The Gateway Forums About Religious Naturalism Outreach Takeaways from Reddit AMA Reply To: Takeaways from Reddit AMA


    When I give slide-show talks I always begin with who is a naturalist? (takes Everybody’s Story seriously as a core story) and then who is a religious naturalist? (explores it religious potential along interpretive, spiritual, and moral axes). An elevator-speech version of your fine post!

    When I was assembling this list I looked for groups whose core statements gave evidence of a naturalist worldview, even if that worldview wasn’t central to their writings/practice. Some use god-esque language (pantheistic, Great Spirit, etc.) and I for one have zero problem with such interpretations as long as they don’t entail distorting their science-based naturalist understandings.
