Here’s that book: Science Made Stupid.
Advanced mathematical thinkers are a wonder. And in today’s consumer- and tech-oriented culture, those who can contribute to our trinkets are the new Cardinals and Bishops of the Progressive Church.
And that’s not to diminish esoteric thinking, advanced mathematics, etc. But it has led to an atrophying of man as a moral creature as technicians shove aside the traditional and needed avocation of moral reasoner. And that’s not to be confused with being a good creature. We should all remember St. Augustine’s famous line: “Lord, make me chaste. But not yet.”
It’s not about being a goody two shoes. It’s about being adept at understanding this world in terms other than the purely physical or self-serving. It has been the evil Left who has used the Alinksy tactic of destroying people via their own standards. With decades of this acid drip, now no one (or very few) think of presenting a true moral outlook because they don’t want to be called a hypocrite, for who is pure enough to “judge”?
No important moral outlook can come from atheism/materialism. This is why you have this increasing “Men without chests” factor:
“We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.”
The entire idea of moral virtues has been downgraded. What passes for High Moral Thinking springs from little more than the corrupt politics of the day. It has not necessarily always been so.
We are living in a technologically rich but morally bankrupt culture.
