I go under many labels, sbnr is one of those. I define myself as a "spiritual atheist" more than any other label. I am not bothered if some think I am more of an agnostic and choose to call me that....it will not bother me. What I say "tomay-to" another may say "tomah-to". It is almost defining the same thing, just under different labels.
Spiritual touches more on the soul than on the doctrines. Spiritual tells me I am willing to listen to various religious teachings to learn something about myself, to understand the world and the way it "thinks", rather than being dismissive of other teachings that I may not agree with. Religious, to me, means I might be more dismissive of other religions' teachings, and that isn't who I am.
