The First Post. I suppose I should say something about what I’m trying to do with this blog.
This blog is dedicated to the proposition that it is possible – and desirable – to have sane, meaningful, intelligent conversations about religion and spirituality. Any flames, rants, rudeness or other nastiness will be deleted. Opinions should begin with “In my opinion,” rather than being stated as universal truths. “Facts” should be supported by citations.
I am foolishly attempting to begin a sane conversation on religion and spirituality (globally-speaking), hoping that something enlightening and useful will come out of it. I am hoping to extract what is hopeful and useful from these conversations, and synthesize them into something approaching a … universal theology? Anti-theology? Theologies? We’ll see.
