Welcome to Age of Inquiry, a community site dedicated to the free and open discussion of ideas, whether about religion, politics, social issues or anything else that you feel strongly about.
The world is a big place, and our population grows by many millions each day. With so many people, who have so many differing points of view, there are bound to be conflicts, often over things that could be avoided if only we had a better understanding of the other side’s point of view.
The advent of the internet and ease of communication is quickly making the world more and more of a global community, and this provides a great opportunity – free access to information and ideas means that we can better learn from others, share ideas, and discuss what’s important to us.
It is my hope that the more we discuss and debate topics, the more we will learn from each other. When I was first setting up the site, I wanted to create my own blog where I can write my own opinions, but I quickly decided that I want those with opposing points of view to be able to participate as well. I want a chance to change their minds, and give them the same opportunity.
On Age of Inquiry, there is no ideology or belief that is promoted above others. All members have equal opportunity to have their opinions heard, even if I disagree with them.
The way I see it, none of us can be right about everything all the time. There would surely be arguments that I use that are based on faulty reasoning, so I try to identify those as much as possible. Because of this, I don’t try to silence or hide from criticism of my own beliefs, I welcome it.
In this way, articles written in Age of Inquiry would become an ongoing conversation. I hope that when I submit an article, I can use the comments and articles written in reply as a learning experience, helping to inspire and improve further articles.
With a collective desire to make the world a better place, and the power that the internet provides to foster global communication, we are able to get this conversation started. Let us begin a new age of communication, discussion and debate - the Age of Inquiry.
