What is Faith Wiki?[edit]

Faith Wiki encompasses all religions, faiths, and creeds. It is a collection of religious texts, history, facts, beliefs, and notable people (leaders, martyrs, etc.).

Who would use it?[edit]

Anyone wishing to study world religions. This would include the lay person, clergy, and theolgians.

Why is it needed?[edit]

It is difficult to find accurate, unbiased information on world religions. Even though there is much information available, it is quite often biased towards or against the religion in question.

Why should Meta-Wiki host Faith Wiki?[edit]

Every person on the face of the earth has some form of belief, whether they be an athiest, Unitarian, agnostic, Roman Catholic, Shinto, or Jainist. Meta-Wiki would be providing free accurate knowledge to a vast amount of people. This would educate people and encourage harmony between peoples as they understand each other better.

Details[edit]

The wiki would organised by root form:

   * Agnosticism
   * Animism
   * Atheism
         o Geotheism
         o Hylotheism
         o Mechanotheism
         o Technotheism
   * Ditheism (Dualism)
   * Entheogen
   * Henotheism
         o Monolatrism
   * Humanism
         o Secular Humanism
   * Kathenotheism
   * Maltheism
   * Monism
   * Monotheism
         o Buddhism/Shakyamunism
         o Christianity
         o Hinduism
         o Islam
         o Judaism
   * Panentheism
   * Pantheism
         o Cosmotheism
   * Polytheism
         oWiccan
   * Shamanism
   * Suitheism
   * Syncretic


It would then be subcatagorised accordingly, each entry would have sections for history, sacred texts, etc.

Brainstorm[edit]

How does one go about setting up a Wiki Site? I was thinking "Wikitheism.com an unbiased faith database site."

I would be happy to set it up as a collaborative effort if other people are interested in helping.

Mike Kappel[edit]

I own Wikitheism.com & Wikitheism.org and I would be happy to use them for this.
