I've been kicking around this idea lately for something I am calling "axiomatic" religion. The idea, in a nutshell, is that with a few axioms you can build a religion. I should define axiom here. An axiom is a fact, law, rule, or statement that we all agree on. If we don't agree on the axioms then we can't have any meaningful dialog. Axioms are what give us a common frame of reference to communicate. Axioms help us communicate not just in the way a language or alphabet allows, but the way being a living thing, being a Human, living today in the modern world, allow. For this post I'm just going to rattle off some of the axioms I'm claiming.
