John, I am as certain that there is no God as I am that a
man walked on the moon, and equally sure that there is no
non-technological afterlife, as say the proponents of
reincarnation claim. I am less confident in making any
blanket statement about all religions, and especially about
spirituality, as it's still not clear what we should mean
by those terms. I hope to write something on spirituality
soon. Thanks for finally getting back.
