Optihumanist Principles

David Wallace Croft


  • There is no God. There is no Heaven. There is no Hell. The supernatural does not exist. The paranormal does not exist. Authorities lie. The Scientific Method works.

  • Democracy liberates. We meet in fellowship as equals. Where there is voting, there is joint ownership and respect. We vote before using force to free the oppressed.

  • Socialism enslaves. Stealing from the rich to give to the poor is theft. Human rights and property rights are synonymous. Charity cannot be coerced. Individual rights are the only legitimately enforceable rights.

  • Our lives are our own. Abortion is a personal choice. Suicide is a personal choice. Cloning is a personal choice. Body enhancement is a personal choice. Life span is a personal choice. Personal risk is a personal choice.

  • Humans are inherently good. Humans have evolved to care for one another. Altruism is a natural instinct. Greed is not the only motivating force. We demonstrate our love by volunteering. Genocide requires dehumanization. Peace on Earth is a human effort.

  • Death is not inevitable. The mind can be preserved independent of the brain. Where the gods fail us, human technology will succeed. We will achieve salvation in this world.

  • Optihumanism is a faith-based religion. It is not a philosophy. It is not a life stance. We believe in Humanity.
