In response to Deepak Chopra’s Atheists’ Mistake: Liberal Spirituality

By Michel-Camille Bordeau……
In his most recent article famed spiritual author Deepak Chopra expressed his concern that “By making belief in God their enemy… atheists deprive themselves of what spirituality is really about: a process of inner growth.” The short article is a blog-jab in Christopher Hitchens direction, a response to a recent letter he wrote for the annual convention of atheists, and, by ‘atheists’, Mr Chopra implies those who think-believe in the manner of outspoken Christopher Hitchens. Though, like any self-respecting minority, Atheists have plenty of reasons and sufficient rights to question majority opinions like those expressed by Mr. Chopra, assuming that every Atheist sees Humanity with Hitchens’ eyes is somewhat reductive, although very flattering, considering the man’s achievements.
