How do you see our collective moral and ethical cup? Half full or overflowing with goodness?

What do they believe? What do you think? Talk about religion as it exists today.

How do you see our collective moral and ethical cup? Half full or overflowing with goodness?

Not to be a bean counter that ignores the evil that is still with us, but if I look strictly at the statistics for what I call the evil markers, crime, death by violence including war, poverty, poor health and education; I see them all at the best levels we have ever enjoyed.

This is in spite of the few places where the stats are backsliding, which ironically includes the U.S., a Christian nation; whose education level is going down, along with its moral sense.

I will let you find whatever stats you might be interested in and will only offer the stats spoken of, at the end of this link.
Richard Dawkins - Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life

I see our cup running over in spite of the vile and immoral mainstream religions that we are maintaining, for God only knows why. We can thank all the gods that the religious are not walking their talk and are following more moral ways.

How do you see our collective moral and ethical cup? Half full; or overflowing with goodness?

We live in a miracle, on a ship hurtling through space, and life is better today for every human by any measure you care to name. See morality index .com for more. The cost is maybe a diff subject :/

Most people do not even though the stats are clear.

I see benefits. What costs are you thinking of?

I agree. Time will tell.

If you are interested in the environment, Cowspiracy will open your eyes to what the worst polluter on the planet is. Our Holy Cows.

Even the environmentalists are afraid of browbeating the public with what they know as they fear losing funding by pissing too many Holy Cow lovers off. Those people want to blame everyuone but themselves and their own habits.
