It's a feeling I have
I have a feeling too, but mine made me decide to not subject any child of mine to the hell-scape that is our future. I don't have kids and have a vasectomy. That should tell you how strong my feeling is.
I also give credence to prophecies that have been made many times by just as many cultures, races and religions.
Absolutely! I am an Atheist, but I too have to give credence to this tangible evidence. How did these Cultures share these predictions? We are both ignorant of this answer, I come at it more of a scientific mindset and you from more of a Metaphysical one. The difference is you have to die to get your answers. I keep looking for mine here in reality.
Where you see mysticism and magic I see answers in Anthropology, Biology, Physics, Astronomy and so on... Humans are creatures of Habit. Our short lifespan makes us forget even the harshest of lessons....
You say there is no evidence of such an awakening. You are wrong. Just look around you here for example. There are many here that I am more than sure are in agreement.
Look around you! Next time you have a large family gathering talk about the stuff we talk about here with the same passion and interest. I would find it hard to believe the majority in your family wouldn't think you were a nut or started doing drugs. If I am wrong, do you have a sister?
We are no evidence of an Awakening. The human race is face asleep. We are a snore at most.
Spirituality is growing, even some religions.
And this is a good thing? We are headed for doom and you think burying your head in the sand and following a mindset that is all about reward after death is a good thing?
This is why I am so rabid in may Anti-Theism. Religion will be our undoing.
