Our convictions, however much they may be thought of as the conclusions of arguments, are often heavily indebted to environmental factors we fail to perceive because we are too close to them,” Dale C. Allison, Jr., writes in a revised and expanded version of his 1995 book The Silence of Angels. One of the factors we do not see provides his somewhat surprising thesis: Modern man’s separation from nature is a cause of secularization, rather than merely a symptom or result of it.
