Thaw Thinking

March 10, 2009

In 1989, when the Berlin Wall was hammered down by delirious Europeans I was 25, which means I grew up in the intellectual deep-freeze of the fading quarter century of the Cold War. During the 1990s there were signs of thaw, but it was only the combination of the new millennium and  successful terrorist attacks on New York, that great European city of the Americas, which woke the West from its intellectual hibernation.

The corpse of theism has been twitching, creating political havoc and doing its best to prevent free inquiry, but a new confidence in the ability of 21st century human beings to creatively order their own affairs, free of the dogma of the iron age, free of the disingenuous slanders of 20th century theism (blame for the crimes of  Catholic fascism and Christian-heresy-Marxism), is gaining hold.

Well, I didn’t intend to start this blog in such grandiloquent style but since i have precisely zero readers I may as well let it stand.
