The Circus of Morality

 

Morals evolve. The bible even helps to record historic record of this process. The Christian, rather than to admit to this process, may try to explain the evidence of sign of this being noted to occur, within scripture , as being about a “different dispensation

In other-words, they be forced “to act as if” there was another time when it might have been morally righteous for parent to be stoning their children to death . And so on

In this instance they’d produce an escape route to try to deny the evidence that there were ever any moral evolution occurring, by pretending like as if it was about “a different dispensation

This is being done, so that the believer can then also see a-reason to resist to admit it is ok that moral might continue to evolve even further 

Humanism is always been the basis of moral evolution. As soon as the human would be willing to accept this as being “likely” to be correct. Then the easier it also becomes to move forward

Humanism can even help human to overcome sexism. And yet its also been religion whats been “acting to help stifle the progress” of moral evolution, in this regard

Religious based moral, are less likely to find common ground for which all human can find a “way in which to relate”

Where as humanism is able to provide us a common foundation of what is universal . All human, can find a sense of common ground “within being human” Both the believer and non believer alike. And both “the man and the women” alike, too

Religion is what to often act so as to help stifle this process. 

  1. Humanism would propose that human should have the right to choose . That gay people can have the right to choose to get married should they want to. And that the gay religious person could always also still retain the right to choose “to refuse” to get married too, should they want to “refuse to” (IE:this religious right still remains intact). In both instances , humanism offers the human ” the right of freedom of choice”
  2.  where as religion would want to deny the gay person should ever have the right to choose to marry

In this instance religion is proposing to deny the gay person’s right to have their own freedom of choice in regard to marriage . In affect, religion is proposing that religion should rule-over the rights of others

Its a bit of a circus 

 

 

 

 

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
