We thought long and hard about the types of discussions that occur here, and we've decided that it's difficult to disallow, or ignore, the importance and implications of these types of discourse. Especially in the face of all that's going on around the world. These types of discussions, in our opinion, are both necessary and very relevant.
God & Country - This forum will be the home for discussions surrounding Religion, Politics, and Government. General systems of faith, ethics, and morals.
All of these things surround a faith upon or within specific systems and the separation and discourse that comes from them.
Spirituality & Mysticism - This forum will the container for all that is not of the above. ;) Essentially we recognize that there is a way about things that is difficult if not impossible to measure or even define. While this may branch into more formal systems of religion, it in and of itself is not religious in nature. It's the other. The ether. The unseen. The thing that binds and connects us all.
We believe that these new areas of discussion will open up the doors for many, and we feel that fit within the community and have a place at our table. So pull up a chair and start flappin, I'm sure you all have LOTS to talk about. :)
