Interview Part 1

[38] Question: What is to be said to the present status of the religions?

[39] Answer: In a highly changing world the requirements for religion shifted essentially. Globalisation, scientific progress, individualism, habits and routine of the day demand for new answers. [40] So are e.g. questions again to pose concerning rituals: Do the present rituals have still the significance like in former times? To what extent is the personal development promoted by rituals? Are there rituals that place subordinate above L? [41] Beyond that is to be asked, how which core components of religion are to be classified and be developed further.

[42] Question: Should these considerations be combined with a unification of religion?

[43] Answer: The unification of religion is a difficult task. Rigid and highly from each other differing religions are difficult to unite. The solution of this problem can be based only on voluntariness. [44] There is no cause to judge or transform certain religions. The present religions can continue to exist and yield a long tradition. The unification can only mean to point out and offer new perspectives.

[45] Question: Which crucial innovations are to be called here?

[46] Answer: The personal development mentioned above should come to the fore. The means necessary for it should be adapted to the modern knowledge. That means, however, a perhaps stronger change of religion than so far. [47] The basis of those who participate in the development of the religion should be as wide as possible, without ignoring, however, the necessary qualification for certain tasks.

[48] Question: Is a reference to L necessary?

[49] Answer: Here is to be worked with probabilities. The conception is very improbable that the world and its laws develop (and developed) automatically and without regulating element. Also in the daily events more regularities attract attention, which have - non-scientific - law character. To this belong déjà-vu-experiences, rare foreordinations, occurring forebodings and the like. [50] Furthermore reports, in which L showed zerself somehow to man. L should not be negated, therefore. On the other hand, counterarguments exist. Here is to mention in particular the theodicy - thus the question for good and evil in the world -, in addition, the (missing) intervention of L.

[51] Question: To what extent are differing opinions to be permitted?

[52] Answer: Everybody can have zis own opinion. However, elaborated points of view by a reliable and comprehensive process are to be emphasised. This process is done by differently qualified people with democratic procedures. Each process result is thus qualified and obtains the associated significance.

[53] Question: Which presuppositions does such a procedure have?

[54] Answer: Criteria must be established who or what qualifies oneself how whereby when. Furthermore, qualification levels must be specified. Example: The answer of the authenticity of an old religious text can require a scientific background. This presupposes the familiarness with certain methods. Thus, the familiarness is to verify for a professional appraisement of the problem. [55] That means not the necessity for appropriate university studies, but the proof of the method knowledge. Since we will learn always more modularly in the future, also appropriate learning and qualification ways result.

[56] Question: Thus, non-qualified are the odd one out?

[57] Answer: By no means. Who does not have the demanded certificates, can approach to the qualified via appropriate boards or directly. Such cooperation can conduce to the projects, since elitist circles are avoided. Without wide basis, an appropriate research work can fail.

[58] Question: What constitutes a good religion?

[59] Answer: To offer many humans the desired and more. With the aid of future knowledge structures one can retrieve the requested information and built up to an individual answer formation. [60] There are no more a relatively small number of religions with more or less firmly added structures, but an individual knowledge pool with a less special basis. Here proved remains proven, so that certain today's forms of religion remain regarded.

[61] Question: Can there a "roadmap" be outlined?

[62] Answer: The new techniques of the knowledge representation are at present in development. The structure of the knowledge and the creation of qualifications are the next step. For this, it requires the establishment of acceptance. The construction of an efficient and modern world language, which is used by as much as possible, is a further desirable step.
