Christianity is the water we are all swimming it.
This resonates with my contention that much of philosophy hasn’t shaken off its Christian God hangover yet, and that this helps explains why the factual Evolution of our bodies, and our mind issuing forth from there, still hasn’t been assimilated by most living philosophers. That opinion is based on how little I’ve heard its actually discussed by philosophers, (yes there are exceptions).
I have my limited bandwidth, so I’d be happy for suggestions of philosophers who do have digested and incorporated our Evolutionary reality into their talks.
What I find ironic for all the flack I receive, is that when reading scientific authors, their words and ideas are constantly resonating with my evolution centric perspective - then I switch on the philosophers and way too often, it sounds like fingernails being dragged across a chalk board.

Part one of a six part series examining the ideas of Tom Holland, and his wrong-headed attempt to give Christianity credit for The Enlightenment, the Scientific Revolution, and the Secular Humanist values of “The West.”
This might be an interesting series to follow.
