There have been many members of our Faith who have predicted future events that surround our Religion.
There are passages within our book that mention specifically ‘The Fools’. The Fools are quite simply those who want to copy our Religious texts and art for their own gain, either to exploit others, gain a little bit of influence or power over people or to simply show our organisation in a negative light.
It came to our attention last month that this time is now upon us. We have found people online who are copy and pasting our videos, literature and art, seemingly for their own personal gain. We have had to file complaints and copyright strikes on YouTube videos which are owned by us.
There are also people pretending to represent us.
The Faith has been prepared for this situation for a long time and we want others to know that stealing our Intellectual Property will not be accepted on any level. The reasons for this were made clear to High Ranking members of the Faith: We do not want splinter groups of Solaranism to form.
For those who unlawfully recreate our intellectual property or are thinking about it, we will find you and take legal action against you. Our website is the Hub and Home of Solaranism. If you find anyone pretending to be representatives of the Faith who are not listed on our website as members, then please contact admin.

Matthew L. Fisher, for those of you who are unfamiliar with his work, is a freelance and published composer. He has created many classical pieces of music over his career.
We, of the faith, were first made aware of him in 2010. We checked out his YouTube channel and really enjoyed his music. We decided to message him and within a couple of weeks he was working freelance for the faith on several projects.
In 2012 we decided to have our members create works of art based upon the faith we share, and so, we stopped paying Matthew for his services.
The arrangement between him and the faith was that all music produced by him at that time was owned by Yahmos Productions – The Creative Branch of the Faith – and that he would only showcase examples of the work for his freelance business.
In 2019, however, we have discovered that, not only has he broken the contract, he is selling copyrighted material (Music owned by the Faith) to people purchasing licenses off him on Audio Jungle so that they can then use it in their projects.
We have sent him an email Cease and Desist and have waited several months for a response from him. But, it seems, he is still selling Music we commissioned and own, to others on the internet.
This kind of behaviour is despicable and must not be tolerated. We are now discussing our options with our legal team and we are most likely to issue him with a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and failing that we would have to file a suit in the United States of America.
Our advice to anyone who seeks to commission or buy licences from him should reconsider.

Many people have asked us why we do not actively go out and preach our religion to people in public
The easiest answer is that people are aggressive in tone and body language when confronted with new ideas. Sometimes – most times – people are already part of a religious group and will aggressively state that their religion is the “One true religion”.
I personally have tried a great deal to converse with my peers in the past about our religion, but it falls on deaf ears. A lot of the time people make up their own version of what I have said – a twisted version – to mock our religion in whatever way. I have since decided not to discuss my religious beliefs to anyone.
I have been misinterpreted a number of times. Some people think that I am god of the Faith. Others simply believe that I made it up or I don’t know what the Faith is about. These people are ignorant of the facts.
I do not discuss my Faith with outsiders because people become far too aggressive when I talk about religion. The whole purpose of our website is so that I, and others, do not have to discuss it with potentially hostile people.
Almost everything about our faith can now be found on this website. We worked hard to publish The Righteous Jardacia on a simple PDF that can be downloaded from our site. We are also making the Archive easier to navigate and we are slowly adding more information to it.
We will continue to let our website do the preaching for us, this is far more effective and far-reaching than standing on a street corner shouting at strangers would ever be.
We hope that, instead of dismissing us out of hand, you read all the information on our website

As some of you might be aware, my grandmother passed away on Avatars day 1st June 2019) this year. I want to include her in The Book Of War officially.
She was a wise woman who raised me from an early age. She never had, or asked for, any help. She just got on with things. She didn’t accumulate any debt during her seventy years of life, she didn’t make a lot of money either but somehow managed to save a majority of her money. She thought foolish those who frivolously spent their money and she thought even less of those who accumulated debt.
I feel that she is the perfect example of one of our tenants: You shall not acquire debt.
She probably led a more Solaran Lifestyle than I have and she was not a member of the faith. I could probably say that she was the greatest Solaran who was never a Solaran and it is for this reason that I am including her in the book of war at a later date. Her entry will be placed on the archive instead of rewriting The Righteous Jardacia to allow her inclusion.
