Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If we, as a species, are to survive and flourish for another 850 years our common culture has to evolve to the point where we, collectively, are effectively able to assume responsibility for directing our own evolution, both genetic and culturally, hopefully mostly culturally, in ways that are sustainable.

Millennia of projecting that responsibility onto some culturally created deity have left us ill prepared for such a task. Divine Providence is well past its sell by date. Believers seem impervious to the obvious incompatibility of a theology that posits a deity that is omniscient, omnibeneficent and omnipotent with observed reality.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
