Religion – Blueprint for Culture

Featured Video Play Icon

Abstract: Religion is the blueprint of culture. Religion and culture are inseparable; where there is one, there is the other. Religion is here to stay, forming as it does the underlying conceptual structure for sustained and propagated civilizations. The key is to understand the basic human impulse toward the utility of religion, of its truth as relative and not absolute, and to harness it for the betterment of society. From age to age religions become outdated and must be renewed. Persuasion but not coercion is the best way to share your religion with others. And, by the way the best way to teach is to listen. If you find that you are annoying someone by talking about religion, talk about something else pleasant to you both. Religions are particularly effective in passing on value systems to children.
