Who knew Norm Macdonald was this deep? No seriously, this tweet about how the Enlightenment turned us away from Christianity is not only powerful but spot freakin’ on especially so early on a Thursday.
The Enlightenment turned us away from truth and toward a darkling weakening horizon, sad and grey to see. The afterglow of Christianity is near gone now, and a stygian silence lurks in wait.

And of course, Norm tweeted this and a whole lot of anti-Christian harpies showed up to screech at the comedian.
So…you’re against THE ENLIGHTENMENT? Really? The invention of the printing press- ? The scientific method? Knowledge?

Tell that to the victims of the inquisition and the various native americans who were subject to genocide for taking christians at their word.

When i was a christian i too hated progress and knowledge, thought "things were better in the past". thing was, they weren't. They were far worse, with far more suffering. Our ethics and how we treat people are far better now, no thanks to the Church which fought progress

Gotta love the ‘there is no God’ crowd.
Oh wait, no we don’t.
The rise of science over superstition did not, in fact, turn anyone away from truth.

Interestingly enough, none of the people busting on Norm for his tweet seemed to realize they were all but proving his point for him.
