive than their wives.”

More exemplary statesmanship from noted “Mormon Hero”

January 27th, 2010 by GST

From James Taranto:

  • “Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans can come up with is this: Slow down. Stop everything. Let’s start over. If you think you have heard these same excuses before, you are right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said: Slow down. It is too early. Let’s wait. Things aren’t bad enough.”–Sen. Harry Reid on ObamaCare, Dec. 7
  • “Democrat Reid Says ‘No Rush’ on Health Bill”–headline, Reuters, Jan. 26
