>There are people among us that still believe in a dead white man being their divine salvation.

Rec me a book (fictional) that drags Christianity through the dog poop. I need some rehabilitation.

Like a vehemently a-religious Dickens or John Kennedy Toole.

Kierkegaard, Evola, Schopenhauer, Thomas Merton

Your problem is with the shallow literalist Christianity of Walmarts and minivans. There is a very rich, passionate, and intellectually rigorous tradition lurking right under the surface. I'm not even Christian, but I agree wholeheartedly with the Christianity of Kierkegaard and Merton. Evola and Schopenhauer are just for dismantling the shit out of naive Westboro-tier christianity

Why does his race matter at all. Is it supposed to be twice as damming because he is dead AND white? Good bait if it was intended that way.

dude you can't doubt that Christianity played a very large part in shaping the current western world and that it remains the backbone of our society culturally. You can feel its immense presence in literature, which this board covers, to this very day. If you want to be a contrarian you can pretend like this is not the case. Aids is not very comparable and you know it. You got me to respond however, so kudos to you.

Greek philosophy and literature if we focused more heavily on that instead would've been much better off. There was tons of culture before the abrahamic religions, even ignoring the hugely impactful Greeks. Your religion could easily have been ignored for the better. Here's your reply.
>>
>>7587891
We did focus on greek philosophy and the farther away from Christianity you go the less relevance Greeks have for fucks sake.
>could have easily been ignored
Write a fanfic about that, I'm sure reddit will make it a bestseller.
>>7586183
Anyway maybe Plato's religious dialogues on piety?
Hume and Hobbes possibly. Nietzsche, Camus and Sartre.
Honestly there hasn't been much good anti religious literature.

I know his stuff isn't fictional, but literally anything by Hitch.

I'd stay away from Dawkins, but Hitch was fantastic.

Neoplatonism is the bedrock of much of Christian theology, including Aquinas and Boethius. Even Nietzsche called Christianity "Platonism for the masses." Greek philosophy and Christianity have a long history together.
