After 8 years I believe I've cracked the code for Open Source Religion.
Hi everyone, I run a website called OpenSourceReligion.net and recently published my Discourse on Open Source Religion here: http://www.opensourcereligion.net/profiles/blogs/a-discourse-on-open-source-religion
I started evolving this idea years ago and didn't do much with it at that time except to talk to people about it and post in a lot of forums for critique. There were a lot of issues with the idea back then, hurdles that kept it from entirely making sense to me. But after many years of polish I do believe I have the working prototype for Open Source Religion.
The working definition:
Open Source Religion is the global phenomena in which multiple beliefs (eg: salvation and karma) from both religions and personal beliefs are utilized within an individual.
I'm aiming to create a website that allows people to explore their own OSR. I've got some very well thought out ideas on this but don't have the skillset (coding) or funding to get it done. I do save money time to time and hire a coder here and there but the process has been taking forever.
Anyway, take a look if you like and feel free to ask me anything about it.
EDIT: For some reason, it seems the TED forums are glitched for me, as I am unable to respond to anything in this discussion anymore! I can sometimes reply in other discussions but not this one. Beats me but I'll keep trying. :(
