The Book of Continuing Creation by J. X. Mason presents a new Way of Living that is based on Nature, Reason, Science, and factual history. Miracles and myths are gone, except for the miracle of ongoing creation itself — simple parts joining together to emerge as new complex systems.
We undertake personal practices that lead to a moral, virtuous, fulfilled, and happy life. Our new Way or Path leaves behind the acceptance of slavery and subjugation of women found in the sacred texts of the Old Desert Religions.
We hold that no single text is sacred or fully true, and we therefore eliminate the main cause of religious strife.
The Purpose of our human lives is to contribute to Continuing Creation through our constructive involvement, while we protect the Earth and ensure human rights.
Creatures, cultures, and technologies all evolve. Our Way or Path has itself evolved from forerunners including Taoism, Deism, Humanism, Transcendentalism, and Process Theology.
From science, we draw on the disciplines of Evolution, Systems Theory, Complexity, and others. TheBook of Continuing Creation: The Growing, Organizing, Direction of the Cosmos must always be updated as new knowledge and better reasoning come to light.
The Book of Continuing Creation is a Collection of 35 Essays on the interrelated Processes of Continuing Creation and how they can provide us with Meaning and Purpose in our ethical, creative, and fulfilling lives.
