Best place to argue about evolution: Section 8 of CompuServe’s Religion Forum is home to an interfaith dialogue where the intelligentsia and charismatic meet to debate everything from the divinity of Jesus and the context of Paul’s writings to speaking in tongues and the right or wrong-headedness of evolutionism.

Best place to pray: Think of Prodigy’s Religion Concourse as an online prayer circle. A small group gathers in the Prayer Line area to request others’ prayers for themselves and their families and friends. Each request is met with support, concern, and hope for speedy answers to these community prayers.

Best place to spread the gospel of the Internet: Come worship the almighty processor in the Internet newsgroup alt.religion.computers. The group often split between the fundamentalist Windows users and born-again Mac disciples. If using a PC is a religious experience for you, you belong here.

Best place to meet a goddess: If your religion is woman-earth-goddess-centric, share your inner light with the members of the Internet usegroup alt.mythology. This fascinating group discusses everything from the Descent of Ishtar to the Netherworld to the influence of the goddess on modern religions.
