But the secular substitute is still inadequate//Why there is no way back for religion in the West | David Voas | TEDxUniversityofEssex – YouTube

We have pointed repeatedly to the decline of ‘religion’ in the West, but the fact remains that the ‘secular’ viewpoint is lacking in coherence and has become a very limited world view based on scientism and a shallow psychological foundation that cannot address the concerns behind religion. The latter won’t go away and encompass a whole range of ‘belief spectra’ that a bureaucratic modernity will attempt to replace with ideological conditioning. Religion will pass but the questions of religion remain in place: the question of atheism/theism, the occult, the human will and freedom, the nature of consciousness, etc… Academic sociality is unable to resolve these issues although it is a resource for educational liberation.
Consider the question of darwinism: secular culture has proven incapable of debriefing this pseudo-science while the Bible Belt no less has seen through its limits (with its own creationist muddle).
That is an indication that the era of Feuerbachian humanism was stillborn and failed to really grapple with post-religion’s existential realities.
