    "Three Easy Questions"


    1. Do we who post to this internet 'spirituality' forum have 'spiritual' needs?

    2. If so, what are they?

    3. How are 'spiritual' needs fulfilled and by whom?

    My spiritual needs are fulfilled by being out in Nature. I am fortunate in that I live on the shores of a large clean lake and have a nature trail behind the house. I just step out my door and I'm in church.

    This is the closest we have on RHP to a philosophy forum.

    I believe several Spirituality Forum posters participate in the "Debates"
    and "Science Forums". Does the internet offer "philosophy forums"?

    Postscript: Philosophy your major educational interest or an avocation?

    Good point. I don't feel that philosophy is particularly welcome here. I will look around for one.

    Suppose you were hospitalized following a serious air or land travel accident;
    with a debilitating medical condition or long term progressive illness,
    how would your spiritual needs be met in that scenario
    (which could happen to any one of us, irrespective of age)? (gb)

    The problem with "other" philosophy forums (along with any other type of forum), is the amount of time it would take to gain the credibility via which others take you seriously Reveal Hidden Content
    of course not assuming that everybody takes me seriously here - I don\&#039;t debate so much these days, especially given the fundamentalist saturation at present
    enough to not skip over your posts.

    It would be great if there more philosophy-esque topics on these boards and sufficiently many posters equipped to hold a good fight that wanted to get involved. Alas for the foreseeable future we will be discussing whether "G"od meant X with a bit of Y or X with a bit of Z in verse U : V of the book W.

    Seems that would present you with rare opportunities to demolish easy prey.

    Not really; I prey not for food but for sport. Where's the profit in wasting my time laying snares or putting together watertight arguments for the benefit of those who cannot acknowledge them!?
