2. I'm not an atheist either, in that I believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts

...and in that differential, we have given the name "God" (though "The Great Mystery" works as well)

A lot of atheists, it seems, set themselves up in opposition to the fundie belief that an old bearded white guy is in charge of all destiny.

None of the truly spiritual people I know, or respect, believe that anyway. It's a ludicrous construct of the cosmos....
