Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

Religion may have evolved throughout history creating bonds and protocols for primitive peoples. Clans became tribes became nations, each with their own story of creation and meaning. Over time, verbal stories turned into scriptures and dogma, then along came councils to decide the canon. Just picture it, Bronze age oral history transforming into written and then into political and economic history. They are all bound up in each other. 

Some smart aleck came along and said man (human) was not the top of the pyramid, the sun did not go around the earth, evolving into recognizing gravity and all the other little tidbits began to pile up and before you know it, there were more galaxies, perhaps more planets with life, and humans moved from stone weapons to arrows (not because they ran out of stones but because they found a better way to bring down animals and fowl.) Then along came steel weapons, dynamite made it onto the battle zone (some thinking that would be the end of war because it was so deadly), and bullets, bombs, atomic energy, and nuclear energy. 

We are still stuck with that old book based on Bronze Age thinking, the one with the biggest bomb is the WINNER.  Might makes right. We are so right we now have the capacity to destroy life on earth as we know it. People can use their god/s and beliefs of dominion to overwhelm all others and poison our waters, soils, and air. 

We are no longer smart primates, we are destroyers of earth's life.

"Widespread rejection in America of climate science, and denial of climate change is linked with the "street fight" over evolution, speakers told an audience of mostly American scientists and educators.
 
But Miller said the stereotype that "rational science is at war with irrational faith" is wrong.
 
He said popular American culture and religious speakers promote a literal interpretation of the Bible, as well as the idea that morality would not exist without religion."

ha! okay...

United States placed second to last — just before Turkey — in a recent survey in 33 countries of how well people understood evolution.

regards to debate down there a couple:

DEBATE "BEFORE" POLL RESULTS:
Of 204 people that voted
37.3% said they thought religion was good for society.
46.1% said they thought religion was bad for society.
9.3% said they were undecided.
7.3% answered miscellaneously (aka did not answer the question). 4 of these votes said only Christian religion was good for society. The question was not Christ-centric, it was asking about religion in general.
