The Culture Wars

The "Culture Wars" are a clash between modern secular freedoms and traditional religious restraints.

On one side of the debate are those who believe that politics and morality should be informed by knowledge and experience. Ideas about right and wrong must be allowed to change over time to adapt to the prevailing social, technological, and economic conditions. These ideas can be safely decided by a majority of people living in democratic political systems.

On the other side of the debate are those who insist on maintaining the traditional religious values that have guided the growth of civilization for thousands of years. They believe that traditional family values are the glue that holds civilizations together. They say that the loosening of these morals, along with the loss of faith in religion, is leading to a breakdown of society.

Complicating this debate is the "clash of civilizations" caused by differences in the religious beliefs and moral systems of different civilizations around the world.

There is only one way to bring peace to this conflict. Social harmony comes through common understanding. And achieving a common understanding is going to take a radical new approach to educating people about the underlying principles of science, philosophy, and religion.
