Since there's been an influx of people from LJ, figured I'd throw this out there.

[community profile] paranormal


It's a community centered on the paranormal, from ghosts to ufos to everything inbetween. I've been a bad mod and it's sat stagnant for two years while I haven't really been journaling, but I'd like to get the ball rolling with it again.

Also looking for co-mods to help me this time around, since I was too stubborn when I decided to open it. If you're interested, send me a PM.

I've been a fan of Chrisopher Penczak's books on Paganism and magick since I first discovered a copy of City Magick at The Edge of the Circle in Seattle back in 2001 or thereabouts, and for years I've been wanting a study partner or group to go through his Temple series with. The influx of new people into Dreamwidth sounds like an excellent time to go about looking for other interested folks, so I've created a community and a couple of interest-gauging posts for study groups over at [community profile] penczak. If you've any interest, please drop in and check it out!

Since I'm laid up with a bum ankle, I figure...

Into ghost hunting? Find yourself fascinated by UFOs, aliens, and BEKs? Can't get enough of urban legends with a hint of truth in them?

[community profile] paranormal is a place to indulge in all of that. It's been dead for quite a while, since I haven't logged into DW in ages, but since I'm making this place my journaling home, I'd like to see it get a new influx of life.

Hi!  This is a promo of a new community, [community profile] writing_religion .  This is a research community for authors (original fiction, fanfiction, nonfiction) to ask questions about religious or spiritual subjects.  It is not a debate forum, and I'm going to be really picky about not letting anyone use it to try to convert people.  It is strictly meant as a research community.

I understand that these days, anytime someone sets up a community with the word "religion" anywhere near it, people freak out.  As the mod, let me just say that the kind of people who cause that type of reaction probably tick me off more than they do you, because they often enough do so while claiming to do my job. 

Please take a look at my icon.  Some of you might recognize it as Christopher Eccleston, playing the ninth incarnation of the Doctor from Doctor Who.  You might also know that the Doctor's character is a strict agnostic, and that Eccleston himself is a pretty enthusiastic atheist.  The Doctor is also a really big fan of research, and libraries, and knowledge.  I chose this icon carefully for this announcement.  This community is not about what you believe, or not- it is about asking questions about what people do and have believed, and what they have said and done about it through the centuries.  This is a research community, meant to help people write with accuracy and, perhaps, a little camaraderie.

So, authors, welcome!  I hope to see you there!

Hello, I'm the moderator of two communities that I'm trying to jumpstart. The first was [community profile] buddhists, a community for people practicing, studying or interested in Buddhism. I made a couple posts in hopes of getting some interaction going on, but nothing has happened yet. Anyone is allowed to join. The community will be largely unmoderated and uncensored, as long as the entries vaguely relate to Buddhism.

My goal for the Buddhists community is to have people asks questions about Buddhism, share their thoughts or practice, share Buddhist quotes and images, which includes art and icons. I'd be delighted to have more people join and get a dialogue going. Introduction posts are highly welcome and probably will be for quite a while. I'll continue to post an entry every once in a while myself.

My second community is dedicated to Carl Sagan ([community profile] carlsagan), my favorite popular science author. He's been an inspiration to me since I was five, when I saw Cosmos on PBS. My goal for this community is to have a place for Carl Sagan fans to not only discuss Carl Sagan's life, books and TV series Cosmos, but issues that were important to him. This includes, but is not limited to, extraterrestrials, SETI, life on other planets, astronomy, science, philosophy and history and how they relate to or impact the pursuit of science, evolution, science outreach in the community, education, religion and its impact on the pursuit of science, etc.

I'm hoping that the Carl Sagan community will be very successful because I think the potential for a lot of interesting and thought-provoking discussion exists. I have a few posts in mind that I'm hoping will get lots of input and feedback. If you're a fan of Carl Sagan and would like to subscribe or join, I'd love to see an introduction post hearing about your coming know his work and what has inspired you the most about his life. People who disagree with Carl Sagan are also welcome to join, but I expect that the discussion be respectful. :)

I hope I've described the communities well enough for an introduction. Feel free to ask questions. Anyone can join. Let's have fun!
