This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

The false honesty of agnosticism

One response to the difficulty we are dealing with is that which is offered by agnosticism, which pretends to be a humble admission of our inability to know. It is admirable to admit the limits of one’s rational knowledge but at the same time it is soul-destroying to deny the expression of our most important questions simply because the reason cannot supply adequate answers. It seems that to be an agnostic one has to have already accepted a dogmatic rationalism, that every agnostic is an implicit rationalist, and not only this but even this dogmatism is betraying with a fallacy, since the claim that we are unable to know anything of the supra-rational order is one that cannot be verified rationally.
