By the end of the 19th century, almost all the great writers and artists, and intellectuals had abanied Christianity, and many abandoned belief in God altogether. This was partly the result of scientific discovery, particularly the work of Charles Darwin in “The Origin of Species”. English writer A.N. Wilson’s 1999 book “God’s Funeral” demonstrates in such diverse lives as those of Gibbon, Kant, Marx, Carlyle, George Eliot, and Sigmund Freud, the dough about religion had many sources. HERHG Chair John Hawkins will be talking about “God’s Funeral”. All Welcome.
