I think that's a very generous interpretation. I didn't get any of that from the post.

However perhaps the poster could come back and explain...

This is true.
It would be going over often crossed old ground.
It doesn't change what is and what isn't.

I think you have 'faith' or 'belief' confused with 'religion'.



At least what I think of as religion.


Though given recent posts, apparently football is religion, so what do I know?

Right. What is if you don't mind me asking? Might help us to understand better where you are coming from. So far I'm finding your posts a bit difficult to understand.

Then again, I'm not even sure there is a common understanding or agreement about what intuition actually is. When I have a sense about something, is that intuition? Personally, I don't ever claim I have intuition. I say I have a sense about something, or that my "gut" is telling me one thing or another. Same thing?
A psychic that I used to occasionally visit said that intuition is your spirit guide talking to you.

That is my problem, not always.

'Faith' is not correct Greek biblical definition. Real definition makes Gnosticism correct.

I think intuition means that some people are better at reading social and environmental cues than others. They are more tuned in to the world around them. An extension of instinct.
I think some people may be more tuned in to factors that others are not.
For example when a was a very small child I remember having a fear of almost all men, even some men I knew well. I've never been abused or anything like that. I eventually I grew out of it. I think fears like that are innate and practical. I think intuition is an extension of those sort of innate responses as well as learned experiences.

Okay I'm going to leave this conversation here. There are already too many wires crossed.



I've already been through what religion means in this thread.
But suffice the say that religion had it's own definition and its not what you describe in your previous post.
Have a great day.
