A Church I May Have To Join
The Church of Reality has been granted tax exempt status, now they are officially a church:
Welcome to the Church of Reality. Welcome to the Real World. That's our church greeting. And thank you for taking the time to visit our web site.(from boingboing)
The Church of Reality is a religion based on the practice of Realism, believing in everything that is real. Our motto is, "If it's real, we believe in it." Since no one knows all of reality, the Church of Reality is about the pursuit of reality the way it really is. We commit to being intellectually honest with ourselves and with others so that we can cut through the mythology. We want to know about the way things really are in the real world.
The Church of Reality provides a religious identity for people who have made a personal commitment in their lives to pursue reality the way it really is. The pursuit of reality is something that is a shared process. It's something we do together as a church, as a community, and as the human race.
