On a Science-Grounded Level Religion 2.0's Great News of Hope is That:
1.) You ARE an important and essential component within the progression of 13.7 billion years of successful universe evolution!
"You are how the universe thinks about itself." Carl Sagan
2,) In spite of how it often now looks with all the challenges facing humanity, our present time is, quite amazingly, the most evolved state of the last 13.7 billion years of universe evolutionary progress and life's evolutionary success that is scientifically known! Be encouraged by the fact that we are at our current known evolutionary peak of universe existence and that all of the challenges that you now face (no matter how they may seem,) are just another part of the normal evolutionary processes of universe evolution as it continues on!
3.) It is entirely reasonable to live with rational hope in an evolutionary future that will continue to both evolve in a progressive direction that will turn out for the good of universe and planetary evolution as a whole. In part, this is because you are an interconnected, interdependent and integral part of the most successful and time-tested system to ever exist --- the evolving universe --- and most importantly --- we are now learning through science how to better self-organize and align our lives and organizations with evolution's most powerful sustainability principles!
4.) In direct alignment and partnership with the unstoppable directional flow of progressive universe evolution you have all the necessary potentials to develop, transform and empower yourself. In a universe evolution aligned partnership with the progressively evolving universe and others you have the potential to transform or adapt to almost any challenge facing you, your family, community, nation or the planet!
6.) No matter how uncertain, difficult and intractable the planet's problems look right now, when the majority of us self-organize and work together with the accurate facts and the proper plan and tools, hope and progress in achieving a better future is always maximized and optimized. Individually and collectively, by using the facts of the sciences, our knowledge of the principles of progressive universe evolution we really can co-evolve more successful and sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles and a better world. These new Sustainable Prosperity livelihoods and lifestyles will not only create a just civilization, but also a sustainable, meaningful prosperity for all! (Creating a Sustainable Prosperity is one of our major evolutionary programs. We have created a comprehensive position paper and program describing its principles as well as how to create it at each level of society.)
7.) You can immediately begin to realize the practical hope that the principles of Sustainable Prosperity offers by actively helping to co-create the The Third Industrial Revolution, which will create billions of Sustainable Prosperity new jobs world wide. (The amazing "new energies through technology," Third Industrial Revolution is described in wonderful easy to read detail in the book of the same name by Jeremy Rifkin. This book's ideas plus the ideas from Jeremy Rifkin's new book called The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, The Collaboration Commons, and The Eclipse of Capitalism is how together we will create a new abundance that we all can all share and that also is in alignment with the meta-principles of progressive universe evolution. Additionally, the massive new jobs creation in the sustainable jobs area that is coming with the Third Industrial Revolution and the new Internet of Things (IOT, ) will create the initial and transitional momentum to move Sustainable Prosperity concepts into the macro culture.)
8.) Humanity and the planet are facing its biggest current challenge --- increasing levels of human-caused cataclysmic climate destabilization, but together we can prepare for it, adapt to it and, with the appropriate technologies and personal actions. we can self-organize and not only lessen its effects we can reverse it before it becomes irreversible. By managing catastrophic climate destabilization we will create a real future for both humanity and future generations. (For all the information on this issue and how we can manage it what we call Job One for Humanity Climate Re-stabilization Plan, begin reading here.)
9.) In alignment with the universe's progressive evolutionary directionality it is your birthright and inheritance to enjoy life’s pleasures each day and make your highest dreams of Sustainable Prosperity a reality. We never know when this life will end and there are no 100% guarantees in life. Therefore, appropriately live and enjoy your life now as well. Enjoy life's journey, you will be in it far more than you will be arriving at life's destinations.
10.) Life's truly unpredictable surprises are intrinsic system uncertainties that are always present and that will eventually become a necessary part of future evolution. Inherent in those uncertainties is always the element of hope --- that anything can happen where ever uncertainty is still present. In the end, all we can do is self-organize and enjoy and build meaning into our lives and do our best in the ways and areas that we can effectively make a difference to forward the evolution of life.
11.) Evolutionary life is resilient. Just on this planet alone life somehow has always found a way to survive the previous 5 mass extinctions. No matter what challenges we face today there is every reason to believe and have hope that we will self-organize in time and evolving live will continue to find ways for at least some part of humanity to survive, thrive and carry on in new generations!
12.) We all exist and are embedded within ONE mutually shared universe. As ONE humanity we all also share our planet and are embedded within its evolutionary processes. From this big picture, "unified reality" perspective of our inherent and shared ONENESS and our inter-connected and inter-dependent embeddedness within the evolutionary processes, when we self-organize ourselves and apply the Universe Principles of Sustainable as our common evolutionary life guide, we can evolve toward co-creating a sustainable planet and a meaningful and Sustainable Prosperity for all!
"A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest—a kind of delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." ---Albert Einstein
13.) We can both individually and collectively self-organize our own better future. We do not need approval or permission to do good in the world.
14.) The new science grounded knowledge and tools that you will find in Evolution 2.0 will also help you answer the most important existential questions about life. These answers are derived from the Universe Evolutionary Worldview. Within it you will find science-grounded answers to existential questions about your origin and the origin of the universe and nature, as well as how to discover what your real and highest purpose in life is. These science-grounded answers will help make your personal life profoundly more meaningful and successful. (If you are interested in seeing these life-critical existential questions and answers now, click here. If not, you can always review them later as well.)
15.) Evolution 2.0's tools and ideas will improve your evolutionary fitness, adaptability and control of your environments as well as help you to function more cooperatively and successfully as groups. (This is the main advantage that makes Universe Evolutionary Worldview practitioners considerably more sustainably successful in life in general and in particular, in creating more successful and sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles.

18.) Human nature is neither inherently bad or good. At the moment of birth, human nature is a clean and neutral canvas. From that point on our education, experience, individual decisions and the values of our cultural environments create or label the good or bad qualities of our human nature and human behavior. This means that as individuals and as a society we can do as much to create "good" (evolution aligned,) human behavior in the future.
19.) There is evolutionary long term hope and possibility that one's consciousness or existence could go on beyond the physical death of the body and/or that the physical body and personality/consciousness might be able to exist far longer and attain near immorality or, one could attain full or partial transcendence over the flaws of human nature through new technologies like genetic engineering, cybernetics, etc, or, even that the possibilities of evolutionary transhumanism can eventually be realized --- where humanity in the future might become the parents of whole new species who also carry on universe evolution with or without us out into the stars.
20.) And finally, if you are of a spiritual nature, it creates more effective and safe pathways for humanity’s individual and collective exploration of Ultimate Reality. Evolution 2.0 has also birthed the new science-grounded Religion 2.0, which provides a personalized form of spirituality based primarily upon progressive evolution principles. Religion 2.0's principles create a whole new level of possibility for the Evolution of religion itself.
"Science is, at least in part, informed worship." Carl Sagan
The science-grounded new evolutionary ideas and tools found in Religion 2.0 offer a realistic and rational new hope for the biggest challenges humanity faces today and the many who feel isolated in today's polarized and fragmented world. Here you will find new practical perspectives and solutions to what just yesterday seemed to be nearly unsolvable social, personal, political, economic, ecological or even spiritual challenges. Religion 2.0 achieves these worthy wellbeing goals above by grounding, balancing and integrating science and even a new kind of religion in appropriate ways relevant to their respective domains and interconnections.
