Famous Prestonian, Cometan, is best known for founding a new religion called Astronism
There have been many famous people from Preston, or famous Prestonian people, but Cometan is the most well known of all! An author, philosopher and religious figure, Cometan was born in Preston in the county of Lancashire, England.
From the age of fifteen, Cometan has received a series of revelations that gave him the ability to write a religious and philosophical book that came to be over 2 million words long. He called his book the Omnidoxy.
The Omnidoxy became the founding book of Astronism, a synthesis of religion and philosophy that is based on a cosmocentric worldview. One of the main beliefs of Astronism is cosmosis which prophesies each and every person's reunion with The Cosmos upon our deaths.
Cometan is a modern religious figure and philosopher who has also founded the discipline of cosmontology which is a branch of philosophy concerned with space exploration, the nature of The Cosmos, and humanity's future in relation to the stars.
