The religions are hard-pressed to devise an easy bridge to the modern age. They should do the hard work honestly and admit that ancient rules
were based on ancient understanding.

The intent of most religions as practiced by their most able is goodness, survival, and improvement. However, these have often been subverted to evil.. One reason for the horrors of the Inquisition was the "demand to know" by persons who actually did not know and it worried them.

It's everyone's responsibility to prevent a horrible future. But those who think individual freedoms destroy our future are missing the point.
It's not that simple. What destroys the future is blindness to one's own ignorance. Big time talkers with good resumes cannot lead us to safety forever

... something ought to lead us to become wise and knowledgable about our own lives.

This does mean NOT trashing the environment, eating badly and not having unsafe sex, and disregarding family values.

It does NOT MEAN hating science, hating food and hating sexual freedom, or having wars between families for the sake of dominance.
