I'm thinking that if you're a bullshitter you don't like to be CALLED on your bullshit.
"Spirituality, in a narrow sense, concerns itself with matters of the spirit."
Oh, well, guess that clears thing up. LOL
The English word "spirit" has many differing meanings and connotations, but commonly refers to a supernatural being or essence — transcendent and therefore metaphysical in its nature.
Really? I can't make up my mind if I'm being 'dazzled' or 'baffled' here.
Metaphysics, a branch of philosophy dealing with aspects of the ultimate nature of reality
Oh, I see, 'they' pretend to be doing a little dazzling AND a little baffling here, because following the word-trail Spirituality had to do with Metaphysics which is 'really' the study of spiritual things, isn't it? Let's see.
Metaphysics investigates principles of reality transcending those of any particular science.
So, spirituality is looking for a deeper understanding of reality, going beyond science then? How would one go about that?
Cosmology deals with the world as the totality of all phenomena in space and time.
Here we seem to be drifting away from spirituality all together.
Ontology is the study of the nature of being, existence or reality in general, as well as of the basic categories of being and their relations.
This branch of Metaphysics seems like a better lead to discover what spirituality is all about, yes?
After much hemming and hawing, ontologists ask, "Why does anything exist rather than nothing? (This overlaps with questions in cosmology.) "
But where is the elusive spirituality?
This drivel about cosmology and ontology seems to be going nowhere.
Spirituality apparently concerns the supernatural which pertains to an order of existence beyond the scientifically visible universe.
Concepts in the supernatural domain are closely related to concepts in religious spirituality.
I see, so spirituality is a concept closely related to the supernatural and the supernatural is closely related to spirituality.
Ah yes, I see now, don't you?
