Where the meaning and worth of individual human existence is derived by the accumulation of material Excess and Profit, it is called secular and confined to the physical alteration of the natural world.Secular persons may define their consequence by the accumulation of material property and wealth. The more wealth the more one can purchase perfection. Secularism is based on addition. Worth is evaluated from the bottom, as lowly nature compared to material wealth and sophistication.
Religion is defined as Monotheism. When the meaning and worth of the individual is measured against the non-physical superiority and perfection of God it is called Religion, which is called materialist because the state of earthly existence is considered as a material non-entity, and because it is said to have no integrity in and of itself. Rather it is to be used as material resource for the perfection of the self in the future afterlife.The grace of God is intended to imbue the individual with the possibility of perfection with conditional proper behavior. Religious persons are evaluated by their correspondence with non-physical qualities, as between the materiality of nature and the perfection of God. Because women are more grounded in nature, with requirements of giving birth and raising children, there is ever prejudice against woman, for the perceived inability to achieve the necessary unnatural perfection. Religion is based on subtraction, wherein the individual is always some degrees less than the ultimate perfection of God.
Progressive Materialism can be defined by what is called External Authority. This means the authority for the thinking, speaking, actions or activity and behavior of the individual is external to the self.
