Is anyone interested in discussing how scientific pantheism and atheism are polar opposites! And that we should stop presenting them as compatible.
Paul Harrison replied
Atheism (in current usage) = disbelief in a creator God or other type of supernatural god.
Scientific pantheism does not believe in those things. Ergo it is compatible with atheism – ie you can be an atheist and also a scientific pantheist.
However, that does not mean it is identical with or equivalent to atheism.
Atheism is simply a negative, about one issue.
Scientific pantheism is a set of positive beliefs and values.
Maybe you can tell us why you think scientific pantheism is not compatible with atheism?
