Will I Iose my atheist cred if I dabbIe in tantra?



  1. No way.
    And aren’t ‘dabble’ and ‘tantra’ somewhat at odds with each other?
    I mean, there’s a reason why Sting only puts out a new album every 5 years or so.

  2. Ahh Tantra…no no I don’t think you would lose you atheist cred at all. After all you can…benefit from the sexual wisdom of Tantra, without adopting its pantheon. I think everyone should learn at least a little about it

  3. Not even if you become Buddhist.
    I recently found that Buddhists don’t believe in God.
    It is all about recognizing the self.
    both are about leaving the physical body, and recognizing your soul, but not God.

  4. Atheist simply means no god. Some will say so, but it doesn’t go against the meaning of the word. My atheist boyfriend does rune divination (with great results), and enjoys watching me do magick and loves my Book of Shadows. He also believes in ghosts (although, like me, he is very skeptical of individual cases), magick and witchcraft, and of course, divination. He doesn’t believe in any god, so he is still atheist. An atheist can meditate, be a Buddhist or a Unitarian Universalist, and believe in things that would be considered supernatural.
    The book and movie The Haunting (of Hill House) has a great way of explaining it: There are things that we call supernatural simply because science has not YET explained them, but they are not related to a god.
    But be prepared for the Anti-theist crowd to mock you and call you stupid.
