(The following is for those members of our community of a spiritual nature. You do not need to be of a spiritual nature to be a part of our community.)
The Purpose of Religion 2.0 and the Evolution Spirituality movement both on Earth and eventually out into the stars and universe is:
a.) To educate individuals on how to use the core meta-principles of progressive evolution to improve the success of their daily personal lives in practical ways.
b.) To teach individuals how to both align with and contribute to the progressive evolution of humanity, the planet and the universe. (Here progressive evolution has a very special science-grounded meaning. (Click the following link if you are not sure of what progressive evolution means. You may not be able to see this rich meaning until you become more familiar with our Evolution 2.0 materials, (which is also a foundational part of religion 2.0.)
Once the full meaning of progressive evolution is understood within our fully unpacked mission statement you will find that it includes most of the life-affirming goals of almost every religion that has existed. And,
c.) To help guide humanity in consciously evolving its own human biological and cognitive nature and consciously giving rise to humanity's evolutionary successors and "children." From a big picture evolutionary perspective humanity as a species appears not to be an end unto itself. By looking at the evolution of the planet it is clear that humanity as a species has appeared due to the rise (and in many cases extinction,) of many predecessor species. It is therefore only logical and reasonable to believe that humanity as a species will give rise to humanities evolutionary successors --- just as humanity's evolutionary predecessors gave rise to it.
Part of the possible steps in giving rise to humanity's successors would be for humanity to transcend its limiting biology and the current limitations of its mental abilities --- what we normally consider its mostly-fixed human nature. The transcending of human nature may even be considered a new kind of freedom that only is being articulated for the first time here in the 21st century because, we now have the actual ability to begin achieving it.
This new freedom is freedom from the limitations of past, pre-determined inborn genetic limitations. Inborn genetic limitations can include everything from genetic defects, to built-in and hardwired emotional responses that are no longer appropriate to today's life conditions and environments --- to limitations on the cognitive processing abilities of the brain itself.
This freedom can also include freedom from current physical limitations through mechanical and biological augmentation. Already, it is common in society for individuals to get artificial hearts, hips, joints, arms and many other mechanical or biological enhancements to help them resolve or enhance current physical conditions or remedy limitations. (For more information on this click here to learn more about evolutionary transhumanism, and then click here to learn about overcoming the limitations of human nature with new technologies and the appropriate safeguards.)
Human nature initially evolved solely through the mechanics of genetic evolution. Once humanity started creating culture, human nature started evolving quicker because of the values, laws, education and the repetitive practices of cultural evolution. Because of cultural evolution, human nature was civilized and evolved for faster than just the random genetic mutation that pure genetic evolution could ever achieve.
Now humanity has the opportunity with the proper safeguards to speed up the evolution of human nature as never has been done before by also using the new technologies of genetic engineering. Just as cultural evolution speeded up the evolution of human nature humanity also now has the ability to speed up the evolution and development of human nature by wisely using these new technologies.

This mission of forwarding of the progressive evolution of you as an individual, the groups in which you are embedded, humanity and the planet and the universe is amazing because it is the most basic supporting foundation upon which all other goals can emerge and can be wisely realized over time!
(Please Note: Accepting all of the above evolving human nature issues also as part of a higher mission for you, the universe and humanity can be challenging to all that you have ever read in modern goal books that focus their advices on life's core goals being first about individual human happiness and comfort and getting what you want. But, if you learn more about why our mission above is about the larger, more powerful and effective truth that also includes all of the smaller important truths and your important personal goals please read a brilliant new book called, Human Purpose and Transhuman Potential: A Cosmic View for our Future Evolution by Ted Chu, PhD. In inspiring and motivating factual detail you will discover why you might just be able "to have your cake and eat it too.")
