In creed tables, Thims creed table (LH:2) is a tabulated listing of Libb Thims' beliefs, disbeliefs, and unlearns, in respect to the core cultural tenets believed, assumed without question, or taught.

Overview

The following is Thims creed table, ordered via the date when the creed solidified in idea, discernment, note, print, letter, or verbal statement:

Type Date Description Replacement
God / Θ c.1977 At age 5 (circa) was told that when a person "dies", they go to "live" with "god", and that god lives in a gardener's shed in a park; became disillusioned with the so-called "theory of god" at this point. Chemical thermodynamics
Afterlife c.1980 At age 8 (circa), took first plane ride, and when passing through the clouds, looked for deceased relatives and people walking around [?]; but, upon seeing none, therein jettisoned afterlife theory from the mind. Continuity
(theory or equation)
Atheism 2003-
2016
  • In 2001, after broaching the formulaic solution to the chemical thermodynamic model of everything, really didn't care one way or the other about the so-called "god question", and was basically secular, or politely scientific, one might say; it was not until the drafting and researching the end chapter on "thermodynamics of religion"[1], that he was forced into an open-minded analysis of all the world's religions and mythologies.
  • In 2003, became 100% atheist, after reading Gary Greenberg's 101 Myths of the Bible, among 30-50 other RMS works, therein seeing that Abraham was a god character rescript of Ra, the Egyptian sun god; and similarly with all the other gods and characters of all the world's active religions.[2]
  • In 2005, launched the Journal of Human Thermodynamics, with the posted stipulation that the journal would not accept "god theory" and or "information theory" based articles; these, then, considered by "weeds" in the garden of thermodynamics.
  • In 2007, published Human Chemistry, wherein great god and god theory related terminology was completely avoided, albeit with great difficultly, as this term infuses so much of the language and culture of humans.
  • In 2009, commented: “I’m level 10 on the Dawkins scale; don’t like the word ‘atheist’, like ‘scientist’ better.”[3] Meaning, auto-defining as 143% atheist (on the Dawkins scale), but in the atheism-avoiding mindset, per reasons of public opprobrium (among others).
  • In 2013, tried drafting Human Chemical Thermodynamics, with but a single paragraph Laplacian-like dismissal of god as an "unneeded hypothesis"; this approach, however, quickly stalled out.
  • In 2014, in the wake of the Beg-Thims dialogue (23 Jun to 12 Sep 2014), it became apparent that a switch from "implicit atheism" (aka polite atheism) to full out and open public "explicit atheism" was paramount; after which Thims began to amass books on famous atheists, atheist bibles, the history of atheism, etc. (see: book list); started, with co-host Patrick Fergus, the Atheism Reviews YouTube Channel (11 Sep 2014)[4]
  • In 2015, Thims, with co-host Thor, taught the first public video-recorded "Atheism for Kids" (10 Aug 2015)[5] in the world; followed up by a semi-drafted Smart Atheism: for Kids book series (2016)[6], based on the class outline, but which stalled out (at the Roman recension section).[7]
Morality 2007 Believes, with Goethe (1809), that morality is defined by the "moral symbols" of physical chemistry; in 2014, devised the "flower stealing model" to explain how an atheist can explain right from wrong to children in respect to "energy" and the laws of operation of the universe.[8]
Origin of life 2009 See: defunct theory of life debate (2007 to 2013).
Good / Evil 2011 Solved this problem in terms of exergonic / endergonic "coupling theory" (Lipmann, 1941).[9] Coupling
Life 2012 “Not only do I not believe in the principle of the afterlife, but also do not believe in the principle of life” (personal note, Sep 24).[10] Abioism
Beliefs 2013-
2015
I belief in thermodynamics, periodic table, fermions, bosons, vacuum, the existence of waves (rhythms) and tides (rhyme) in universal operation, and that which is measurable” (aggregate statement).[11]
Death 2014 Models: Empedocles (445BC); “If you’re not alive, you cannot die.” / “You can’t die if you’re not alive.” (reverberating mental note, Oct 23)[10]
Soul 2017 “Not only am I an atheist (deny the existence of god), but I am also an asoulist (deny the existence of the soul), an achristist (deny the existence of Jesus Christ), an aspiritist (deny the existence of spirit), an amortalist (deny the existence of afterlife), an abioist (deny the existence of life), but – to clarify – NOT an amoralist (deny the existence of “morals” [or justice]). I am a moralist, one who believes that the “moral symbols” of nature are found in the symbols, equations, rules, and laws of physical chemist, as Goethe prophesized two centuries ago, and NOT a nihilist (believes that existence is meaningless, purposeless, pointless, and valueless), these can all be explained via free energy inflection point (e.g. Gates model)” (mental note; arisen while penning the Margaret of Navarre[12] article, Apr 14)[10] Continuity
(theory or equation)
+ Coupling (theory)
+ motor (principle)
Chance 2018 Began to identify explicitly as "anti-chance", sometime before or after reading Holbach's System of Nature (3 Feb 2018), among a few other authors, and realizing that there were only about a half-dozen or so thinkers, namely: Spinoza, Newton, Diderot, Holbach, Goethe, Schiller, Buchner, Einstein, and Schoffeniels, who addressed this topic directly and openly, in opposition the majority who believe in chance as a fundamental principle of nature.[13]
Will Models: ABC model, animate things (e.g. walking molecules), Schopenhauer model, induced movement, spontaneity force, impulse, etc.
Self Models: Leonardo Vinci (1490), James Maxwell (1879), Karl Pearson (1892).

Discussion

Of note, some of the stated "beliefs" in the belief row, are but collections of water-tested ruminations, jotted down as personal notes; note of which, aside from say "belief in the atom" seem to be able to solidify in the mind as dominate beliefs or creeds.

Note: basically, it is akin to an immense vast rabbit hole one ventures into, when attempting to cogently write and research into this area of RMS subject matter; compare the dozens of volumes produced by Budge and Massey alone; the Ralph Sampson (1924) quote on venturing into Newton's collected works, as an editor, also comes to mind.
