Wow. Professor Edward Slingerland at Asian Studies UBC (plus 50 researchers!) has just received $3 million to study how religions have cemented moral behavior around the world and whether social agencies or government can replace religions as sources of connection and shared values – like in some scandinavian countries. As a recovering Catholic I find this a very interesting question. It seems that more people are leaving formalized religions in search of more open and inclusive spiritual practices.
