Does Life Have a Purpose?
Benjamin Sledge

Another great read; I especially like drawing the difference between enlightenment and entertainment, and yet still citing Westworld as evidence of the questions running underground.

This article reminded me of a quote from a blog I read years ago, and happily I was able to find it:

“…the fact that religion and theology cannot provide a technology for explaining how the material world works should not be held against them, either, for that is not what they do. When Christopher Hitchens declares that given the emergence of ‘the telescope and microscope’ religion ‘no longer offers an explanation of anything important,’ Eagleton replies ‘But Christianity was never meant to be an explanation of anything in the first place. It’s rather like saying that thanks to the electric toaster we can forget about Chekhov.’” (emphasis mine)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
