This web site marks the
founding of the gnostic mystery religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of
the Lumière Infinie - 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 Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of
the Way of the Lumière Infinie 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."

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 coöperation. Coöperation 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.
