You can always either feel happy or sad with no apparent reason in spite of intuition.

Exactly. True intuition has no emotion attached to it. It's just information and knowing something that you aren't quite sure how you know logically.

Since were assuming intuition is spiritually guided - does that mean only people who subscribe to the correct faith feel it? That people who don't believe in anything (aka myself) never experience it?

7 billion people...can we take a poll and find out what religion is right (based on the number of people experiencing dead on intiuition) and get rid of all the wrong religions (whose members show less accurate intuition)?

"We" aren't assuming that. I am sure some people believe it is spiritually guided and some feel that it can be explained scientifically.

But thanks for the sarcasm. It always keeps things interesting.

Have you ever experienced anything that some might define as intuition? There are probably similar words, or alternative words that can be used. None come to my mind right now.

It does keep thing s interesting as much as the meaningful differences of various talents and backgrounds. There is the phenomenon and there is the noumenon.

There is the intuition for all logical beings then. That's all.

I don't think intuition (that gut feeling) can be explained. It's like faith that way.
