Instead of worshiping the God that transcends the finite world and which grounds all of existence, much of society now worships ideologies, nations, politicians, celebrities, athletes, sports teams, consumer goods, drugs, or the sexual act.
Or, humanity now treats technology or science as ‘new gods’, believing that their advance will usher in a ‘utopia’ and perhaps even grant us ‘immortality’.
All of these false idols pale in comparison to the true progress our species can make with the divine.
This video explores the phenomenon of religion, the concept of God, and whether a religious revival could heal many of the ills that plague modern society. .

— Iain McGilchrist, The Matter With Things.
