As for terminology, I tend to view myself as spiritual but not religious. However, this is my view of the words as I think "religious" would paint too strong a picture to some people. At the same time, I don't think I would be completely remiss in describing myself as religious.

I agree with this completely.

Atheism.....from what I have come to understand..... is a belief in NO kind of higher power....in NO divine spirit or force.  Perhaps agnostic would be the better word.  But then, when I think to the little we know about true paganism from back in the day..... was it much more than what you have described?  Simply a reverence and connection to the Earth, the Seasons, the Cycles, and all that Nature has given to us? 

I am a bit confused Ryan....though it may simply be the early morning and lack of sleep.  Why would you have to come to terms with something that involves your faith?
