    God Is Reality

    I didn't know such a word existed until a few days ago!  I have forever tried to convey my ideas to other people, who never understood.  I didn't know there was a word for my idea!  This is so exciting.  I no longer have to describe everything.  I ...

    Nature encourages diversity.

    A diverse population is better able to survive a change in the environment because it is more likely to possess individuals that are suited to the change. Diversity in people is also encouraged by nature. We are all so beautifully different! Our diverse traits should be...

    At Least I Might Be, It's Something That Interests Me

     Until about a year and a half ago I'd never heard of pantheism. My entire life I've thought of myself as an atheist, and I still do, but never felt that I quite fit in with most other atheists. When I read about pantheism it struck me that there are other people who share a...

    My Understanding Of The True Nature Of The Universe.

    The Universe is a mind, in the middle of thinking a thought. It's thought about a Sun rising is not an electro-chemical or electrical model buzzing within a brain or circuit.... It's thought about a Sun rising is an actual Sun rising. It's thought of an Earth turning is the Earth...

    Where We Come From And Where We Will End

    While we believe we are apart from things while we have a more defined form this is not the case. We are made of the earth we walk upon and the sun shining down upon us. We are merely a reconfiguration of this matter/energy. Walking on top of ourselves. Our consciousness is no...

    I just want to get some good conversation going.

    What are your thoughts on the origin of everything? I personally believe that everything simply was, is, and will be. No definite beginning or end. No one really needs to know for sure anyway right? Aren't we all simply tiny and insignificant compared to the unparalleled and...

    I do not believe in deity, I believe in Divinity. There is no conscious being making decisions, or pulling our strings. We lay out our own path. We are all connected through Divine energy. This energy isn't our creator, rather it came into being the moment creation happened...

    What Is a Pantheist?

    I tend to agree with this Wikipedia definition of; Pantheism is the view that everything is of an all-encompassing immanent abstract God; or that the Universe, or nature, and God are equivalent. I also agree with the World Pantheist Movement; Our beliefs and values reconcile...

    What Is Pantheism?

    Pantheism is belief that all things are God and God is in everything and everyone.  I don't really believe in "God" per se, but I do believe that the universal energy is at the core of everything that happens on this earth, with people, with animals, and with plants.  I...

    Why Not?

    Since the world has decided to so neatly divide themselves between Theism, Deism, Pantheism and Atheism. I guess I fall into this category. I do not see the need to label myself a pantheist though. It is not a religion, it is a belief. I do not claim it is fact either, I made...

    You don't need to believe in a god to believe

    that there is something bigger and grander than us. The universe is (almost) incomprehensibly vast and mysterious. I can't think of anything more beautiful.
