Let us let go of the bickering and sling throwing.
Let us identify ourselves with an enlightened, caring group.
Let us find the real ‘how’ and ‘why’ for being an exemplary person.
Let us build something fantastic.
If we were not placed here by a deity, then how exactly did we get here? Did two rocks just bang together and suddenly start blinking their eyes? The answer to this is profound and alludes to something very subtle—but very real. Something to build from.
Self organization, chaos theory, complexity & emergence, evolution, anthropology and psychology are telling us that life follows a direction, a pattern—an order. And the most ‘meaningful’ life is the one that adheres to and/or shapes that order.
This group explores and questions the foundations of the new philosophy Orderism: critical thinking, the examined life, mindful awareness, the existence of meaning, and the ‘Direction of Life’ (order).

Orderism is a non-theistic philosophy of life. An “acolsophy”. A world view, with a morality derived from it. This acolsophy aims to supplant religion with a culture of sanity, and reason.
Fine, you’re a godless non-believer. You’re a lone wolf, a freeeee thinker... Now what? The problem is that no one can tell what your values and goals may be. They may seem to parallel the majority, but secretly opposite or strange to what the religious majority is thinking. Who knows -to a theist, you may be an outwardly very decent person.

Orderism is a philosophy that seeks to give concrete, logical and fulfilling reasons to be a morally good person (including a definition of good). A 2nd degree Orderist can say unquestionably “I am a good person, AND I can prove it”.
The axioms of Orderism are: The Direction of Life, The Examined Life, Awareness, A “Soul” (not the walking talking ghost thing).
This philosophy I’m going to share with you has made a huge impact on my life already. I woke up, I became sane.
I meet a lot of people in their homes in my career. On occasion some of them will question me on religion. It's important for me to remain tactful -but I don't want to lie and pander to them. …Continue
