Secularism has been promoted as the ideal throughout the 2oth century. Naturalistic science and reason have left no room for God as the Neo-Atheists have proselytized their faith in an accidental world. The roots of such secular thinking were nourished by the writings of Jean-Paul Sarte and Friedrich Nietzsche who was famed for coining the phrase "God is dead."
Yet, a new academic study is claiming that humans are intrinsically transcendental, or that humans are hard-wired for religion. Obviously this doesn't actually answer the question of whether God exists or not, and certainly doesn't that God is the Christian God, but it certainly supports Theism. "Is Secularism dead?"
However, if Neo-Atheists are right that God is a delusion, this study seems to reveal that religion is actually an epidemic of world-wide psychosis.
Even the rise of Post-Modernism, for all of its defects, defies the modern idea that "secularism" and a godless world is the Truth. Instead by allowing for different perspectives of what truth is, it has once again given a voice to Theists and Christians for God's existence.
Regardless, it would seem that Oxford University professor Roger Trigg (co-director of the three-year Oxford-based project) rightly concludes that this study shows that "The secularization thesis of the 1960s...was hopeless."
Researchers even found that "people who hold religious beliefs might be more likely to co-operate as part of societies." Additional Quotes from the Researchers:
