Hey, Bill's an atheist. Here is a great article about atheism and spirituality. http://atheism.about.com/od/atheismquestions/a/Spirituality.htm
PS I'm christian. This is my fav site,http://www.religioustolerance.org/statbelief.htm
and I've linked to the site's statement of beliefs. Look at website's staff.
"We are a multi-faith group. As of 2010-FEB, we consist of one Atheist, Agnostic, Christian, Wiccan and Zen Buddhist.
Thus, the OCRT staff lack agreement on almost all theological matters, such as belief in a supreme being, the nature of God, interpretation of the Bible and other holy texts, whether life after death exists, what form the afterlife may take, etc.
We do believe:
In the inherent worth of every person. People are worthy of respect, support, and caring simply because they are human. Unfortunately, we have not reached a consensus on when human life, in the form of an ovum and spermatozoon, becomes a human person. On this matter, our lack of agreement on when personhood begins mirrors that of society at large.
In working towards a culture that is relatively free of discrimination on the basis of gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, physical disability, age, body shape, etc.
In the sanctity of the human person. We oppose the use of torture and cruel or unusual punishment including the death penalty. 1
In the importance of democracy within religious, political and other structures.
In the separation of religion and state; and the freedoms of speech, association, and expression. 2
That the systems of truth that we have studied on the topics of morals, ethics, and religious belief are often considered absolute within various religions and secular belief systems. However, they are obviously relative because they vary greatly by culture, by religion, and over time. 3
In the generally positive influence that most religions have had on their followers and on society. 4
In the importance of individual believers determining evil influences and policies that currently exist within their chosen faith group, and strongly advocating for their correction. If change is impossible, they should consider withholding financial support or leaving the group.
In the importance of education. We believe that people are not truly educated unless they have studied the world's major religions and ethical systems. They need to learn of both the good and evil impacts that each has had on society. 5"
