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.
Hi, I'm new to the OSR network, but I have recently become involved in Yoism, an open-source religion set up in the 1990s. I was initially put off Yoism by the in-your-face nature of the website, but I was intrigued and started looking into it. In the end I was convinced enough to set up my own website YoismUK to bring it to a wider audience.Do any of you contribute to building one of the existing OSRs? If so, which one? I have only ever really heard of Yoism, but I'm guessing there must be…Read More

Hi all. For those who don't know, Ning.com is the reason we have this site. Unfortunately Ning has become notorious throughout the years for making horrible decisions.

When I first signed up with them they were free and PROMISED to always be free. That then…Read More

Well, the surveillance state is already here according to the collective will of our democratic processes - this, all under the guise of protecting citizens like…Read More
The greatest danger to this country may be extremist Christians who believe they are anointed by god to control the government.There is no reasoning with people who are incapable of recognizing there are different approaches to governing America other than extremist Christianity, because in order to reason, they must understand that others have different viewpoints that are not bible-based.It is nearly impossible to deal with Christian fanatics and it is why they are so dangerous with their…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
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
