Replying to LO1150 --

<<<reply>>>>atheists and soul>>>>

The concept of soul (or heart for that matter) is the
matters not, does it, whether it is characterized by some belief in some
anthropormophised "power".....some "god-like" metaphor. Learning, it
seems to me, is best facilitated by free associations....not pidgeon holed
categories. What do you all think????? Myrna

[...quote of prev msg trimmed by your host...]

The authority and force behind the implicit taboos about not talking about
God, consciousness and soul at English-speaking academia in recent
decades made them barren, narcissistic grounds for me. That kind of
institutional mental coercion was for me just as oppressive as unjust
laws. Seems to me that free choice, especially in the realm of thinking, is
extremely important, or perhaps You think that there should be a
separate LO List for soul-talkers??
