Chris Hedges on the New Atheism

Excerpted from Chris Hedges book on "The New Atheism":

"There is nothing in human nature or human history to support the idea that we are morally advancing as a species or that we will overcome the flaws of human nature. We progress technologically and scientifically, but not morally. We use the newest instruments of technological and scientific progress to create more efficient forms of killing, repression, economic exploitation and to accelerate environmental degredation. There is a good side and a bad side from human progress. We are not advancing towards a glorious utopia."

~Chris Hedges, When Atheism Becomes Religion: America's New Fundamentalists
