Our Tenets

Here is a list of what we believe. Or at least, what we believe right now, as things can change. That is the main difference between religion and atheism: we change our beliefs based on new evidence. People of faith do not change their faith, even in the face of evidence.
This list is by no means exhaustive. You have read some of the thoughts on other pages, so this list is an extension of some of that thinking. If you disagree with any of them, feel free to email us.

  1. Every one of us is free to believe anything they want.
  2. People will object to these Perspectives. Understand why.
  3. Understand that whatever is written here, someone will disagree with it.
  4. The only absolute is that there will be disagreement. This is not wrong.
  5. Understand that there is no need for judgment. We will all judge each other though. It’s inevitable.
  6. YOU are responsible for your own actions, your own decisions.
  7. There is no such thing as luck, fate, karma etc. Only an understanding of how you got there and a responsibility for your actions to that point.
  8. Everyone is equal.
  9. Understand that I am not better than you. You are not better than me, but understand why I might think I am.
  10. There is no truth. There is only perception of truth.
  11. Understanding that we are entitled to our own beliefs shows great understanding. That is the  only aim of this Perspective.
  12. Do not force your own beliefs on people.
  13. There is nothing to follow. That’s what religions encourage.
  14. There are no gods. They were a construction of our intellect.
  15. There is no need to worship. What are you really worshiping anyway?
  16. No religion has got it right thus far but many religious teachings have merit in themselves. Understand the message.
  17. No-one needs “saving”. We have done nothing wrong.
  18. There is no “force” into which we can all tap.
  19. With a full understanding of what there is, we will eventually realise we are simply part of the machine.
  20. We are animals. We evolved quite naturally and not by chance.
  21. If we can do it, it’s natural. Our intellects make it so. Being part of Nature confirms this.
  22. Events do not happen for a reason, there is only cause and effect.
  23. Teach children reasoned debate. Philosophise with them. Give them the tools early on to develop their own understanding.
  24. Understand the meaning of the above and consider yourself Included.
