Notes From Babel

The Human Need for Religion Hates a Vacuum

with one comment

I stumbled across two stories today that provide anecdotal evidence for something I’ve suspected for some time: that the decline of traditional religion will occur contemporaneously with the rise of a replacement “religion.” Compare this post noting the decline of religion in America, with this article noting a contemporary trend of “baptism” among atheists.

That “replacement religion” I have described before as “scienceism.”

  1. Not only will science-ism replace traditional religion, it will do so by force where necessary.
