Can't We Just All Get Along Dice
The Can't We Just All Get Along Dice are a pair of dice with the twelve major religions and belief systems on their sides.
As an amateur student of comparative religion, I've often noted that if I'd been born in another geographic location or in another culture, my religion would have been chosen for me by my circumstances. The same is true for most on this planet. It all seems to be based upon luck, someone's master plan or the roll of the dice.
With the upsurge of religious intolerance in this century, I’ve often asked, like many others, the simple question of why we can’t all just get along. It seems that at their basis most of the major religions hold the same beliefs. I’ve created the Can’t We Just All Get Along Dice as a device to stimulate thought and conversation about the relative merits of the major belief systems. These dice could be used in any game that would examine these concepts.
The dice have a symbol of the major religions and the twelfth is the atheist symbol. In random order the first die represents the Shinto religion of Japan, Islam, the Native American Medicine Wheel, Taoism, the Baha’i faith, and the Atheist symbol. The second die has Christianity, Wicca, Judaism, the Sikhism, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Many other worthy religions were left out. I chose the largest in size of adherents and a couple I threw in because they were cool.
The funds for this project will go to the manufacture and distribution of these dice. The dice in the video are all digital models and do not exist yet except in my own imagination.
