At its most basic, Omnism is a faith arrived at individually by each believer. Most began as members of other religions, growing dissatisfied with the pat answers offered to difficult questions, particularly when those answers conflicted with scientific evidence or common sense. In an effort to find better answers, they studied other religions, and arrived at the conclusion that is the heart of Omnism:
All religions are true in part,none in totality, Omnism included.

For years, I have explored many Spiritual paths and have never really been comfortable in claiming any of them for my own. In each one I have explored, I have found the seed of truth, but never felt that one single path contained the whole truth. Then I began to glean from each path those parts that rang true and cobbled them into one path. I began to wonder if I was the only one that was doing this. Then I hit the Internet.
The Internet is a wealth of information of all sorts and is populated by a wide variety of people. If you look hard enough and long enough, you soon find someone that has been thinking the same things you have. That was the case when I stumbled across Omnism.com.
Kate and Bob, who run the site, have given a good overview of what Omnism is. The only shame is it hasn’t been updated since 2003. If you want to learn more about Omnism, I’d highly recommend heading over to the website and checking it out.
In the near future, I plan to expand on a few ideas that Kate and Bob began exploring on their site. But for now, if you have always thought that there was a sliver of truth in all faiths, consider exploring Omnism. You won’t be disappointed.
