An atheist who lost his faith

The science to which I pinned my faith is bankrupt. It’s counsels, which should have established the millenium, let instead directly to the suicide of Europe. I believed them once. In their name I helped to destroy the faith of millons of worshippers in the temples of a thousand creeds. And now they look at me and witness the great tragedy of an atheist who has lost his faith.
