Stop by anytime after 6pm MST (8pm EST) to share your candle, or share others candles in video chat.Please post condolences here: R.I.P. JacksterSee More
"So, what do you mean when you say real.. and can you define try and get while you are at it. And what do you mean by you all and screwed?
You really leave too much room for inference here. As a favor to us less…"
"I would only pick Mormonism because it is the one I understand. On the other hand, they are 18, legally adult and smarter than an eight year old. and more likely to remain curious enough to ask questions even if they do join."
If you are interested in Buddhist teachings, may I suggest " Every day Zen" by the late Charlotte Joko Beck. This one really opened my eye's. The other one I am particularly fond of is "Inner Revolution"…"

A group existed just for Atheists, and one can be both an agnostic and an atheist. However I thought it would be nice to have a group just for the Agnostics/Ignostics. Agnostic-atheists are free to join here too, as are deists, pandeists, etc.

Come and enjoy some family time with like minded exmos! We are having a pot-luck style picnic. Feel free to bring any sports equipment/toys that your family would like.

I am going to scout the area in the next couple weeks to find the perfect spot to meet up and eat, and I'll add that in ASAP.We have blended…See More
Former Mormon---and former Utahn. Living in Eugene Oregon with Wife and three kids. I am interested in the continuous dance between the individual and Religion and the outcomes of the interaction.
I am happily on the fence concerning the existence of supernatural beings, Deities, Buddhas, fairies unicorns etc. If asked whether god exists I will answer 'maybe'
My current Religious practice includes bowing before a statue, giving the statue oatmeal and coffee in the morning, sitting on a little cushion and staring at a wall, most importantly trying to live well in the world without causing my self or others pain.
Interests and Hobbies:
Hiking, playing with my kids, cycling, talking to my spouse, cooking for eating and for fun, long road trips, flapping my jaw with others about philosophy specifically Buddhist, and other religious philosophy. Swing dancing, Bluegrass and folk festivals.
The Dharma bums, Another Roadside Attraction, Jitterbug Perfume,Skinny Legs and All, The Electric Kool-aid Acid Test, One Flew Over the Cuckoos nest, Howl and other Poems, Big Sky Mind, The Dhamapada,Ecclesiastes, Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff, Middlesex, The Master and Marguerita, Generation X, anything by Michael Chabon.
