"The leap of faith is really a very ordinary
operation. We take it every time we fall in love,
expect kindness from someone in return for
a good deed, impulsively sacrifice some little piece of our
self-interest." - Lee Siegel
"My faith is

shimmering blaze of the desert sun. The heat lies on me like lead.
Thirst torments me, I dare not think how unendingly long my way is, and
above all, I see nothing in front of me."

It may come as a surprise to
many students of the Bible that in the original Hebrew text the body of water
the Israelites crossed when leaving Egypt is called yam suph, Sea
of Reeds, not Red Sea (Ex 15:4, 22; Dt 11:4; Jos 2:10; 4:23; 24:6; Neh
9:9; Ps 106:7, 9, 33; 136:13, 15).
Unfortunately, yam suph has
been rendered Red Sea in nearly all of translations, the Jerusalem
Bible and the New Jewish Publication Society Hebrew Bible being notable
The Red Sea phrase came into the account with
the third century BC translation of the Old Testament into Greek.
Septuagint translators made yam suph (Sea of Reeds)
into eruthrá thálasse (Red Sea).
Latin Vulgate followed their lead with mari Rubro (Red Sea)
and most English versions continued that tradition.
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This 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 the Lumière Infinie - 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 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."
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.
