refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to
their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of
philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a
rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality

spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are

operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
