because oh right, i can ask y’all for input, sweet.
saw the phrase “atheist witch” for the first time today and it feels closer’n aught else so far. got me thinking again:
what would the word be, for someone who disbelieves in any kind of sentient god/s, but does believe in unconscious energies?
sure i’m a- -theist, but…uh…i believe in magical glue, and affecting the splitting of timelines. noooooot sciencey.
“spiritual” is abominably vague and has never conveyed what i’ve wanted. it’s too agnostic. i am definitely not agnostic.
and new age is so sharply derided without even the protection of Qualifying As Religion, plus it has particular tenets, sort of.
is there another word, not -theist but, i dunno, for not-god-but-still-supernatural? geez idk. “atheist witch” really is closer than anything else so far.
