A Bad Good Man: Wayne Dyer Example
What is the secular story?
Truth is outside of a religious story.
This story holds that there is an unbiased truth called the
scientific method that is measured applying mathematics.
This truth is free of the prejudices and violence identified with
the religious alpha and omega stories.
The measure of educational success within a secular society is
derived from the number of engineers, math, and science graduates.
Their belief is that through science consumption for all is
Happiness for science is derived from the ease of life that is
All human problems have a scientific solution.
Education in science and math is critical for the success of a
Science and math will increase our life spans.

Science and math are said to be fair and impartial to everyone.

Some would view the secular

E-mail sent to Wayne Dyer
Dr. Dyer has spent the last several years learning and teaching
I saw his presentation on PBS in August 2007 where I interpreted

During the breaks and within Dr. Dyer's talk he was assisting and
supporting giving money to PBS in a very vigorous way.
As part of his support he suggested to viewers that they could only
find his Taoist program on PBS.
He also spent a great deal of time supporting his friend a singer
within his program.

professed but not consistently held is short term and not as
powerful as one that extends to all aspects of our life.
Billions of us hold temporary ideologies with great conviction that
may be disconnected from our real story.
