Create Your Own Religion is a call to arms—an open invitation to question all the values, beliefs, and worldviews that humanity has so far held as sacred in order to find the answers we need to the very practical problems facing us.

Writer, philosopher, and professor of comparative religion, Daniele Bolelli, leads the reader through three thousand years of mythology, misogyny, misinformation, and the flat-out lies about “revealed truth” that continue to muddle our ability to live a peaceful life, free of guilt and shame and the ultimate fear of death.” [via]

 

The email announcement about this book from Red Wheel Weiser was sent with both the provocative subject line “Avoid the Pitfalls of Blind Faith” and tag line of “Ditch the Dogma and Create your Own Spiritual Blueprint.”

I’m reminded of a paraphrase of the K & C of one’s HGA as becoming the priest of one’s own religion. This may appeal to those with a general interest in open source spirituality and open source religion, such as the Open Source Order of the Golden Dawn; and, also, perhaps, those people who would be attracted to Rev Ivan Stang’s Cult Creation and Management focus in his Maybe Logic Academy course SubGenius Initiation.
