Which god, by the way?

Philip, you are ever so naughty.. (tongue-in-cheek)

The point here is in my not very humble opinion (I keep trying) that the feeling reported was in all probability real.

It is well-known that singing loudly causes a rather pleasant sensation due to an increase in oxygen intake. Especially when singing along to a group (such as in church) this can be very uplifting.

During deep meditation I sometimes have this feeling of interconnectedness, oneness, harmony.. This is a very real feeling.

Believers of all kinds often make the mistake of attributing anything nice to their deity of choice. Bad stuff usually is caused by our sins.

This is in and off itself not necessarily bad. However, it is extremely important to hold in mind who does the attributing. We do that ourselves.

My question to miso soup addict would be: "Why is it that you attribute your feelings to God? Which god, by the way?"
