The Double Triangle: Secular Alternatives to Religion

70 pages33 minutes


The Double Triangle shows how each of us is a genetic, intellectual and cultural gateway between a vast past and an expansive future. It is a positive symbol for a secular outlook in which original thought is the most sacred act of humanity. This series of ten short essays, accompanied by original artwork, expounds a novel view of the world and each individual's place in it. The essays explore three underpinning ideas: the unknowablity of ultimate truth, randomness as a builder of structure and a driver of change in the world and in our lives, and the implications of the Double Triangle for our ideas and for our afterlives.

This work expands on ideas first expressed by Aleron Zemplin in his book An Accidental God: The Evolution of Religion, or How a Boy from the Dawn of Civilization Became the God of Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
