RE: An age of Medusa: the syndrom of overprotective mother enters politics
I'm sorry, but I am getting a bit angry here. Letting people have the right to believe in a very old and possibly outdated moralsystem is not overprotecting, its tolerance. But not letting them have a say in political and scientific descisions is intelligent. Everyday we evolve, we find out new things about this planet we live on and how it works. With this new knowledge, how can a twothousand year old book (or any religious book, they are all quite old) tell us how to behave today?
This is not about mother or father figures (I find that thought especially frightening as I am german), but about being finally able to formulate humanism instead of religion, to search for prove rather than to judge and to believe in the ability of humankind to evolve and adapt.
