Mudheads are not very intelligent.
Long ago they
didn't know many things, even very simple, everyday actions.
So a man
tried to instruct them. He tried to
teach them how to go up a ladder.
He showed them how to do it, and they tried to copy him, but they

Then the man tried to
teach them how to build a house.
He showed them the right way
to do it, and they tried to imitate his

One sat on

Another sat underneath the chair.
Another sat on the chair with
his back to the front.
A fourth tried to sit upside down with his head
where his rump ought to have been.
They just couldn't get the point.
'Well," said their instructor,
"I will try one thing more. I am going to
show you how to copulate."
There was a
fat old woman who hadn't had a man in
her for a long time.
"They can all practice on me," she said, "I don't
So she lifted up her manta and bent over, and the
instructor copulated with her in the
simplest way - from the back as dogs do.
The Mudheads watched closely, and then they all wanted to try.
But none of them could find the right opening.

They tried and tried.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a new
religious ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the
falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of the religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational
gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith,
accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each
and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the
Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the
hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit.
The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this
web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious
beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way
condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence
that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to
control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the
world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial
military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals,
the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global
ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at
the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which
have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media
psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family
and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
