Too many religious groups promote guilt and fear while working against science and medical advances. Too many religions oppress women, abuse children, and vilify all who disagree. Religions insist that their adherents have faith without evidence, and that leads people into evil behavior.
Far superior is a religion based on real life instead of blind faith, one that encourages confident living, compassionate fellowship, and creative exploration of the magnificent complexity of the cosmos. That is a robust religion, one that does not need a sacrosanct guide book or fabricated gods.
Our aim is to reveal false beliefs, consigning them to their shameful role in history. Our goal is to develop principles that will generate a religion for the real world, eliminating the hateful and destructive and encouraging the good in us, the creative, the courageous, and the compassionate.
