Harry The Librarian, the Library Director of a series of Public Libraries, founded the Church of Gold in 1975. Geocities made it possible for him to bring it on the internet in 1996. It is a SANCTUARY for Atheists and Materialists, and for all who comprehend that this life, on this planet, is real and sacred and holy. This is the only life YOU will ever live.
My life and yours are the highest values that ever will exist for us. Your desire to live deserves at least the same amount of protection, respect and dignity as are offered to the so-called "higher values" of believers who minimize or deny the reality and supremacy of this life on Earth.
Do not lose your awareness that your time is your life. THIS IS IT! Harry wrote five years ago, "Do not let the hype of the approaching millenium frighten you into accepting any more mysticism. MYSTICISM COLLAPSE!" Now that Y2K has proved a non-event, the irrationalists will have to come up with "new" prognostications.
Reason, the rational use of your own mind, is your ownly hope. (Your own and only hope!) We need to think about our actions, both before and after acting, and be willing to learn from mistakes.
Atheists and free thinkers are the most at-risk minority (we are each a minority of one!) in this world today.
In the Church of Gold, the gods are in the pews! The dance of life our only "service."
The love of life makes any rational man a conscious, as well as a conscientious, "objector" - and objectivist!
Live long (forever!) and Prosper.
How can I express my gratitude to Geocities for the opportunity to share my church? THANK YOU!
