The Sea of Faith

Vik and the Heavenly Lights

The Sea of Faith 
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth’s shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled. 
But now I only hear 
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar, 
Retreating, to the breath 
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear 
And naked shingles of the world. 
Matthew Arnold - On Dover Beach

Is this really true? Is the decline of faith some sort of natural law?

Join us to explore the inevitability, or otherwise, of secular humanism in our culture. I promise it will be more entertaining than it sounds :)
