Church of Humanity, dedicated to Human Well Being....sounds good to me.

I think a religion of people who just want to create a better culture and a safer environment would be a great thing. But if won't happen as long as most of the human race perfers to believe in mythological promises.

Fred,

I hadn't thought about Trekkies and the like, but exactly the same principle.

Kurt Vonnegutt played with this concept in Slapstick. People were randomly assigned to "families" named after flowers. If you were in the Rose family, you could go anywhere in the world and find other Roses to hang out with... lol!

I like this. I don't think there is anything wrong with creating a mythology to live by... as long as you know it is mythology and you don't use your mythology to harm others.

I mentioned on another thread that Marines and Bikers have "codes to live by" and these codes are unquestionably intentional mythologies.


Oooooo... My new religion is called "Intentional Mythology"

As long as no one offers kool aid or decides we need to go up and ride the comet. A mass suicide pack of only three would just be embarrassing. I am also too old for 72 virgins so I refuse to be a suicide bomber either.

I have never been a member of a religion this big before.
