A brief history of Carl
William Eamon on six
centuries of secularism. “Most historians agree that secularisation took
hold in the period known as the ‘early modern’ – the era between about
1500 and 1750, when science, capitalism, religious crisis and the growth
of centralised states coalesced to reshape Western consciousness.….In
1535, a Frankfurt printer named Christian Egenolff published the
booklet Kunstbüchlein (Skills
Booklet)….Another, far more famous, Renaissance how-to book
that changed the course of history was Niccolò Machiavelli’s The
Prince (1532) – a deeply pragmatic text about how to gain
power and keep it.”…. [contra Weber] “Freed of ‘superstitious’ magical
rituals, religion became a matter of internal conviction. But this claim
is dubious. Technical literacy, then, led straight to Weber’s
‘disenchantment of the world’. It was a direct consequence of those
how-to books that translated mysterious craft secrets into simple
rules….Weber’s concept of charismatic leadership offers some insights.

within secular (both atheist and humanist) spaces since the New Atheism

I coined the term to classify a
self-contained community of socially unaware atheists who reside within

is overly wowed by the low bar it requires to recognize the inadequacy
of the God hypothesis. Meanwhile, in many ways, they preserve or

had failed and three vibrant faiths stepped in to fill that
vacuum…..Evangelicals, meanwhile, resisted the encroaching
pluralism…..evangelicals now accepted Catholics and Jews as important
allies in the fight against abortion, feminism and gay rights…..The
short career of Judeo-Christianity has already lasted too long.”

as manipulated by corrupt elites, who play the Pied Piper to the masses.

if you want to be religious, keep it personal and tolerant, avoid
tendencies toward institutionalization beyond the level of local charity
