One of the things that I’ve been thinking about and writing about over the last several years is that while the Age of Faith was supplanted by the Age of Reason, we live in a time now when most thoughtful people no longer believe in reason. Although there are still some dead-enders like Sam Harris, E. O. Wilson, and others, the Enlightenment rationalist project is dead, and we’re living now in the Age of Whatever. The battle between the new atheists and the traditionalist Christians is an argument that no longer makes sense. Rigidly traditionalist Christians are hanging onto forms and ideas that no longer have any life in them. Dead-ender rationalists are deluded if they believe that human reason is a trustworthy guide to navigate in a world that makes little or no rational sense. Both sides argue positions that are irrelevant for helping us understand what we're actually living through at this time.
