How Do We Explain The Sacred?

hands raised 22 copy 2

Many people under the influence of science, and particularly neuro-nonsense, will say the sacred is an old concept, it’s just a hangover, but you can easily see that’s not so, because everyone has a sense of desecration: there are things everybody values which, when they are spoiled, are not just moved or destroyed, they are desecrated. Something that is vital not just to you but the world.
– Roger Scruton

The sacred exists and is stronger than all our rebellions.
– Czeslaw Milosz

If a man loses his reverence for any part of life, he will lose his reverence for all of life.
– Albert Schweitzer

In a culture which is in full flight from the sacred, the practice of desecration becomes a kind of moral necessity.
– Roger Scruton

Is there any up or down left? Who gave us a sponge to wipe away the horizon? Will lanterns have to be lit in the morning hours? What sacred games will we need to invent?
– Friedrich Nietzsche
