PostSubject: William Luther Pierce   Tue Oct 14, 2008 2:38 pm

I came across this on wikipedia.
Quote :
William Luther Pierce III (September 11, 1933 July 23, 2002) was the leader of the white separatist National Alliance organization, and a principal ideologue of the white nationalist movement. First educated as a physicist, he later worked with George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party. He achieved notoriety as the author of a novel, The Turner Diaries (1978), written under the pseudonym Andrew Macdonald. He founded a religion he called Cosmotheism, which was an admixture of panentheism, White Nationalism and separatist world-views.

Pierce adopted Cosmotheism as his religion in 1978. In effect it is a form of panendeism, or a impersonal panentheism, or a belief that an impersonal God is the animating force within the universe. Moreover, Pierce's salutation of the "life principle" adumbrates the Greek Logos, his own professed agnosticism and his atheism regarding a Personal God notwithstanding.

Cosmotheism asserts that "all is within God and God is within all." It considers the nature of reality and of existence to be mutable and destined to co-evolve towards a complete "universal consciousness," or godhood. Cosmos means an orderly and harmonious universe and thus the divine is tantamount to reality and consciousness, an inseparable part of an orderly, harmonious, and whole universal system.

In his speech "Our Cause", Pierce said:
    "All we require is that you share with us a commitment to the simple, but great, truth which I have explained to you here, that you understand that you are a part of the whole, which is the creator, that you understand that your purpose, the purpose of mankind and the purpose of every other part of creation, is the creator's purpose, that this purpose is the never-ending ascent of the path of creation, the path of life symbolized by our life rune, that you understand that this path leads ever upward toward the creator's self-realization, and that the destiny of those who follow this path is godhood."

Pierce described his form of panendeism as being based on "[t]he idea of an evolutionary universe with an evolution toward ever higher and higher states of self-consciousness."

This guy might not be the first person I'd put on a pamphlet promoting Panendeism but it's interesting anyway. Shocked

Wow, what a racist he is.

Personally, I'm hoping God manifested himself to him in the afterworld as a black jew. That'd be neat!
