No meaningful public debate over belief and unbelief is possible.

Not only do convinced secularists no longer understand what the issue is;
they are incapable of even suspecting that they do not understand, or of caring whether they do. The logical and imaginative grammars of belief, which still informed the thinking of earlier generations of atheists and skeptics, are no longer there. In their place, there is now—where questions of the divine, the supernatural, or the religious are concerned—only a kind of habitual intellectual listlessness. -- Gods and Gopniks by David Bentley Hart | Articles | First Things
