"The Pantheist World View” was first published in 1979 to provide a concise and succinct five page summary of the basic vision of life shared by most Pantheists. It was one of the first...

Pantheists are persons who derive their fundamental religious experience through their personal relationship with the Universe. They feel that Nature is the ultimate context for human existence, and seek to improve their relationship with the natural world as their fundamental religious responsibility. In universal pantheism, religion is seen as a system of reverent behavior toward the Earth rather than subscription to a particular creed. Because Pantheists identify God with Nature rather than an anthropomorphic being, Pantheists oppose the arrogant world-view of anthropocentrism.< Less

More > Giuliani On September 2, 2010, the Universal Pantheist Society lost its co-founder Derham Giuliani, who served as our President from about 1977 to the present. A quintessential "desert rat," Derham Giuliani rejected all "indoor philosophy" and spent most of his time in the great outdoors. An accomplished field biologist, Derham’s life was focused on an intense fascination in wild creatures and their behavior. He balanced the scientific study of nature with a profoundly spiritual view of the world. Derham wrote: "The word 'pantheist' is the nearest label I've found so far for my behavior in the world. I find a strong spiritual aspect to the world, inaccessible by strict scientific methods."< Less

Why? In Christianity and numerous other faiths, adherents follow the teachings of charismatic leaders. In Pantheism, everyone is the 'leader' of their own religion, frequently self-discovered from feeling a sense of divinity in Nature (many persons are at first unaware that there is a name for their self-discovery). Adherents of Pantheism spread across the spectrum, some in the center of a category, others at some point in between. (see diagram)< Less

More > by Michael Murphy What Pantheism Means to Me by Members of the Society Pantheist Viewpoints (misc. author quotes) Announcing our Zazzle Store Excerpts: The differences between Pantheism and Atheism are few with one very important element. Pantheism holds reverence for the Natural world, where Atheism does not. Pantheism contends that the Cosmos - All That Exists - deserves our reverence, our respect, our "awe". Pantheists know that it is not required of them by the Existence to revere It, but it is their desire to show veneration to that from which they came.
