Mythicist Milwaukee researches and educates the freethought community about the parallels between religion and mythology, introducing the idea that many figures of antiquity – including pagan gods and major biblical characters – are myths.
Mythicist Milwaukee aims to create a community of educated freethinkers who support and share the mythicist position with the greater freethought and skeptic communities around the world. We believe the information we uncover and share will help to legitimize the theory that religious figures of antiquity did not actually exist, but were created by man (1) to teach valuable lessons and (2) as a means of exercising social control over a group of people.
We will provide our communities with the knowledge they need to help fight for the rights of others – stolen by mythological religious views currently taught as fact.
We believe in:
- Equal rights for women and children
- Elimination of religiously-based laws
- Religious pluralism and the separation of church and state
- Ethnic equality
- LGBTQ equality
We strive to contribute to a world free from religious oppression and religious bigotry.
