I've often felt envious of religious people because they belong to a strong network of like-minded people who, on a regular basis, come together in the community to provide each other spiritual/ emotional support. While my logic and intuition prevent me from adhering to any religion, I feel that it is important nonetheless that there be a sense of society to which agnostics like myself can belong. Non-religious people in a Judeo-Christian society like North America can easily feel anomie -that is, isolated from the community. This WebRing will unite online agnostic journalers of all ages, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds.
Before creating this webring, I searched unsuccessfully for a similar ring. There was the Atheist Journal ring, but I'm not presumptuous enough to declare myself an atheist. Atheists believe that there is no God, whereas agnostics merely question whether there is a God. The other agnostic webrings, however, consist of anti-Christians, former Christians only, and/or anarchists, so I didn't fit in there either. I wanted to develop an online community of journalers/ bloggers who may subconsciously follow some judeo-christian and perhaps eastern values and precepts, but who would never interpret any religious teachings literally. I'm not particularly looking for real flaky New Age types to join though- just tolerant, ethical, relatively rational, non-religious types.
