EVOLving religion is an ethical EVOLution: LOVE

In the modern world, religion is not really important for an ethical person. The human ethical

values: love, support, tolerance, humility, generosity, perseverance, prudence, patience,

forgiveness, understanding, optimism, solidarity, happiness, freedom, peace, faith, justice, silence,

honesty, responsibility . . . are resources in people, whether or not a person practices religion. It

should not mark the individual. Religion does not make people good or evil. “They are most easily

and effectively developed within the context of religious practices of course; but it is not a

precondition of ethical conduct” (Dalai Lama, 1999).
