    Some people strongly contend that American culture and society have taken a turn for the worse.  They cite how the so-called fall of religion and belief in God has caused people to lose their moral fiber in terms of human interaction and relating to sexuality.  They further argue how the so-called fall of religion has created an irreverence towards life, denigrating the sacred and the marked increase in secularism.   Others maintain morality has nothing to do with religion and God.  They assert that American society has become more moral and that morality is more inclusive than it has ever been.  They proclaim that there is more acknowledgement of an individual morality and that American culture and society has evolved morally.  What are your thoughts?

      Does religion give us true knowledge?

    Well , there has to be a decline in almost all things moral and ethical ,  for the obvious  decline in our culture  Anyone who thinks its not declining is  a little off .    We are becoming less religious ,  General cultural decline has been happening since before  the baby boomer generations began their [our ]  adulthood .     The fifties and sixties - right up to the now generation  .     Morals ? yes . Ethics , yes . And yet we have to focus on the positive ,  some part of all  these generations offer up the best of us too !

    I believe we have also opened up a far, far different can of worms with the E- world  advances . There is a mass movement for a couple of decades now towards  an alternate reality  .  Game boy ,  I phones , texting ,  war games  ,just  what isn't included  in our modern families  tuning away from reality ?     The new maturity includes far more  fantasy world than reality .

      We are headed into the age of Aquarius. Technological advances have given us the power to travel through space, find cures, etc. or end civilizations and destroy ourselves and each other. Such power we have. You think God is not fascinated by this show? You think He will not allow us into this new age? I believe he will!

      I imagine He is at the top of the mountain laughing his head off!

      On the other hand God is not that pleased. He wanted us to love and be happy. Instead we do not love and we are not happy.

      We either work to fight and win the battle of life within us, or we play around and lose.
      Where are we? Winning or losing?
      Time will tell.

      Meanwhile we live to be happy the best way we can according to either folly or wisdom.
      I think we are learning which is which.

      Its not easy to tell, for some reason.

      As we move into the New Age, it will become ever more imperative to know what is wise and what is definitely NOT!
      ~ or it will be curtains. yikes!

    The school of life gives us wisdom, the school of hard knocks.
    Testing our limits, our boundaries. Seeing what we can get away with and what we cannot get away with.
    Time will tell … and some of us finally know a thing or two through experience, observation and witnessing … but the fresh new adults? They will not listen to the elder adults who have learned.

    And so it goes

    and God is at the top of the mountain ….
