As people move away from religion, what is there to move to?


Although an Atheist, I have a great admiration for the social decorum, morality (quantified) and family structure that the religious (Judeo/Christian) belief system brought to the western world. I believe that it is questionable that America would have survived without that social influence. I also feel that, as this mindset fades, so, too, will the strength of America give way to a totalitarian society, as that, it would seem is where are are going.

    M.T.--Would you like to explain the Atheism of Joe Stalin and the totalitarianism of Communism. Atheists are no less the pack animal than the theist and will follow the alpha male--the history is there. Secular omnipotence.

    Lisa--The purpose for your life should be what you decide it should be. There are no mysteries.

    What if one has no spiritual beliefs, but rather an understanding of what is?

    tsmog--Enjoyed your profile-nice to see a positive focus. I do not disagree on the structure. What of the social manifestations that are carry overs from European Christianity, as customs of family, bonds and loyalties,a sense of decorum.

    Altruism and ambiguity in disguise of truth.

    JT--Christianity was Americanized under the Bill of Rights, declawed, if you will, but leaving those those social constructs in place.
