What can be said about almost all human beings is that they
do not demand answers to the deepest questions nor success
and goodness to the highest level. - Michael Armstrong

The pen is mightier than the sword. - Bulwer-Lytton

But the question to be asked, is it mighty enough?

The site attempts to deal with most of the important information and issues that confront us as human beings. Consequently, there is a lot of material on this site, all of which except for a few fun items is adjudged to be important and worthwhile. Naturally some of the material is of greater importance than some other, and of course this evaluation of importance would vary from person to person according to where they are and what their current needs may be. Here are the salient points to help keep things in perspective:

  • The creator of this site has with the highest priority endeavored, striven even, to make the thinking and material intellectually and spiritually responsible, i.e., by focusing on the relevant issues, letting sound philosophical, sound psychological principles and sound science educate, influence, and constrain the logic and reasoning that are reflected.

  • The material in this site is not being written or presented from a "neutral" position like that of an arbiter in a dispute or a chairman conducting a debate, but from one who has his own "skin in the game", from the perspective that we NEED there to be a God WORTHY of the term.

  • One overriding rationale for the site is that our thinking about God needs to be demystified, and for certain important aspects of clarity needs to be decoupled from the term "Creator".

  • Another major rationale for the site is that with modern communicational technology—radio, television, and now the internet with widespread access to both uploading and downloading—the total number of philosophical and religious ideas and variations is exploding, and yet there is no corresponding increase in dealing with the real issues and no increase in clarity.

  • The site has become a challenge to ALL extant religious thinking and represents a "starting over." It takes a radically different approach from religious tradition to defining God, because God HITHERTO has been defined in terms of the following seven different aspects, with none nor all together being adequate:
    1) Pre-ordinate, pre-existent, infinite, eternal terms. Infinite is meaningless outside of being a useful mental, mathematical construct like zero, and the other aspects may be necessary but except for eternal are not particularly relevant.
    2) Power, control, and invulnerability.
    God CANNOT properly be defined by power and control because power is neither good nor evil but a neutral thing and can be used either appropriately or abused. Generally anything but self control is not good and any other kind of control is a bad thing without freely given consent, and especially if it is heavy handed or misapplied. Power and control need to be set aside initially in our approach to defining God.
    3) Originator, creator and designer.  These are issues that pertain to a creator, but a creator is not necessarily a God. A creator can be either good or bad, or neutral and non-involved.
    4) Parent, father and provider. Our experience in the "human condition" makes a mockery of a wholesome parent-child relationship. Any body that lives in this world can readily attest that something is woefully lacking here!
    5) Mystical, vague and indefinite terms. Are
    we are supposed to be impressed by ineffability? Of course, to do this is the very opposite of DEFINING God.
    6) Smarmy, maudlin terms. Often it is said that "God is Love"! Those that define God in this way usually think that settles everything, but they themselves have no adequate definition of love.
    7) Terms of being transcendent, ordinate and superior. These may be aspects of an overlord, dictator, ruler, or boss, but Godhood is something other than what these describe.
    Therefore, God cannot reasonably be defined by anything other than by having the ideal and mature human character, purpose, and values.

  • Being  a challenge to previous thinking,this site proposes that the world's religions—including Christendom—are fundamentally MISGUIDED in the way that they think about, relate to, and treat God, and do so in contrast to the Revelation of God.

  • The site takes a radically different approach from religious tradition to learning the truth about God, because hitherto God has been presented through mythologies encoded in what are considered to be sacred writings. Consequently there is a huge amount of ancient mythology material on the site showing the development of planet worship and myth-based concepts of God that so very severely affect even modern theology even in the most advanced forms of Christianity.

  • The site posits that we can only understand the Originator first of all by understanding ourselves, and his needs and desires by seeing and understanding our own, and that furthermore, there is nothing about God that is mystical or that cannot be understood to the same degree that we can understand any other human being.

  • The site posits that the Revelation of God was purposed for this understanding, and is a clarification and confirmation of the above. For Christendom, Jesus is currently FRAMED as God by the Old Testament Law and the Prophets, and this approach, although traditional, is invalid. The proper FRAMING for the life and message of Jesus would be the "human condition" and the ultimate issues, and then letting knowledge of ancient culture and thinking educate us to lesser issues like exegesis and translation.

  • The site claims that this radical approach has not been taken before and yet is the ONLY proper one, and that WHEN taken will engender a spiritual reawakening.

  • The site posits that taking this approach will render a different and proper understanding of "The Good News", a good news that is FAR BETTER than what has been explicated by formal religion so far.

  • The site proposes that taking this approach will inaugurate a great and desperately needed resolution of the human condition.

  • Most importantly, one major premise is that we should NOT be waiting for God; God is waiting for us!

  • Even though the world is seemingly at its darkest hour, the site proposes that these positive developments are now under way and are imminent
