    I guess she’s defining secular as a way of life requiring her to reject all attitudes, activities, or other things, that (in her opinion, and in her own right) have no religious or spiritual basis.

    But that’s just her. She speaks for no one but herself.

    We all have our own path and must think for ourselves.

    Let me just add this.

    We must think for ourselves, while at the me time be amenable to the voice of reason and remain vigilant with regards to our own tendencies to establish beliefs based on no evidence.—That is a slippery slope at best and highly problematic and destructive at worst.

    But if someone like to think that crystals have healing properties they shouldn’t give that up because he or she was told to; he should do it because the arguments makes him want to give it up. Or don’t; up to you, as I said. Thanks.

    Crystals? Someone elaborate please…

    Lots of mystics, quacks, fortune-tellers and supernatural woo-mongers, use crystals or crystal balls, as props, and sell them the gullible for faith “healing” etc.

  4. Acquiring the skill (and the bravery!) to fix one irrational belief, gives you the capacity and courage to fix others… often… eventually.

    Evangelist Michael Shermer eventually became an atheist and promoted Skepticism as a necessary mode for rational living. It took almost as long after that for him to shake off the unevidenced beliefs of Libertarianism (the economic religion of the Aspie).
