Covid-19 Statement from the Kashfence Trust

Throughout history fake remedies and miracle cures have been used to mislead and rob vulnerable people when they are most afraid and in need. They give false hope to people when scientifically proven medicine and cures have not been developed. In the recent Covid-19 worldwide pandemic there is no shortage of unproven cures of traditional, herbal and even medicinal remedies being spread on social media. Many such tonics have already been responsible for deaths and illnesses worldwide and have caused individuals to be lax in their precautions regarding Covid-19. It is important to understand that even if a scientifically proven medicine or cure has not yet been developed it is not a vindication of superstitious or unproven claims. It is important to approach any remedy or cure touted for any ailment using proper scientific analysis and approach and to rely on the experts in the field and not fraudsters to find the appropriate solution.

Kashfence Philosophy

Kashfence Philosophy is the doctrine that maintains rational and scientific reasoning is the basis for a happy and moral life.  The word Kashfence is comprised of the word ‘Kashf’, meaning to discover in some languages, with the suffix ‘ence’ which denotes a quality, an action or result.  Together ‘kashf’ and ‘ence’ create the original word Kashfence intended to capture the essence of discovering through rational and scientific reasoning and analysis.  The essence of Kashfence Philosophy is for every person to discover through rational and scientific reasoning.

Kashfence Philosophy is not a religion but a philosophical basis and doctrine for living.  According to the Kashfence Philosophical thought a person is capable of discovering through rational and scientific reasoning not only information about the world but also moral principles.  Like the scientific domain the ability to discover moral principles and laws that govern society become better evolved and more advanced through peaceful dialogue that takes place between people as long as the underlying principle is rational and scientific reasoning.

According to Kashfence Philosophy there exists an unlimited God that created the entire world of being.  However, God has not ‘revealed’ anything to human beings.  The ability to reason is the best tool God has given every person to discover not only scientific principles but also all other principles including any basis for moral and legal opinions.
