Lyle Smith is a 93-year-old lawyer who has read and seen much history and he notes a growing displeasure with Capitalism. In the past when one civilization gave way to a new one it was usually followed by a new religion.
We need a common goal for our life on earth and we have not outgrown the need for religion but our concept of God needs to be more closely associated with what we learn from science and less tied to ancient stories. Smith is not suggesting a new religion, we have active religions now and he hopes they will learn to cooperate in offering guidance on how to live on earth, while continuing differing faith practices and hope after death. He also thinks Jesus? message and example of how to love our neighbors and ourselves can enrich all religions.
