Love the funnel analogy, Gretscho. I've heard said that in life you give up your dreams one by one until there's nothing left.

Daz, will look at the Dennett link when I get home and not incurring roaming fees. I've seen a vid of him ... definitely in the new breed of rationalist philosophy.

Reggae, I don't see religion as intrinsic to this discussion apart from its intersection with philosophy ... reality keeps doing its thing no matter what speculative supernatural beliefs we hold.

Having said that I'm just back from seeing the Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica and I can imagine those places producing an amazing vibe if not for the maddening crowds. Spiritual? I don't know but they are easily the most artistic places I've seen in my life so that level of dedication and inspiration are super special.
