We're all here together and have to make the best of this existence. It might be all there is. I found Beliefnet the way most have: the Belief-O-Matic. Although by no means a perfect assessment of one's faith, the quiz motivated me to learn more about the faiths near the top of my results.
I grew up Catholic but started asking too many "big" questions that were missing good answers. I found a belief system that works for me and allows me the freedom to practice alone and explore without adhering to a rigid and outdated dogma. I've met a lot of intelligent and compassionate people here, particularly when it comes to asking the big questions. I've enjoyed my short time at Beliefnet and hope to gain more knowledge and insight in the future thanks to this great community.
