The online community for scientific pantheists
This community is a great complement or alternative to Facebook. Conversations on group or forum topics stay in place permanently. The mood is more respectful, friendly, and personal. Trolling is rare.
Please don't be deterred if a conversation seems stagnant - a new message anywhere will show up in Latest Activity and draw attention. Please avoid feuds or political arguments.
Please support or join World Pantheism so we can keep this unique Community open. It costs $60 per month to keep this open. We encourage people to join the WPM. Members here get the Nautilus symbol* on their profile image. They can join member-only groups and propose new groups or discussions. From the WPM website they also get other benefits such as the right to celebrate weddings & funerals, access to archives of our classic magazine Pan and of all our major discussion groups since 1998.
* If you are or become a WPM member and have no Nautilus, please contact the World Pantheism ID and we will add the Nautilus.
