Religion is declining in many countries around the world and hardly exists in some countries.
It would fair to say that scientifically acquired knowledge has taken a bite of religious practice over the years. The premising suggestion that there is a god looking at everything mankind does or should do is vanishing out the human consciousness.
Should we emulate the social directives written in ancient manuscripts established by those ancients for their civilization ?
Is it possible that mankind can control and guide itself now with all the acquired knowledge we have attained, toward the ending betterment of humanity ?
I think yes we can it is possible and I also think it would be advantageous as well over rigidly devised religious doctrines derived inherently from ancient civilizations..
