ELSEWHERE: Progress and Materialism–The Hopeless Adventure

A curious thing happens when two atheists realize that man worships himself and that knowledge without God tends to lead us into Cartesian absurdity.

The other decides “progress” is a delusion caused by our evolution into narcissistic animals, and the first guy tears into him for it.
