Resurrection From The "Dark Ages"

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." - George Bernard Shaw

The Philippines is a primarily Catholic country in which you ethically step back in time to the "dark ages". Men volunteer to be crucified (usually not to their death) in almost every Philippine town during Easter. Water buffalo are made to kneal before the church. People often flog themselves bloody. The need for consolation and forgiveness of sins is extreme. Their "merciful" God, commands supplication! How much sensual love and affection can exist in culture where sex is a "necessary evil" for making babies (their social security) which then inculcates cleansing as "original sin"? The notion that sex is natural and necessary for evolution is incomprehensible to all but an educated few. Predictably, they have an overpopulation crisis (birth-control is viewed with contempt) and environmental crisis (what environment?) and economic hardship (it's God's test). Of course, desperation is the breeding grounds for religious fanaticism everywhere.

"Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions." - Albert Einstein
