About Danism

Danism is a philosophical and political school of study deadicated to spreading thought and development. It was founded in 2008 by Daniel Holden with heavy contributions from other great philosophers like Noah Thorold, Jack Taylor, Elizabeth Brewer and Rochelle Hailston (to name only a few).

The Church was estabilished soon after the foundations of Danism to help Danism grow and continue it's development. The other purpose of the Church is to help spread the word of Danism and get new members.

  • Why is the sky blue? - The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air. However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.
  • Am I allowed to drink or take other intoxicating substances as a follower of Danism? - Yes! Drinking is encouraged (As long as it isn't done in moderation).
  • Can I contact you? - Sure, pop an e-mail to dan[at]danism[dot]co[dot]uk
