From an interview with a former New Ager who converted to the Catholic faith. How many of you have noticed as she says, that over the past few years especially, "spiritual" is used more and more by people when describing themselves.

Question: What do people mean when they say, "I'm not religious, but I'm very spiritual?"?

Answer: "Spiritual" seems to be one of the trendy catch words coming out of the New Age movement, because New Agers never say, "I'm of this faith" or "that faith". What they say is, "I'm spiritual" because the New Age movement came from the spiritualist movement. The spiritualist movement was a big movement in America around the turn of the century, with people like Madam Blavatsky. This all came from the time when people started believing in Darwinism. We didn't need God anymore. Now people are saying that they are "spiritual." We don't need any religious truth or religious facts, because we can make up our own gods again.
