  1. Very interesting. Soul, spirit, feeling, love, poetic. These words express a meaning that factually can’t be quantified. We all know ( I presume) what we mean when we use these words. However it seems to me they are used as traps by theists to explain god and its mysterious ways. I wonder as Shermer and Harris is dealing with morality are there any scientists out there dealing with categorising these words?
