SCOD believes that it is possible that civilization will regress into dark ages, as it has before. It also believes that regardless of the future, we should usually prepare ourselves for the worst, while hoping for the best. We are all individuals, but can sometimes come together on occasion to achieve more than we would otherwise. Biodiversity is natural and good, and unique qualities are important even within groups that desire to cooperate towards a better life. Communal life is not for everyone, but is encouraged for those of us that desire it to various degrees.
If you believe as we do, than you may consider yourself one with SCOD.
SCOD believes we are each our own ministers of our own personal beliefs. Therefore feel free to use religious titles in the name of SCOD. Every living-being is born with the right to free-will, which includes recognizing what is ‘divine’. You may request a letter of good standing, or a certification from us if you wish to have a piece of paper to show others.
Sentient life-forms have ‘spirit energy’.
Inanimate objects have energy.
Matter is condensed energy.
