Men and women have always been trying to create something that can replace God. Up to a few hundred years ago, we built statues and temples and worshiped those. But, they didn’t satisfy. They weren’t really awe-inspiring. They weren’t smarter. They didn’t talk. They didn’t interact. They were nothing but bits of stone, wood and metal.
A few hundred years ago we discovered the worship of ideas. “Isms” proliferated, Communism, Socialism, Nihilism, etc. Everyone built an ‘ism’ and behold, they thought it was good. However, a lot of our isms have fallen. They’ve become unsatisfactory.
