The Place For Religious Argument

There is no authority in religious wisdom, only advice – despite the demand of clerics and devotees.

The use of religious, moral, historical and empirical argument is always the same:

In the absence of clear choices, if the empirical fails, the historical fails, then the moral and religious are the best-tested experience that we can rely upon.

The meek will not inherit the earth. But for the meek it is good wisdom that they should act in their long term interests anyway, as it will always, as a group, advance their interests against the strong.

There is no authority other than consequence.

Consequence in the now, soon, later, and long term.
