OUR SHARED DOCTRINE

The elements of our shared doctrine are few and succinctly expressed in the sacred vows each Reasoner makes to himself or herself:

I WILL SEEK TO KNOW;
Evasion is man's worst enemy.

I AFFIRM THAT REASON IS THE ONLY MEANS TO KNOWLEDGE;
Faith, revelation and emotion are not tools of cognition.

I WILL ATTEMPT TO ACT ON THE BASIS OF KNOWLEDGE;
Action from ignorance forfeits control of life.

I WILL NOT INITIATE FORCE OR FRAUD;
My right to life depends on my recognition of the same right in others.
