What goes around, comes around. All the natural law of cause and effect works. Human beings don't have to do anything, it just happens!
So the judgement of a good man may be found somewhere in the natural law of 'do no harm' to be in God's grace.
Mankind is the only animal that thinks that he is special as an individual and that he comes under different laws than the lower (and I smile ) animals. Humankind is actually only the fittest because of their ability to work together as a group. And this ability manifests itself in all kinds of different ways and these ways create the Psycho-Social Dynamics of the both the group mind and the individual mind.
Religion is just "one" of the manifestations of mankind attempting to work together as a group . The problem begins when religion (or philosophy for that matter) incourages the individual and working together as a group is nolonger the main focus. This then creates conflict between the individual and the group and we have a break down of the group focus.
All conflict is the result of the battle between "I have to promote me", as an individual, and the group. The individual fights to be an individual and the group fights to "maintain the working together as a group", because that is the only reason that mankind/humankind is the fittist to survive.
No I don't think these concepts can or do replace the natural law. Natural law is more based upon our own free will choices and how they manifest right back at us in their own energy path.
Nature is about material conditions. Natural law has the spirit in place as well.
Ok, just for fun, lets say that I am a medium and I am channeling Nietzsche:
"What you are calling "natural law" is a a figment of your imagination and does not actually exist. What you are calling "natural law" is a concept that was created by "Religion" for the sole purpose of promoting religion and religion is an artificial reality that can only be maintained through propaganda."
"The "fittist" do control the world. The "fittist" are the "wealthy", and these wealthy have the highest potential for the survival of their offspring."
And just suppose....without any religious following.....causes we put into operation through our thoughts, words, deed reap the consequences of the effect of their actions. That is not about the fittest. It is about cause and effect in a natural manner.
Silly story....I was driving to a city next to mine one time to serve a congregation gathered there. The road was under construction and we all ended up lining up for our exit. Except, of course, for those arrogant people who will drive up the free lane on our left to get in front of everyone else. They are entitled right? NOT.
In my anger, I made a comment to the effect of not liking that kind of driving and would never let that type into the traffic when the time came.
The next exit was mine and off I went. I had 2 blocks to get over 3 lanes and in a city of all one way streets it was imperative to make the right turn. Guess what? You got it! No one wanted to let me in either. LOL
Cause and effect.
