history Religion Resurgent by S. M. Hutchens

Quodlibet

Religion Resurgent

Histories of religion and the explanatory theories that accompany them (rife in these days when the Reformation is being celebrated by many) are categorically different from the knowledge of God and reference to him that every man carries within himself and which cannot be expunged, even in the most devoted skeptic. "Religion" can be killed in the flower and the stalk, but not at the root. It keeps coming back because it is part of man. The best evidence of this is found in the skeptic himself, in whom the proposition of what is right always and unavoidably accompanies his declaration of what is wrong. This "what is right" is the unelaborated germ of another religion.

—S. M. Hutchens
