The Modern World Isn’t Even Remotely Secular

The link below is to a post by the amazing Spenser Alexander McDaniel, the second half of which describes, quite accurately, the secular religion of the U.S. of A.

In the first part he debunks the claim that religion in the U.S. is dying out.

If you are at all interested in ancient history, this is an important blog.

The Modern World Isn’t Even Remotely Secular

Oh, we not only have a secular religion, but a class system, too.

Maybe an approach for the future is to counter Christian religious claims with the tenets of the Religion of the U.S.A. This would surely immerse the religious zealots in a vat of cognitive dissonance, if nothing else.

  1. I really enjoyed this long but excellent article. Thank you.
    I’ve always been interested in “why” most people are religious or believe in this rather major force in the lives of almost all world citizens, regardless of upbringing, culture, education, as opposed to a true “atheist” who believes in none of it..no woo…zilch.

    But yet we often believe in food fads or natural healings or conspiracy theories, like the mainstream one of who really killed JFK?

    All in all, we seem to all be capable of believing things that cannot be proven as true or even logical. And it might have something to do with information overload, desire to fit into a group to assuage loneliness or insecurity or just,plain laziness.

    Lots to chew on and think about.

    • Conspiracy theories at least have some basis in reality. We have been betrayed by our own government. The CIA has hidden things from Congress and others, etc.

      Religious beliefs, on the other hand, are more than a bit far fetched … really far fetched.
