The problem has been that heretofore there has been no new 21st century worldview and philosophy to live by
that is in sync with 21st century realities. (Most other philosophies and religions were created hundreds or
thousands of years ago and no longer seem relevant.) To fill this void — something new was needed.
Dr. Freeman Rader Ph.D.
The Potentialist Movement was founded by Dr. Rader, a college professor in the fields of Communication and Philosophy, out of frustration over his own struggles to find receptive outlets for his potential and that no existing philosophies or religions provided a comprehensive, intelligent, easy to understand set of beliefs and values to deal with 21st century realities. So he met the need by developing a new philosophy — not around a belief in supernatural forces — but rather around a strong belief in human potential and — not out of human arrogance — but rather out of an abiding sense of responsibility that mankind does justice with the potential that man possesses. He only wishes this worldview and philosophy existed when he started out, but is pleased knowing that something sensible now exists for those looking for "something intelligent to believe in" and that which leads to a "fulfilling and meaningful life".
Fortunately, now a sensible worldview and philosophy exists which is both easy to understand and adopt.

HERE'S A NICE SHORT "CAPSULE SUMMARY" OF WHAT THE POTENTIALIST MOVEMENT IS ABOUT
is a new 21st century worldview and philosophy to live by
… and an alternative to traditional religion. The major
difference is that it places its belief in human potential rather
than the various gods, and provides the explanations, beliefs,
values, goals, environment, and support necessary for people to make the most of
our lives and the world around us. It relies upon intelligence and rational analysis
rather than mysticism and faith, promotes values and responsibility for SELF, SOCIETY, and ENVIRONMENT; and focuses on constructive ‘SELF-ACTUALIZATION’ as the key to making life meaningful and providing the sense of enjoyment and accomplishment that people are seeking.
