There are many people, even some atheists, who feel that humans are instinctively drawn to the spiritual .Nonsense
Once we, like the soaring eagle must have lived as one with the universe, responding obediently, unthinkingly to eternal stimuli.
But now that our manipulative minds are working overtime, those carefree days look good to us and we understandably wish we could return to those days of innocence. Nothing spiritual about this.
Awe, on the under hand, best reflects our present fascination with this very real, very physical universe.
Again, nothing whatever spiritual about it.
