Although the term 'Dark ages' is connected (wrongly) with the Middle Ages [see here for more on that], the truth is that today our time is more dark.
We live in the era of world wars, of communism and the millions of its victims, of eugenics (now disguised under the veil of "genetics"), of depression and alienation, of psychological disorders, of the surrender of the the control of our life to machines (yes, people have died because they listened to their GPS), of worshiping matter, of our dehumanization in general.
In these dark ages, we still think we live in the light.
Denial, is after all the main symptom of a heavy disease.
The only way to see the light is to redefine what we have defined.
We hate believing into anything, except in the axioms of science.
We like questioning everything, except the foundations of our beliefs.
We like proof, except when it leads to God (see Gödel).
We like data, unless they are against what we believe. (see evidence for God)
We hate religion, except when it is Islam or Buddhism.
We worship logic except when we disagree with it. (see here)
We fear death and yet we see life as a random accident.
We consider the belief in the creation of life from lifeless matter as scientific, even though we do not know how and why this could happen.
We believe in parallel universes, but we deny to accept the existence of spirit which shouts inside us every passing day.
We believe in the creation through randomness and yet we strive every day with science not to leave anything to chance.
We believe we are not important and yet our every single action denotes that we are so much arrogant that we think we can understand and control the world.
In our effort to fight anything religious, we lack consistency.
In a world of cowards, this is the first thing gone...
We are the children of our fathers. And we do not even see it.
This is not a philosophy post.
This is more of a wake up call.
And no one likes wake up calls.
