"While I’m not a believer myself, I often wonder at such professional atheists who cover themselves in the mantle of 'science,'" writes Scott Locklin of Taki's Magazine about "that sanctimonious gasbag Dawkins" and his ilk — When Man Invented Science. "Don’t they know any history?" he asks. "Modern atheists with no sense of history like to think of the Church and religious people as the forces of darkness, but in reality, the Catholic Church was the birth of the light of reason."
Front Porch Republic's Peter Haworth on a story whose "theses about the decay of morals and the arts resulting from the decline of supernaturalism can be elaborated upon by reflecting on the insights of Flannery O’Connor and the Southern Agrarians" — Rising Scientism, Declining Supernaturalism, and the Loss of Taste and Morals in W.G. Simms’ “Grayling”. "Through such examination of these works, we see a profound case for respecting the mysteries of the supernatural and not being diverted from this by modernity’s concern with scientific naturalism."
