Pós-Ateísmo

"... atheism is the brief pause between exhaling biblical faith and inhaling Something Else ...

Atheism tends to achieve, not a shiny rationalist society, but a spiritually ignorant (and deeply hungry) population that will latch on to anything in its desperation to fill the God-shaped hole in the heart.

... That's why Russia has not only seen a big return to the Faith, but a huge growth of fascination ... about UFOs, New Age crap, horoscopes, divination, and all the rest.

Humans are incorrigibly religious. They are not, however, incorrigibly Christian...

... A culture that turns from being strictly materialistic to being a culture of Materialist Magicians is not a culture that is automatically re-Christianizing. Such a turn may be a first step toward Christ but it can just as easily be a first step toward Moloch ...

... we .... must not slacken in our duty to bear witness to Christ."
