What is OSR?
Open Source Religion (OSR) is the practice of mixing religious and non-religious beliefs in an individual, even across multiple religions.
Our community aims to share, learn from, and edit our beliefs to better ourselves. Join us to define and refine the practice of OSR together.
It is possible that God exists, it is also possible that God does not exist.If God exists and one believes in God. then one receives an infinitely great reward. If he does not exist, then one loses little or nothing!If one does not believe in God and he does exist, then one receives an infinitely terrible punishment, if he does not exist, then one gains little or nothing?The question is... What is the wiser belief?The other question is.... Why would God care if one believes in her or not?佛度有缘人Read More
People now understand that religious labels are not suitable for understanding individuals. More and more we will see people refusing to identify with a label. To identify with a label is to invite being wrongly stereotyped, and we have had our fill of that.There are open-source tools being developed right now that will address this issue head on. Very soon if you ask someone what their religion is, you'd better really be curious, because if they are using a tool like …Read More
Photon and Matter = Life and Death.=.Why is connection between Photon and Matter equal toconnection between Life and Death ?My explanation.QED try to understand the interaction between photon and matter. In 1985 Richard Feynman wrote the result of QED's searching :‘ The idea of book - the interaction between light( electromagnetic fields ) and matter is strange.. . . . . . . . . . . The theory of quantum electrodynamicsdescribes Nature as absurd from the point of viewof common sense.…Read More
From my perspective whenever someone says "I have no religion", this means there is not a specific named sect they exclusively identify with. In this sense, I too have no religion.. However, I know this may sound strange but I consider myself rather religious.I tend to think a religious person is someone who tries to become more disciplined in order to better live up to their idea of the "greater good" (anyone know a metaphor for that?). A religious person has decided it's better for the most…Read More
This is a throwback to a theme that used to be central to this discussion forum when it was entitled "Redefine God", It might be fun to make a list of the proposed definitions that have been presented so far to compare them.Read More
The mind seeks answers to questions, understanding, orientation, and knowledge. But, it is less interested in truth. What is “known” may not be true. But the mind doesn’t care as long as it fills in the blanks of the unknown with an answer, any answer. Most answers are plausible. They can seem to make logical sense, as long as you accept whatever built-in assumptions there are that create the logic. But, the assumption itself is a bias. Most people don’t know what they assume to be true,…Read More
The Beast RevelationThis letter is dedicated to all Christians.The following letter is a summary of Revelation 13. Its purpose is to show the method used in finding the conclusions which have been stated. Nothing new has been added from my previous letters. It is more of a compilation of them all. This writing is the same material in different words. The Bible uses this same method of explanation. There are four Gospels. In each you see a different view of the same material. This can be…Read More
The more I've thought about it, the more opportunities I see with making the switch.But first, let me assuage any fears by stating that Ning is giving us over a year to make this switch. So while we will lose a lot of older discussions, we can still focus on switching over the newer ones and the belief modules.And besides, with as much of an up and down history as this site has, a new beginning sounds quite refreshing. Did you know we're still operating this site using the ning.redefinegod.com…Read More
Synchronicity is a concept defined by Carl Jung to explain coincidences of a psychologically significant nature. He proposed that there is an principle of connection that works outside of the system of cause and effect and draws together symbols and events in a way that can be profoundly meaningful and healing to the individual that experiences them.Working from this concept I have begun thinking about my own spirituality in terms of multi-layered, embedded realities, basically the same…Read More
