It’s tiresome to always talk about what we don’t believe. Instead, we ask what we consider to be more modest, but more interesting questions:

Rather than: Do you accept the Supreme Authority of a Book or Institution?
We ask: Do you explore science, literature, and art with an open mind?

Rather than: Do you give Exclusive Allegiance to a Unique Prophet or Savior?
We ask: Do you bring out the unique gift within yourself and others?

Rather than: Do you believe in an Absolute, a Personal God, an Immortal Soul?
We ask: Do you act for the good of humanity, including future generations?

Rather than: Do you trust in an External Purpose guiding the universe?
We ask: Do you create your own meanings and purposes with gusto?
