We are Earthseed
The life that perceives itself

Earthseed is a real religion inspired by the science fiction of Octavia Butler, specifically her books, Parable of the Sower (1993) and Parable of the Talents (1998).

Octavia Butler (1947-2006) was one of the first African-American science fiction writers, and one of the first women to break the science fiction gender barrier.

In her Parable series, Butler includes many verses from a fictional book of scripture called “The Book of the Living”. These verses have been collected here and describe the basic theology, ethics, and vision of Earthseed.

Earthseed’s three main tenets are:

God is Change.
Shape God.
The Destiny of Earthseed is to take root among the stars.
