    If anyone has ever read all of it and knows if this is a religion or something else, please let me know. I bought a bottle off e-bay; asked the seller and she didn't know. Have searched internet and can't get an answer. I think it's kind of far out but maybe it's just a religion I'm not familiar with. Shouldn't bother me but I want to KNOW. Any thoughts or answers?

    I don’t think it’s a religion or cult…. just a man who saw a lot of evil and wanted to try to do some good in the world

    Now “Axe Body Wash” is an other story…..

    I’m using this link
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axe_(deodorant)

    Because it’s not as offensive as the one down at the bottom in the External Links section where it says ‘Official US Website” (warning to any one who opens it)

    I belong to a site where you send away for free samples..etc…and when I received the sample I also received a leather bracelet and literature from the “Order of the serpentine” when I went back to the original link for the sample it lead me to their web site….very strange place…

    It gave me the jeepers…I throw out the bracelet and the sample…

    There's a little bit about it on this webpage:
    http://www.drbronner.com/drb_socialresponsibility.html

    " The over 30,000 words spread across all the soap labels were Dr. Bronner's life work of searching every religion and philosophy for "Full Truths" that can be summed up in two beautiful sentences:

    1. CONSTRUCTIVE CAPITALISM IS WHERE YOU SHARE THE PROFIT WITH THE WORKERS AND THE EARTH FROM WHICH YOU MADE IT!

    2. WE ARE ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND WE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER AND SPACESHIP EARTH! "

    He was distinctive enough to be mentioned in Fringes Of Reason, published by the Whole Earth people (1982, I think). It's a fascinating book, and many of the groups mentioned are still going strong.
