Modern atheism is almost entirely a reaction to Christianity (and to a lesser degree, Judaism). Atheists focus their ire on Christianity, not on Thor or Zeus. But in their attempt to reject Christianity, they wind up either borrowing from assumptions that fundamentally presume some sort of supernature, or by insanely rejecting those assumptions and making themselves madder still. So. You can pretend you are not doing this if you like. In which case, I will simply change the terminology slightly and point out that you are borrowing from "supernaturalism". It makes no big difference to me fo[r] the point is still the same: Materialism is in ruins the moment you admit the existence of something beyond nature.Just one reason why chez-ami is on my daily reading list.
