The Declaration of Omnifundatoresism

[ English | Nihongo ]

We, the Society for Monotheism, hold up the aim to make the proposition "all religions are fiction" the common sense of mankind. In other words, our aim is to produce the world in which the number of humans who are possessed with the idea that each religion which each of them believes is truth is close to zero extremely.

Now, why we think that it is desirable that the proposition "all religions are fiction" becomes the common sense of mankind? The reason for this is that we think, "the humans who are possessed with the idea that a religion which each of them believes is truth are in a kind of enslavement in which they are deprived some liberty, and this is unsound condition."

But we do not aim to exterminate belief to religion, whatever it may be. The reason for this is that in beliefs to religions there are not only unsound ones but also sound ones. The believer who does not have consciousness that the religion which he or she believes is fiction is unsound, but the believer who has it and believes the religion is not unsound. What we aim to exterminate are unsound beliefs only.

It is not what we need to reach our target to say to the human who is possessed with the idea that some religion is truth, "the religion which you believe is also fiction." Even if we advise so, the advice will be ignored or objected. In any case, he or she will be not awoken to the fact. Therefore, even if we assert the proposition "all religions are fiction," the day at which it becomes common sense will not come forever. To make it the common sense we need some roundabout method.

The one which can expect the effect the most in the roundabout methods to make the proposition "all religions are fiction" common sense is to increase religious diversity. Religious diversity means degree how diverse religions exist.

Let us suppose that a certain person is possessed with the idea that the religion which he or she believes is truth. If the people who he or she meets frequently are also possessed with the idea that the same religion is truth, there is no room that his or her recognition changes. In contrast, if religious diversity of the people whom a certain person meets frequently is high sufficiently, he or she will reach the recognition that many religions exist in the world and the religion which he or she believes is one of them. This recognition is the tiny first step to reach the recognition that the religion which he or she believes is fiction.

Then, what should we do to increase religious diversity? The one of which priority is the highest in necessary things for it is to create new many religions. The important thing in that case is that to create an innovative religion which is not similar to existing religions is more desirable than to create a religion which is practically same as existing religions. The reason for this is that a concept of religious diversity is degree which is proportional to distance which is based on similarity.

Let us suppose that there are two humans and they believe different religions. And let us suppose that there are two humans who are different from them and also believe different religions. Can we say that the religious diversity among the first two humans is equal to one among the second two humans? What is needed to say it is that the distance of similarity among religions which the first two humans believe must be equal to the distance of similarity among religions which the second two humans believe. This is the meaning of the remark that a concept of religious diversity is degree which is proportional to distance which is based on similarity.

A human who creates some religion is called "a founder of a religion." If a founder creates some religion and people believe it, the religious diversity will increase by it. But the number of religions which one founder can create within his lifetime is much fewer than the number which we need to reach our target. Therefore, what we must tackle is to produce massive founders. But it is not easy to change a human which is not a founder into a founder. The reason for this is that many of humans who are not founders have the recognition that only special humans can become founders.

But the recognition that only special humans can become founders of religions is a wrong preconception. The reason for this is that what to need for a human to create some religion is only ability to think rationally and all humans is given this ability. What we must do to produce massive founders is to sweep away this wrong preconception.

Everyone can become a founder of a religion. We call this proposition "omnifundatoresism," and believe firmly that it is true. What we must do is to address to the people who think that only special humans can make religion "You also can make religion."
