Let me post my random thoughts (some my thoughts, some ideas of others that I agree with) on various religious issues.
Morality is relative to individual circumstances and relationships. Any action's ultimate rightness or wrongness can only be determined by those involved in the action. Good and evil are ideas that can be useful, but are inaccurate if used to describe the nature of the universe.
A practical morality can be derived from reason without the need to appeal to religious revelation and church dogma.
Humans are too innately noble to require supernatural coercion and threats of eternal damnation to behave morally.
Reject divinely inspired ethical and moral codes in favor of codes derived by reason from the human condition.
Moral values derive their source from human experience.
Some religions promote the idea that perfectly natural feelings (such as anger, lust, pride, wanting things) are evil and sinful. But feelings are not normally under conscious control. The result can be debilitating feelings of guilt where none should be present.
To live in a state of fear is unhealthy.
Indulgence, not abstinence. God put the “sinful” things here for our enjoyment, not as some kind of silly divine test.
Do unto others as they do onto you.
Need no elaborate, detailed list of rules of behavior.
Sexual enjoyment, from masturbation to intercourse is considered a gift of God. It is an activity that is to be thoroughly enjoyed as a major focus of one's life.
All life is free to develop in the universe, limited in potential only by the physical laws of nature.
There exists an objective reality; science is the tool to decipher it. That reality also applies to the nature of the human animal.
Miracles do not happen. The world operates by natural and self-sustaining laws of the creator.
Human beings possess the power and responsibility to shape their own lives independent of supernatural authority.
Full responsibility for the future of the world, its political systems, its ecology, etc. rests with humans. There is no God in heaven to intervene and save us from a disaster.
God does not intervene in the scientific, moral, religious, or technological progress of men, but does reward those who makes accomplishments which help humanity, and those who use the accomplishments to help humanity, and also punishes those who make evil progress, or use good or evil progress as a vehicle to further evil deeds.
Each person, because of her/his humanity inherently has dignity and worth.
Social structures such as governments and institutions are useful insofar as they help individuals to flourish - that is, become and remain healthy, happy and able to work toward their goals that do not interfere with the rights of other individuals to work toward their own goals.
Life is governed by the concepts of democracy, religious freedom and religious tolerance.
The preciousness and dignity of the individual person
Accept democracy and reject both theocracy and secular dictatorships as political systems that are dangerous to individual freedoms.
Value freedom of inquiry, expression and action.
Combat bigotry, hatred, discrimination, intolerance and censorship.
Support separation of church and state.
Reliance on God's will reduces our motivation to solve our own problems on earth. This leads to many social evils being neglected.
Each person seeks his/her unique spiritual path, based upon their personal life experience, the use of reason, the findings of science and her/his fundamental beliefs concerning deity, humanity, and the rest of the universe.
All the great religions of the world, and their sacred texts, have worth.
God created the universe, wound it up and then disassociated himself from his creation.
Reject a created world in favor of the theory of evolution and a universe that obeys natural laws.
One cannot access God through any organized religion, set of beliefs, rituals, sacraments or other practice.
Prayer is useless; it distracts people from useful activity.
Every man and woman has direct access to God; no priestly class or place of worship are needed
There is no need in one's religious life for elaborate ceremonies, rituals, gowns, creeds, or dogma.
God has not selected a chosen people (e.g. Jews or Christians) to be the recipients of any special revelation or gifts.
Deities and other supernatural beings
The Trinity does not exist. Jesus was a philosopher, rabbi, teacher and healer, and above all, messenger of God, but not his son.
Supernatural beings such as angels, demons, Satan, Holy Spirit do not exist.
The existence of some form of deity can be proven by reason.
Jesus Christ was incarnated, crucified, and resurrected, led a sinless life, and was atoned.
God holds a human form, but we do not know his race or gender…until we meet him in Heaven.
Value knowledge based on reason and hard evidence rather than on faith.
The good and bad deeds that we do add and subtract from our accumulated record. At the end of our life, we are rewarded or punished according to our record.
Those who were good in life ascend to Heaven, a place of eternal reward and freedom, where all are free to do what they please; those who were not descend to Hell. Hell is a place of moderate suffering. Hell is not a pleasant experience, but it would be a survivable experience on Earth for the amount of days most people would spend there. However, once the good deeds resulting from their good deeds exceed their bad deeds, they ascend to Heaven.
Original Sin does not exist, all people posses Original Neutrality at conception.
There are no formal practices. Active worship is not necessary, and the path to Heaven is paved with only good deeds, not meaningless rituals. Religion should not be in conscious thought, only performing good deeds to forward society and the world.
Christmas, Easter, New Years, Halloween, and the Solstices are simply festivals. They are acknowledged as holy days, but should be observed not through religious thought or action, but celebration, trading of gifts, feasting, etc.
