Church of Reality to downgrade America

Dear Church of Reality members,

This country has become mindnumbingly stupid. We are on a course of self destruction. The most powerful country on the planet has adopted government by hostage taking – and you and I are the hostages.

If you think it was ugly a few weeks ago it’s going to be far worse in November. And I’m not sure what I can do aboutit. I’m thinking about issuing a “downgrade” and issue a warning that self destruction is not a good idea. If we are to remain a member of reality, we have to continue to exist.

Personally I think that the problems we have can be solved. But there’s only one way to do that. We are going to have to become smarter, and we are going to have to realize that it’s going to be a lot of work and it’s going to take some time. There are no easy solutions. However, this might be an opportunity to turn the world towards reality. Humanity needs to have a more positive relationship with reality if we are going to continue to exist.

So – I’m looking for a plan. But the first thing we need to do is to become reality evangelists. (please don’t be offended) We need to talk about reality. We need to use the word over and over because every time you say “Reality” the world gets a little smarter.

Someone needs to do this and that someone is us. We have to inject Reality into the conversation. We have to make the discussion about Reality. We need to insist that Reality is the most important thing in the world and that we has humans have to commit ourselves to continue to be a part of it. We need to resist the Path of Extinction and choose existence instead.

We as humans in many ways operates as a single mind. We have a collective consciousness that continues to evolve. When it comes to technology humans have a good relationship with reality. That’s why we have all this cool technology, know the age of the universe, and can cut organs out of one person and implant them into someone else. But once you get outside the world of the geek humanity’s relationship is on thin ice, and we have to change that.

In order to do that we have to move the mind of humanity towards reality. I personally believe that the argument for the understanding of reality is the strongest argument out there and can win on it’s own merits. So in that sense we have the advantage.

The bottom line is that humanity is in denial. We as a race are in denial, and we are tinkering with the edge of self destruction. We are moving away from reality and we need to turn around and collectively embrace it. We, as Realists, no longer have a lot of time to allow this direction to continue. Quite frankly, it’s getting kind of scary out there in an objective way. We have to say no to the advancement of insanity. It is up to us to make reality important to the human race.

I’m looking for ideas. In the mean time – post this email everywhere. Every person on Earth needs to know the Realist are coming. Thanks in advance for spreading the word.
