I’ve read a book in the last year that presented a concept that just keeps bouncing around in my mind. Very simply, it’s just the idea that as man evolves, socially, mentally, technilogically, etc, his felt need for God, or any supernatural or beyond for that matter, diminishes.
This seems to explain so much to me. It seems so obvious, that for all our achievement and technological advancement, in some ways, it’s worse for us.
I can’t imagine living without a computer and the internet, but 10 years ago, very few people were online. Now, it’s stranger to find somebody who’s NOT online.
Communication flows freely, right? And yet, now, we just have new and different ways in which to misunderstand and miscommunicate with each other. Sounds like progress, right?
