soloism

Definition: Soloism is the belief that every person has a religion, that a person's religion is the sum of the person's beliefs and philosophy, and that because no two people can have exactly the same beliefs and philosophy, no two people can have exactly the same religion.

____________

The term "soloism" was created in 1984 by an individual who wished to have a word to describe the belief that no two people have exactly the same religion. Just as no two snowflakes are exactly alike and no two fingerprints are identical, soloism proposes that the same is true of religion and philosophy, and that no two persons can share identical beliefs.

It is hoped that the concept of soloism can contribute to the improvement of peace in the world. The urge to fight because of our religious differences may subside as we come to realize that we each have a unique religion.
