Why is religion and spirituality lumped together? Religion and spirituality should have their own categories.

Just like evolution should be in the science category and not in the religion category.

I would say that God and religion are 2 different things

@Axeroberts No, God is religion and religion is about God. The two serve mankind and help in the development aand progression of humanity.

Is written in scripture you must serve God and spirit and in truth. God our Father is a spiritual being and as Jesus said no man (flesh body) has ever seen him, except the Son of Man who is Yeshua / Jesus himself.

Religion is the belief ..... Spirituality is beliefs are concerned of the soul. And you never really have one without the other.

@SDavis The two beliefs coincide with each other because you can't have one without the other. Man's religions are divided and seperated and have names of the individuals that originated them, such as Lutheren . Or they have been named as a particular brand of religion, ie.. Catholic, Protestant, Seven Day Adventist, ect.

Spiritual belief comes as a means of understanding that a higher being exist which guides mankind and the univerese. In fact religion rules that entire universe. Religion is what created the entire universe. Mankind has take religion out of context and distored it and made it a tool for his own selfish purpose. Religion was to serve as a means to understanding the universe, life, God, and man's purpose for existing.

The two serve mankind with a single purpose and that is to help mankind grow, progress, and develope into spiritual beings combinded with flesh (matter) and spirit in order to help in the development of the ideal world.

@raysid498950247 I wondered why you wanted to give me a lecture on spiritual and religion - I had to reread my comment and there was an error with the word _ it should have been 'you *never* really have one without the other - which I must correct.

Is why I said you must serve God in *spirit* and in truth -meaning spiritually.

@SDavis So Sorry for the lecture, it was my intent to answer the basic of that mistake. Thanks for correcting me and yourself. I beleive we are on the same wavelength. Thanks

Religion and spirituality do have their own sections right under the combination. But you have a fair point about evolution.
@NerdyPotato The location of categories is a problem here. For example, if you want to discuss constellations (other than zodiac) and planets in astronomy, it’s tied to astrology category/religion section.

I also brought up evolution to an administrator. He put it there intentionally to make conflicting conversations.

@NerdyPotato The law of evolution waas created by the Creator. To help matter to change and transform in order to survive in the conditions it had to live in. All living things are subject to the law of evolution. That is why the same variety of species of life are different in different areas of the world.
@raysid498950247 if you're religious, you can put all science, nature and human interaction under religion. But the categorization goes beyond religion.
I know a ton of religious people who I would not call spiritual at all.

@robingoodfellow Spirituality is not akin to personality or behavior. It is something we all are endowed with. Each human being has a spirit, it is just some are allowing themselves to be more spiritual than others. Those people who do not use their spiritual content to be a part of their lives are just more materially guided than spirtiually motivated
