I was looking into meditation, and during my separate research on Y!A, a person said that it was absolute nonsense. Now, this answer was given without any further explanation as to why this person didn’t believe that it exist. They just put “Atheist” as their source. And this answer got best answer.
Now, I find this answer interesting, because I’m atheist myself and I know that chakra has very little to do with belief in a God. It’s more about the belief that energy travels through the body. And one can’t say that the concept of energy isn’t logical or that it doesn’t exist, because energy is a major subject in multiple aspects of science (as well as other subjects), and in life in general.
So I would like to hear the opinion of others on this subject. I mean, I don’t know if it is real, but I wouldn’t say that it isn’t just because I’m atheist. That’s just stupid.
And Christians, if you’re going to say something about the devil, then save it.
religious belief – a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny
chakra- (in yoga) any of the seven major energy centers in the body
By definition, the belief in chakra is NOT a religious belief
“Glee” you need to learn how to COMPREHEND what you’re reading BEFORE you make yourself look like a complete ass. I didn’t say that the concept of chakra was scientific, I merely said that concept of ENGERY was scientific. I was saying that the notion of chakra may not be too far off since the core of it relates to a scientifically proven subject. Nor did I say that I believe in chakra. I just was curious about how other atheist see this subject.
And to call the idea “horsesh*t” or a myth is not very scientific is it? The one thing that’s always stressed is that almost everything in science is just a theory. Nothing is for certain. A well accepted theory can be unproven today or tomorrow. Before you write something off, remember that if everything was written off before given a chance then we wouldn’t be where we are today.
I swear, people like you are the reason why atheist have a bad way of it.
