FACTS Membership Drive
FACTS is currently embarking upon our first annual membership
drive. Although we are significantly hamstrung in the United States -
since we refuse to use coins and currency for church-associated
activities when those monetary instruments declare a religious ideology
that is directly contrary to that which we believe - we are still able
to sign up members online.
Basically, we are a religious organization
that finds the evidence of any supernatural being to be woefully
inadequate. Thus, we deny the existence of any God, and feel that those
who have reached the contrary conclusion are deeply misguided. We find
that adhering to a religious philosophy based on truth and real
evidence is exhilarating, and opens avenues for understanding,
cooperation, inquiry and love that are often blocked by religions views
based on artificial and false claims. Our faithis in truth, data, reason and the inherent good of mankind.
Like many other religions, we believe in
"The Golden Rule," and we try to help those less fortunate than
ourselves. Additionally - contrary to the notion of commandments (which
we find quite offensive) - we have three suggestions: (1) Question, (2)
Be Honest, and (3) Do What's Right. Those who embrace these suggestions
attain the status of Grand Lubitz.
At present, FACTS
is mostly an internet religion, although we are having congregational
meetings every new moon in Sacramento, California (where the Church
originated). We like to think of those meetings as celebrations ...
times to have fun, while simultaneously pondering some of the "deeper"
issues of life. With FACTS religious garb, a FACTS libation, and a
closing FACTS hymn, we encourage FACTS parishioners to start their own
local congregations. There are no mandatory tithes or fees, and
attendance is always voluntary. We recommend, however, that FACTS
Church meetings be designed so as to give pleasure and enlightenment,
so that attendance each "moonth" is eagerly anticipated as a time
for joy, rather than being in any manner a duty or an obligation.
