The hallmark of the modern revival:
"I know some of you are going to disagree with
this. Don't you even stop to disagree. Revelation 12:5. If you disagree, just
file it in `miscellaneous' and check it out. And don't bother with it; when we
get to heaven we'll check it
out and you'll find out I'm right" -
When any type of social grouping needs to
slowly alter the beliefs and thoughts of a target group, they can effectively
do this without harming or alarming the members of the target group, without
incurring legal penalties while being supported and funded by those very people
whom they seek to enslave!

website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its
author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside
personal experience has forged 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 a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life
- a rational 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 mass 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.
