No, I do not believe in the spirit world, and I will probably never agree with anything Wendy spews out of her mouth - but there is nothing wrong with seeing nature as something divinely inspired. I mean, there's a whole category of religious zeal based on that premise - the religious naturalists - the pagans - the pantheists, the pandeists, the panentheists, and the panendeists. I do not feel religious when I explain my religion to people, I feel like I am trying to get people to understand my point of view. There are things in nature that aren't technically alive but can die, like stars, black holes, and maybe the Universe itself. So what is wrong with thinking that they could be alive in some way? I will not cave into spiritual superstitions or to secular nihilism.

That gap between what you believe about God and/or the Gods "in your head" and that which you are able to demonstrate that all reasonable/rational men and women are obligated to believe in turn.
Or, sure, you can argue that God and/or the Gods created the part "in our head" so that all it is ever necessary to believe is that you do believe it.
And that makes it true. For you, in other words. Then it becomes necessary for those who do not believe to demonstrate to you that God and/or the Gods doesn't/don't exist.
And then with any luck you can take this consoling and comforting frame of mind with you all the way to the grave.
I sure wish I could.
