NEO-PAGANISM: TURNING FROM THE LIGHT BACK INTO THE DARKNESS
"The strain of modern Humanism which comes down through Feuerbach, Marx, and Nietzsche can be called Promethean Humanism, after the figure in Greek mythology who stole fire from the gods and gave it to man...As Nietzsche saw clearly, it was not only a matter of not believing in God, once God had been denied, man could achieve true freedom only by denying all moral constraints on himself and inventing his own morality. The human will alone will become sovereign. James Hitchcock, What is Secular Humanism.
But a culture that is comprised of countless wills that believe they are sovereign breeds chaos-- unless the populace succumbs to the tyranny of one man's will. Either way man's invented morality can never compete with God's sovereign absolute truths. Thus it is easy to see how neo-paganism is capable of destroying civilization as we know it.
"Lo! thy dread Empire, Chaos! is restor'd; Light dies before thy uncreating word: Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall; And Universal Darkness buries All." Alexander Pope
