Partial List of Requirements

  1. You have to read the Bible from cover to cover, in chronological order, following our reading assignments.

  2. This is a one-year program. You can take longer, but you can't take less than one year to read the entire Bible and complete other program requirements.

  3. This is a 365-day program. You can take more days, but you cannot complete more than 1/365th of the program in any 24-hour period.

  4. You have to answer one or two easy, obvious, no-brainer, no-trick questions on each of these 365 days. "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"

  5. You must blog your answers to our questions. We will set up the blog for you. The blog will time-stamp your answers and will be a public record of your compliance with the terms of this wager. We will "monetize" the blog with advertisements of our choice which will bring us a minimum of $1,000 in revenue per year, enabling us to pay off the bet in the extraordinarily unlikely and improbable event that we lose this bet. You will get paid $1,000; we will retain all revenue generated above $1,000. All advertisements will be family-friendly; no gambling.

  6. You are not required to provide any proof whatsoever that you can pay up when you lose this bet. (And you will lose.) You will not be required to give us your credit card number. You will not be required to send us a registered letter from your attorney or accountant certifying that $1,000 has been placed in escrow in the event you lose this bet. (And you will lose.) Since we're anarchists and don't believe in "the government," we're not going to go crying to "the government" when you lose this bet but won't pay up. (And you will lose.) 

  7. If we lose the bet and don't pay, you may sue us in one of the government's courts, put a lien on our bank account, and send an armed Marshall out to shoot our dog, taser us, throw a flash grenade in our child's playpen, put us in handcuffs, waterboard us, lock us in a cage to be sodomized by a psychopath, and nuke our whole neighborhood "back to the stone age," but we won't sue you and ask the government to hurt you when you lose and don't pay. That's because we're anarchists, and you're not.

  8. Yet.

You're not going to be persuaded that the Bible is an Anarchist Manifesto without seeing the BIG PICTURE. America's Founders could see the Big Picture because their education was well-rounded and created a comprehensive Christian worldview. Their vision was not perfect; they accepted slavery and "the State" as "divine institutions." Our program is designed to avoid these and other errors.

The Anarchist Worldview Bible Curriculum

How about a bird's-eye view of these five works that you will be required to read in the Anarchist Bible Bet "Colonial American One-Room Schoolhouse 2.0"

You will read Five of the Most Important Works in the History of America in the next 365 days

  1. The Bible - Most important book in the history of the human race
  2. The Westminster Catechism - behind the Bible, the most widely-circulated document in America in 1776.
    • taught in every classroom in America
  3. The Wealth of Nations - the superiority of Capitalism vs. Socialism
  4. The Myth of "the Separation of Church and State" - America was created as a Christian nation
    • Documents from a U.S. Supreme Court case in 1892
  5. "Novus Ordo Seclorum" - The Myth of "the Rapture"
    • The Christian case for long-term optimism about the future of "American Exceptionalism."

Let's look at those five works in a little more detail

The Bible

The Bible is the most important book in the history of the human race.

It was banned from your public school education.*

  • No other book has inspired the building of more hospitals, schools, universities, or orphanages.
  • No other book explains the origin of reason and why humans are more glorious than animals.
  • No other book has inspired more lasting works of art.
  • No other book has raised the standard of living of more people.
  • No other book has influenced more codes of law in more Western nations.
  • No other book from any other world religion (Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam) even makes the claim that its every word was breathed out by a personal God (who is not Himself part of the Creation), through human instruments He created to perfectly write the words God intended them to write for our benefit.
  • No other book has made a greater contribution to the building of "Western Civilization."
  • No other book has inspired more symphonies, oratorios, cantatas, or other enduring musical works.
  • No other book has brought more liberty, prosperity, and virtue to the world.
  • No other book has caused more of its most faithful readers to be arrested and executed.
    Like Jesus.
  • Maybe that's why we shouldn't be surprised that . . .

The United States Federal Government has made it illegal for public school teachers to teach children the Bible
the way Jesus and the authors of the Bible would teach it.

If fact, since the Declaration of Independence (America's "birth certificate") was based on the Bible, the Federal Government prohibits public school teachers from teaching students
that the Declaration of Independence is really true.
(Students can only be taught that a bunch of dead, white males used to believe it was true.)

The Westminster Standards

America's Founders said that "religion and morality" were "necessary for good government and the happiness of mankind." A good summary of "religion and morality" is found in the Catechisms and Confession of Faith drafted in Westminster in the 1640's.

B.B. Warfield, professor at Princeton in the late 1800's, wrote of the Westminster Standards,

[T]hey are the final crystallization of the elements of evangelical religion, after the conflicts of sixteen hundred years. . . . [T]hey are the richest and most precise and best guarded statement ever penned of all that enters into evangelical religion. . . .[1]

Richard Gardiner, in his impressive collection of "Primary Source Documents Pertaining to Early American History, lists many sources which introduce the average Secular Humanist to the now-unknown religious foundations of  American Independence and Government. Among these sources are the Westminster Standards. Gardiner says of them:

indent.gif (90 bytes)The Westminster Confession of Faith (1646) In addition to being the decree of Parliament as the standard for Christian doctrine in the British Kingdom, it was adopted as the official statement of belief for the colonies of Massachusetts and Connecticut. Although slightly altered and called by different names, it was the creed of Congregationalist, Baptist, and Presbyterian Churches throughout the English speaking world. Assent to the Westminster Confession was officially required at Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. Princeton scholar, Benjamin Warfield wrote: "It was impossible for any body of Christians in the [English] Kingdoms to avoid attending to it." [Link goes to chap.23, "On the Civil Magistrate."]
indent.gif (90 bytes)The Westminster Catechism (1646) Second only to the Bible, the "Shorter Catechism" of the Westminster Confession was the most widely published piece of literature in the pre-revolutionary era in America. It is estimated that some five million copies were available in the colonies. With a total population of only four million people in America at the time of the Revolution, the number is staggering.
indent.gif (90 bytes)The Westminster Catechism was not only a central part of the colonial educational curriculum, learning it was required by law. Each town employed an officer whose duty was to visit homes to hear the children recite the Catechism. The primary schoolbook for children, the New England Primer, included the Catechism.  Daily recitations of it were required at these schools. Their curriculum included memorization of the Westminster Confession and the Westminster Larger Catechism. There was not a person at Independence Hall in 1776 who had not been exposed to it, and most of them had it spoon fed to them before they could walk. [Link to Q. 127 of Larger Catechism; cf. also Q. 129.]

Here is an edition of our Westminster Module from several years ago. If you enroll in the Anarchist Bible Bet home study program, you'll get the 2015-16 edition of all Five Modules with the freshest content.

Anarcho-Capitalism and the Wealth of Nations

In 1776, the year the Declaration of Independence was signed, Adam Smith wrote a book that is considered the first treatise on Capitalism. Full title: An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of The Wealth of Nations. What causes some nations to be wealthier than others? Freedom, personal responsibility, and morality. Pretty obvious, really; a nation characterized by rampant theft can never become prosperous. When competition turns into vengeance, and life is not respected, civilization crumbles. Subsequent economists have crystallized Smith's thesis:

"Capitalism" is the social system based on
the rejection of the initiation of force or violence against others.

A nation that is virtuous and free from the initiation of force and threats of violence, is wealthier than a nation which covets, steals, and initiates force against others. "Religion and morality" is the key to a Market freed from tyranny.

But in our secularist day, people are foggy-headed about this. People confuse "capitalism" with "crony-capitalism," "Keynesianism," and mild forms of socialism and fascism. "Capitalism" as a word has no meaning. So let's forget "capitalism" and focus on the roots of a peaceful and prosperous society:


The foundation of a flourishing humane economy is the repudiation of violence. We've been trained to reject "pacifism" on the grounds of "self-defense." This is an ambiguous and unChristian slogan. It is a rationalization for vengeance. The myth of "self-defense" weakens our resolve to follow the executed Christ and trust in statist violence.

Human beings know how to resolve conflicts without violence, but politicians and defense contractors want us to believe we need government compulsion and threats of violence to maintain "order." But order comes from a commitment to non-aggression. As we read the Bible, we face the requirement to beat our "swords into plowshares." This means pacifism and a Freed Market. You have questions about pacifism? We have answers.

Anarchism and "Anarcho-Capitalism"

Too many people, when they voice opposition to "capitalism," are actually thinking of "crony-capitalism," fascism, Keynesianism, and other systems of government coercion or favoritism in the Market. That's why we favor the phrase "anarcho-capitalism," or "100% Pure Laissez-Faire capitalism." "Laissez-Faire" is French for
"Let us work,"
"Let us conduct our business the way we think is best," or just
"Let us alone!"
Politicians do not know how to run a profitable business or make an economy thrive.
When governments face competition, they drop bombs on innocent consumers.
When businesses face competition, they lower prices or raise the quality, or invent something totally new to benefit consumers and raise our standard of living.

That is to say, businesses whose CEO's who are not victims of atheistic educational malpractice do not resort to violence. This is why America's Founders believed that "religion, morality, and knowledge" were "necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind." Good schools create good businesses.

Good schools cannot create "good government." "Government" is force; government is violence; government is theft. "Central planning" is socialism and socialism is war. "Government" is the militarization of the economy. "Good government" is a contradiction in terms.

In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 10, Jesus discovered His disciples arguing about who is going to be the "greatest" in the Kingdom of God. They didn't understand that Jesus' Kingdom was quite unlike the kingdoms of the world.

But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. {43} Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. {44} And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. {45} "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

The word translated "rulers" comes from the Greek word from which we derive our English word "anarchist."

"Lords," "rulers" and "great ones" are "archists."

Jesus clearly says His followers are not to be "archists." They are to be "servants." The biggest government lie in the history of the human race is that "anarchists" are the bad guys, and those who oppose "anarchists" (logically, "archists") are the Good Guys and defenders of civilization.

We are told that an "anarchist" is In reality, it is the archist who:
  • a bomb-throwing
  • assassin
  • who rejects the doctrine of private property,
  • seeks to foment disorder, chaos and riots in order to overthrow the government by force and violence
  • and establish some dreadful political ideal like "the dictatorship of the proletariat," where everyone is his own god and criminals run wild.
  • drops the most bombs
  • assassinates the most people
  • threatens, confiscates, or destroys the most private property
  • destabilizes and overthrows the most governments
  • is the greatest threat to "good government and the happiness of mankind.

This is a "paradigm shift." The most orderly and prosperous society is the one with the greatest liberty, not the most powerful Emperor. But the essential foundation of liberty, prosperity, order and peace is the Bible, and

"Religion, morality, and knowledge are necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, therefore schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged."
[adapted from the Northwest Ordinance of 1787]

Consider the exposition of the 6th Commandment ("Thou shalt not kill") and the 8th Commandment ("Thou shalt not steal") found in the Westminster Larger Catechism. These two commandments alone, if taken seriously, consistently, and faithfully, would rid the world of all governments. When we all stand before "the Supreme Judge of the World," nobody is going to hear, "Oh, you worked for the government? Then all your acts of  theft and murder are excused. Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord."

Instead of reading Adam Smith's 18th-century work, we'll read a modern version of the same theme, called Healing Our World.

Why do we need to "heal" our world? Since I was born, the U.S. federal government has killed, crippled, or made homeless tens of millions of innocent non-combatant civilians around the world. I would say this makes the United States the most evil entity on the planet and the enemy of mankind. And most Americans, if aware of this, say the price "is worth it" to keep the cost of gas down. Government is a reflection of bad morals, which are an effect of bad education. The worse the education, the larger the government. The world today is being strangled by the tentacles of immorality, violence, and crony-capitalism. But don't blame "them." We have to blame ourselves if we're going to Heal Our World.

Because of their Biblical education, America's Founding Fathers realized that "the Divine Right of Kings" was not a Biblical doctrine. You have been denied this education by an imperialist regime that can only be described as "the enemy of mankind." You don't see half of what America's Founders saw. If they were here today, they would see not only that the "divine right of kings" is an unChristian concept, but the entire concept of "the nation-state," having been invented by rebels and nowhere commanded or endorsed in the Bible, is a complete failure, leading to the deaths of hundreds of millions of people, the enslavement of billions, and the destruction or confiscation of trillions of dollars of property. In the 20th century alone.

In the phrase "Religion, morality, and knowledge," which America's Founders said were "necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind," "knowledge" also meant the ability to discharge one's divine calling, or vocation. Each of us has a calling from God. The one who is called to be a plumber or a farmer has a divine calling that is just as spiritual as one who thinks he's called to be a priest. This was the genius of the Protestant Reformation doctrine of "The Priesthood of All Believers." Government regulation of the economy is interference in the discharge of one's divine calling. It is interference in the way one worships God during the work week. This is why America's Founders believed revolution against Britain's economic regulations was a religious duty. Americans today are victims of atheistic education, and have no concept of the divine nature of their calling. They think their work is "secular."

The Myth of "the Separation of Church and State"

We are told that teaching the Bible in public schools violates "the separation of church and state."


Which church?

Or as James Madison, the "Father of the Constitution" would say, which "ecclesiastical body."

Most churches today do not teach Christian doctrine and the Bible in church as rigorously as Americans 300 years ago taught the Bible in school.

Today's myth of the "separation of church and state" has nothing to do with denominations of ecclesiastical bodies, or "churches" (which is what the First Amendment is really about). "Separation of Church and State" actually means "the separation of God and Government." It means the government is not obligated to obey God. It means the government now claims to  be  god, instead of being "under God" -- which is where America's Founders intended government to be, not "separate" from God; ignoring God; pretending God does not exist.

Because of the modern myth of "separation of church [God] and state,"

The U.S. Federal Government prohibits a school teacher in a government-run school from teaching students that the Declaration of Independence really is true.
  • that there really is a God, and His existence is a "self-evident truth"
  • that our rights really are the product of the intelligent design of our Creator
              (not a gift from the government)
  • that all Americans really are obligated to conform their lives to
              "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God"
  • that one day our actions really must pass judgment with
              "the Supreme Judge of the world"
  • that all Americans really should have "a firm reliance on
              the Protection of Divine Providence."
  • that Americans have a duty -- not just a right --
              to abolish any government that becomes a tyranny.
              This is a religious duty.
              As Jefferson put it,
                      "Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God."
              Secularists inevitably make the government their god.
All of these foundational propositions violate the modern myth of "separation of church and state." Therefore none of these truths can be taught as truth in a school controlled by the secular government of the United States.

The Federal Government says that teachers in government-operated schools paid for by your taxes cannot "endorse" or "promote" these ideas. Oh, sure, students can be taught that a long time ago some people believed the Declaration of Independence was true, but teachers cannot say The Declaration of Independence really is objectively true, regardless of whether any human being or any government believes it to be true, and that students should stand up and risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor in defense of those unchanging true principles.

Clearly, nobody who signed the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution would agree with this framework.

In 1892 the U.S. Supreme Court emphatically declared that the U.S. was "a Christian nation." The Court made a lengthy review of all the most important "organic" documents in American history. By reading the Court's opinion and the charters it cites, we will show that the modern idea of "separation of church and state" is a destructive myth, and that America was intended be a nation "under God."

The word "theocracy" comes from two Greek words meaning "God + rules." If America is a nation "under God," then God is over us, ruling, and that means we're a "theo+cracy." Every government on earth is a "theocracy." Every legal system is a reflection of a moral system, and every moral system is a reflection of the god of that society. A society's god can be the Christian God, the muslim god, or the Secular Humanist god, where every man is his own god, but the State inevitably becomes "God walking on earth" (to quote Hegel).

Consistent with what we learned under "Anarcho-Capitalism" above, we reject any attempt to use government coercion to promote "the true religion." But more important, we reject government coercion to suppress the Christian values of the Declaration of Independence.

We've been taught to fear the word "Theocracy" as much as we've been taught to fear the word "anarchy."

  • We've been taught to fear "anarchy" because our wise overlords want to keep their job.
  • We've been taught to fear "Theocracy" because atheistic tyrants don't want to be reminded that God is on the Throne, and they are answerable to His Law.

 A truly Biblical, Christian Theocracy is an anarchist Christocracy.

Confidence in the future possibility of “Peace on Earth.”

The doctrine of "the Rapture" was unknown in 1776. It was invented in the early 1800's. Nobody in Christendom had ever heard of it before. This doctrine, and the larger eschatological framework in which it appeared ("dispensational premillennialism") substituted "waiting" for "working," and allowed atheists to secularize America in the years that followed -- while Christians retreated and waited for the Rapture.

There is good reason to believe that "Peace on Earth" -- the message of the angels to the shepherds on the first Christmas Day -- is possible. Politically and Economically possible, and Eschatologically inevitable.

Too many Christians have bought into erroneous ideas about things getting worse and worse leading up to "Armageddon" and other apocalyptic nightmares. America's Founders were optimistic and future-oriented and believed they were creating a "Novus Ordo Seclorum" -- the motto on the official U.S. Seal which means "New Order for the Ages." Nobody in 1776 believed in "the Rapture." They believed peace, liberty, and prosperity were possible.

Lawrence Cremin writes about Benjamin Rush, who was
a physician who signed the Declaration of Independence:

American Education:
The National Experience, 1783-1876

NY: Harper & Row, 1980, p. 114-15.

For Rush, who was present in the Congress as a representative of Pennsylvania, the events surrounding the creation of the Republic marked nothing less than a turning point in the course of human history. "I was animated constantly," he reflected in later years, "by a belief that I was acting for the benefit of the whole world, and of future ages, by assisting in the formation of new means of political order and general happiness."11
11. The Autobiography of Benjamin Rush, edited by George W. Corner (Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1948), p.161.

Christians who believe in "the Rapture" do not believe in "future ages." They believe Christ is going to rapture them "at any moment," and destroy the planet and everything man has worked for. Rapturists do not work "for the benefit of the whole world," nor assist in "the formation of new means of political order and general happiness." As we have mentioned several times, America's Founders believed that teaching children the Bible every day from their earliest years was "necessary for good government and the happiness of mankind." Secular schools and theories of rapture are why we now have bad government and depression, instead of "good government" and "happiness."


A Vision for Humanity

The Curriculum of the colonial American one-room schoolhouse 2.0 will give students a vision for a Christianized world. We are all created in the Image of God, and hard-wired to aspire to the vision described by the Old Testament Prophet Micah 4:1-7:

Micah's Prophecy


And it will come about in the last days
That the mountain of the House of the LORD
Will be established as the chief of the mountains
And it will be raised above the hills
Christ established His Kingdom at the first Christmas
And the peoples will stream to it.
And many nations will come and say,
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD
And to the House of the God of Jacob,
It will continue to expand until it covers the globe
That He may teach us about His ways
And that we may walk in His paths."
For from Zion will go forth the Law
Even the Word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Biblical Law will be our standard
And He will judge between many peoples
And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.
Then they will hammer their
swords into plowshares
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation will not lift up sword against nation
And never again will they train for war.
We will pursue God's "shalom"
And each of them will sit under his Family:
Beginning at home
Vine and under his fig tree,
With no one to make them afraid.
For the
LORD of hosts has spoken.
Healing the Environment
Though all the peoples walk
Each in the name of his god,
As for us, we will walk
In the Name of the LORD our God
forever and ever
In that day, saith the LORD,
will I assemble her that halteth,
and I will gather her that is driven out,
and her that I have afflicted;
And I will make her that halted a remnant,
and her that was cast far off a strong nation:
and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion
from henceforth, even for ever.
