About Us

Lessons from Lovecraft

Our weekly podcast starts with the weird fiction of HP Lovecraft and his literary antecedents and progeny. Rev. Randolph Partain responds to these writings with the values of Humanism. It's a weekly opportunity to learn how to manage irrational fear and focus on the things that matter most to you. We also pronounce our weekly curses and blessings invoking the Cthulhu Mythos!

Good News! The meaning and purpose of life is yours to determine!

Humanist podcast uses Lovecraft and Cthulhu to promote living intentionally with integrity to life-affirming values, creating lives of purpose and meaning.

The Church of Cosmic Indifference recognizes that the cosmos is uncaring and disinterested in humanity, which means that human beings are in the ultimate position to create wholeness and well-being in our lives and in the world around us. We find the collection of imagery and symbolism widely known as the Cthulhu Mythos to be a fitting depiction of the indifferent cosmos, and we believe that the appropriate response to a cold and meaningless cosmos is to be personally responsible for defining meaningful guiding principles and acting with integrity to life-affirming values.

Curses and Blessings

Cosmic Indifference Podcast promotes Humanist ideals through Lovecraftian Weird fiction

As a tool for releasing anxiety and resentment, we practice the sacrament of calling upon the indifferent cosmos to curse those who offend us, so we can focus on creating meaning and living with authenticity. 

We also call upon the indifferent cosmos to bless us and those we cherish, to provide a sense of comfort, connection, and encouragement, understanding that an indifferent cosmos is unlikely to heed or respond to our petitions.

We amuse ourselves by engaging in these sacraments with over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek invocation of fictional Lovecraftian entities.
