Plans for a religion

Postby Dan~ » Tue Dec 20, 2016 12:36 am

I want to spend my inheritance, when i get it, in the far future, upon a bunch of small interconnected houses.
I will find and invite people to live there. It will be on dad's farm land, so no rent issues.
We will have gardens and self-supplied organic foods.

The religion of Canada is freedom of choice.
So I must accept that first.
Next, I try to share my beliefs if it can help someone out.

What is to prevent it from becoming merely a group of randomly believing households?
How does "religion" fit into your plan?
Clarify, Verify, Instill, and Reinforce the Perception of Hopes and Threats unto Anentropic Harmony :)

From THIS age of sleep, Homo-sapien shall never awake.

The Wise gather together to help one another in EVERY aspect of living.

You are always more insecure than you think, just not by what you think.
The only absolute certainty is formed by the absolute lack of alternatives.
It is not merely "do what works", but "to accomplish what purpose in what time frame at what cost".
As long as the authority is secretive, the population will be subjugated.

Amid the lack of certainty, put faith in the wiser to believe.
Devil's Motto: Make it look good, safe, innocent, and wise.. until it is too late to choose otherwise.

The Real God ≡ The reason/cause for the Universe being what it is = "The situation cannot be what it is and also remain as it is".

I was hoping we would share similar paradigms and beliefs.
I think unity and virtue is more important than beliefs in general.

:text-yeahthat:

And when you call it a "plan for a religion", do you mean you intend to spawn a new following that will catch on like wildfire? Something that will one day be held up among the great ones: Christianity, Buddhism, Shintoism, Taoism, etc.?

I live only a few hours from you (last I checked). I might be willing to convert if I can live there rent free.

I can only make the houses once i have enough money, from inheritance.

A United Community of Virtue. From what little you've said about this venture, it sounds charming, Dan. I'll be discussing this with Joker.
I AM OFFICIALLY IN HELL!

I live my philosophy, it's personal to me and people who engage where I live establish an unspoken dynamic, a relationship of sorts, with me and my philosophy.

If you make the leader of this cult, I will make up a religion they will be eager to follow.

Also, stupid shit usually happens to people who spend their inheretance without planning or wisdom. I know someone who actually was worse off and more in debt After they spent their inheretence.

Imagine winning the lotto, and somehow you are in debt more than before.

I was thinking maybe donations, and the friends come to camp there, and we cook vegeterian food.
The camping is to make more access to people beyond the small house cluster.
I like your idea.

A Frame Homes have always been a favorite of mine. I'd actually like to build it with the sheet metal roof, a bedroom loft, create lots of stained glass windows, and a stone fireplace. Solar panels and a vertical wind turbine too.

You like? One massive deck could connect all the homes together with an enormous, stonewalled firepit for community gatherings. I know, I need to stop.

Take a lesson from Trump...

Explicate .. and they will come.

Definitely go with whatever works.. and whatever works for you. MM's a-frame teepee-esque house idea is beautiful yet practical.. would let in a tonne of light and sun heat.

I like your idea too Dan~ ;)

I have nothing against visiting the Canadian wilderness however. Dan can play the banjo around a campfire while me and Mongoose roast some marshmallows.

Actually I was thinking maybe just bumming members from buddhism.
And also atheists are welcome.
The ideal of people living together and being freinds is more important than a religion.

Dad and Andrew don't like my idea at all.
They are ok with andrew spending his spare money on beer and weed.
Buying a new car or stuffing animals you've shot.
But when it comes to a commune, giving things to others,
that is some kind of a crime.

These humans are foolish and I won't let that stop my plans.
It's only a matter of time until I set something up.
