Right, testing my understanding of reformed recon again. Given the accepted idea in reformed recon that even if a perfect codified religion existed and it could be recreated in the modern western world it would need to be changed raadically to suit its new environment. In reformed recon should people still look to say brehon laws or something similarly old for ethics?

My thinking, for my personal practice, is people shouldnt look to old books for a lot of reasons that they should look to the traditional culture for ethics and values *if they have that interest*. In Ireland for me thats Traditional Irish Culture which is not the high culture, in the US I would think the High Culture would be perfect because its broadly accepted.

I came to that conclusion because Ireland had no codifed pagan religion probably a result of us never developing a centralised government that facilitated its creation. Even up 'til the 17th century. The only half codified version that exists was created by the Christian church as a by product of their religions dogma. Our early paganism wasnt distinct separate part of the culture, it was a part of everyday life and thats why it survives at all. Cos of that it was the culture that provided ethics and virtues in pre christian Ireland as it did in christian Ireland and as it does today. Given that culture is an unbroken line from pre christian Ireland wouldnt it be best?

Outside Ireland wouldnt it be better to adopt ethics and values respected in your own traditional culture? After all anything you bring into the culture will have to reconcile itself with its new place anyway.
