Mediaeval Christianity said to t
Mediaeval Christianity said to the race, Man, thou art in thy earthly life an evil thing & a worm before God; renounce then egoism, live for a future state and submit thyself to God & His priest. The results were not over-good for humanity. Modern knowledge says to the race, Man, thou art an ephemeral animal and no more to Nature than the ant & the earthworm,a transitory speck only in the universe. Live then for the State & submit thyself antlike to the trained administrator & the scientific expert. Will this gospel succeed any better than the other?
