There is no such thing as (spiritual/intellectual) Growth or Progress.
There is no forward or backward.
There is only adaptation to fluid circumstances.
Belief, faith, ideology, politics, etc.. are all temporary, contrived and held and asserted for brief moments when it's convenient to do so.
Strip it all away and what’s left is instinct.
The human animal is only as predictable as the circumstances in which it must navigate to survive.
Politics, religion, ideology, etc... are all formal costumes we must sometimes wear to get about our business.
Which also negates the notion of good and evil. But that's a topic for another day.
