Let's Talk Religion

Feel free to discuss openly any topics related to religion and to agnostic and atheistic perspectives. All positions and topics are open. I would like to learn about religious issues, non Western religions, ancient religions, and atheistic and agnostic positions.

Of course questions about faith and non faith are encouraged as well.

It would be great for me personally to learn from discussions about the diversity of beliefs and non belief.

April 12, 2012 update: When you join the group you are also invited to add pictures to the Group Picture gallery. I try periodically to rotate through the gallery to change the group profile picture, to reflect the various insights of group members. I think it is fun.
