In the UK there is a lot of talk using the phrase ‘ Road-Map ‘, even though using it will not mean that a foot is put on any particular surface. I am not sure about the US. Religions tend to use the word ‘pilgrimage'
This is a poll about The POSSIBLITY of a road map to eliminate religion.
Even though the concepts, devices and motivational words have not yet been thrashed out, Do you FEEL that a road map would be helpful . One test to answer the question would be “ Do I feel I am on a journey away from religion or towards an as yet unknown replacement?"
As in real Life a Road map is a guide to thinking BUT voting [your conclusion ]tells us a lot more. In this post, which is REAL, Comment all you want, be as negative as you want but VOTING tells us a lot more.
Logically speaking here, imo, Religions are just like any other Empire that Man has built/created.
And as we all know from history, the Greater the Empire the faster it falls under its own weight, etc, etc.
And the 'Empires' of Religion are just as vulnerable as were those of the Romans, the Greeks, the Persians, etc, etc.
Sooner or later, the cracks begin to appear, just as we have seen them appear in the last few decades or so, then those same cracks begin to widen, steadily and slowly, creeping towards each other UNTIL they meet and the whole thing begins to crumble and fall.
It is more than possible that BEFORE Organised Beliefs systems were invented there was NO actual Religion/s as we see them now, it is also, imo, a possibility that sometime somewhere in the future such things as Organized Religions will be allocated to the Myths and Legends of the long gone by past history of Human kind.
It has already been attempted. It was called "The way". Before it was called a "religion ", the old testiment people of Israel were under the government laws of there nation often referred to as "law of Moses ".
The theme of biblical text is that the "Jesus " character fulfilled the need for such laws and those that understood in the early days of the book of Acts had an understanding of a way, road map as you call it, or as called then before christianity got Romanized, "The way".
As you see historically, "The way" was not all that well successful and "christianity " got Romanized and reinstatutionalized as a form of government.
I agree with @CuddyCruiser: religion will never be eliminated. The reason is simple: the charlatans standing in pulpits will always exploit the stupidity sitting in the pews, and both will be forever with us. Three centuries of reason have failed to overthrow religion.
I would go for "observing a drift" rather than "on a journey." It's slow, inconsistent and any attempts to impose direction seem to produce local eddies that may contribute to but hardly sway to the overall pattern. Rather like fleas on a dog asking each other who's steering.
Moving towards a more secular society, separation of church and state, exposing the abuses of religion are all positives in my view. We will never eliminate religion, but we could lessen religious privilege. I know it's a big reach, but in a couple generations churches could be taxed like any other business.
