Welcome to Earthly Religion, the Internet presence of God’s Goods, a humanistic, naturalistic, deistic religion.
This religion does not expect you to believe in God, the Bible, or any particular religious authority. Rather, it places faith in our human prerogatives and abilities, our earth’s interrelated system of life, and the natural laws which allow security, ability, freedom, and ultimate meaning.
Both non-believers and believers are welcome here. The emphasis isn’t on believing; it’s on being and behaving, living well with yourself, each other, and life on earth.
The attention here is on the earthly. Supernatural speculations and possibilities are interesting but diverting. Our religious responsibility and opportunity is found in these bodies on this earth.
While we take our religious perspective and work seriously, we don’t want it to be stuffy. Too often, religions are alien to the human condition rather than affirming of it. We lean more towards the fun and sexy, natural and lively, human and humane.
Look through the essays, editorials, sermons, reviews, and blogs. You’ll find pertinent, provocative thinking towards a free, ethical, and healthy way of life. You may respond and participate. All sincere input is welcome; spam and hateful rants are trashed. As this site gains attention, participation, and contributions, it will grow to include and serve many worthy causes.
With your participation and support I will be more able to develop and apply the core ideas and values found here.

Thanks for taking time to meet with me this afternoon. I enjoyed our conversation and our connection. As an Aikidoist, embodied spirituality is a particular interest of mine, and I appreciate your words here.
Also, FYI, your Facebook page links your website to earthlyreligion.org, which took me to a non-page, though I was able to find you with a quick Google search for earthly religion.
Thanks, David. Just saw your posting. I’ll have to check on the link, for I’m paying for all three names (.com .org and .net) and they should feed into the actual one.
