Can an atheist be spiritual too?

ATHEIST - someone who does not believe in a God – any God – not just the Christian one. But that does not mean they do not hold strong moral or religious beliefs! They can follow any religion that does not have a god and there are a lot of those!
Like BUDDHISM – Religious teaching from Buddha and his followers that by destroying greed, hatred and delusion (the cause of all suffering) man can attain perfect enlightenment!
Where do you think Christianity got it's ideas of a soul and afterlife from for goodness sake?
They stole it from the pagan tribes and peoples which existed hundreds and thousands of years before Christianity!
From the stone age through Vikings, Egyptians, Maoris, Aborigines, American Indians and especially the Chinese, they all had elaborate funerals and grave goods to speed the soul into the next life with comfort!

Atheists don't believe any gods exist. That has nothing to do with spirituality.

A day when Paganism is world wide and christianity and islam and judaism become extinct and atheists convert into pagans. Paganism means just western freedoms you like the media you like farm food and you like crop food you like pets you like sexy people you like science nature and technology you like the gods will save you after you die and judge you in the after life you like vegetarianism and veganism and equality for living things.

As long as it doesn't involve the belief in gods, they can be and do anything.

They were created in the image of God.
Therefore they are "spiritual too."
They just like that other spirit better so much fun and many things to do! :)

That's why the category is religion AND spirituality.

Yes, if they believe in spirits but not a god. I think this is the case for at least some forms of Buddhism.
