Orderism

Orderism is a non-theistic philosophy of life, an "acolsophy".  Simple science and reasoning gives us the reason to be morally good and optimistic.

Why do people do "bad" things?  What is "good" or "bad"?  Is there a real purpose and meaning to this life? What reasons are there to be a good person -other than just staying out of jail?  

There are strong logical answers to these questions that will make a big impact on your life.

Join the order!

This group is a testing ground of ideas before sharing Orderism with the rest of the world.  Feel free to debate and poke holes before the book and site come out.

What is Orderism?

Orderism is a non-theistic philosophy of life. An “acolsophy”. A world view, with a morality derived from it.  This acolsophy aims to supplant religion with a culture of sanity, and reason.

Fine, you’re a godless non-believer.  You’re a lone wolf, a freeeee thinker... Now what?  The problem is that no one can tell what your values and goals may be. They may seem to parallel the majority, but secretly opposite or strange to what the religious majority is thinking. Who knows -to a theist, you may be an outwardly very decent person. You may make it all the way to being president of the United States.  Only then to greedily rub your hands together and push the button, starting your personal world war.  

Now that’s an ugly and unfounded exaggeration, but it illustrates a point.  The 90% of the world’s population is going to grimace at your godless point of view because so far it’s not really saying anything.

Orderism is a philosophy that seeks to give concrete, logical and fulfilling reasons to be a morally good person (including a definition of good).  A 2nd degree Orderist can say unquestionably “I am a good person, AND I can prove it”.

The axioms of Orderism are: The Direction of Life, The Examined Life, Awareness, A “Soul” (not the walking talking ghost thing).


This philosophy I’m going to share with you has made a huge impact on my life already.  I woke up, I became sane.

Can you stop a hardnose religious person dead in their tracks?

I meet a lot of people in their homes in my career. On occasion some of them will question me on religion.  It's important for me to remain tactful -but I don't want to lie and pander to them. …Continue

Thank you Steph.  I write a lot -but I'm not a writer.  It will be interesting to see the thoughts of others.  I know there are some very smart, critical people on this site.
