  1. I’d like to think of conscience slightly differently, being an atheist – It is a distraction, between what organized religion tells us not to do and the pursuit of pleasure (what we really want to do).

    1. I think that conscience and religion has nothing in common. Pursuing pleasure is not a bad thing in itself, but it might become a bad thing if it harms or hurt someone. One doesn’t need a religion to have a conscience, I think that humankind has created religions after a need of organising its own spirituality, but again, one can be very spiritual without being religious, and being atheist.

      1. I haven’t been able to nail down what spirituality really means. It is a word I hear often but haven’t been able to figure it out. What would I have to be, to be spiritual – grow my hair, dye it white, have a dreamy, glazed look with a faint smile playing perpetually on my lips? Smoke Trichy hash? (Trichy is a joint in my country of birth, India, which is known for it’s top quality has).

        But seriously. You do make a lot of sense. Forgive my jest.
