Secular people think that they know something that religious people don't know. They do not. Atheism doesn't come from gaining knowledge, atheism comes from rejecting knowledge. Their whole schtick is based on denial.
There is nothing easier than atheism. Just say no.
Spiritual people know everything that atheists know, and more. Having a choice, they choose to enjoy their spiritual awareness. It's a choice, a conscious choice.
Of course, it is possible that spiritual people have a connection and a common existence with the unknowable Intelligence that presides over everything,and unspiritual people don't. Maybe this mundane life really is all that unspiritual people get. Maybe they're right -- for them.
