Original post could've been summed up in two short paragraphs.

In our religion everyone has equal rights no matter what race your are, what gender you are, what your sexual preferences are, or the geography of where you were born. We don't demonize others. Our view is that people are basically good and we believe in Original Virtue rather than original sin. We see ourselves as one people, one planet. We are environmentalists. We believe in personal choice and personal responsibility. We admire attributes like Curiosity. We are a people who want to know everything. We want to understand it all. We have a quest for knowledge. And not just any knowledge but about reality as it really is.

We don't know if there is some sort of grand purpose in our existence. We don't know if reality has a purpose. But it is what we don't know that makes us want to know. We are different from other religions in that it is OK for us to not know everything. We are a Humble culture because we understand that this planet is but a speck of dust in the universe. We are not a religion that has all the answers. We don't have a supernatural leader who has all the answers. We don't have an afterlife to offer people in exchange for their loyalty. Nor do we have any deities to fall back on in troubled times. We have to do the hard work for ourselves. We have to figure it out on our own. We have to make it happen. "

So. You have a religion about 5 % of the universe.
Isn't that special.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

What the Church of Reality is Not

Not Morally Superior - We don't look down our noses at the rest of the world. This planet is but a speck of dust in a galaxy of billions of stars in a universe of billions of galaxies. We exist for an instant of time. How important can we be? We are not morally superior to you, and you are not morally superior to us.

Except the first post was almost entirely about Realists looking down their noses at Atheists. Dodgy

Oh well...I suppose it wouldn't be a religion without internal contradictions.

All I'm hearing from reality-seeker is some guy in a van with candy saying "Hey I'm just like you. Want some candy ?"

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

And one more thing. I thought the church was about "what is" rather than "what is not."

Yet here we have an entire post on what the church is not. Facepalm

And now for some mysterious reason I find myself craving cured pork products...
