Epic of Evolution


  Religions are defined and characterized by their narratives, concepts, structures and the methods they use to develop and promote those beliefs. They may also effectively be defined by what they are not or don't do. Author Loyal Rue calls these enabling or ancillary strategies. The strategies of Religious Naturalism are not as yet fully developed but are being advanced by a number of recent publications and individuals. Some of these can be found on the References page.

  Rue writes "At the core of every cultural tradition there is a story, a myth, a narrative integration of ideas about reality and value. The narrative core provides members of a culture with vital information that gives them a general orientation in nature and history. The narrative core is the most fundamental expression of wisdom in a cultural tradition". The narrative core of Religious Naturalism is the  Epic of Evolution . See this site for more details.
