The hypocrisy of crying for Notre Dame… (And the hypocrisy of modern atheistic world)

Notre Dame!

Burned to the ground.

But it matters not.

For it was burnt to the ground many many years ago.

Ever since when we stopped caring for religion. Ever since we stopped believing in God. Ever since we started visiting Notre Dame to see a monument and not to pray.

For this is what monuments do. From the Greek word “μνήμη”, denoting the function of the monument to sustain the memory of something.

And in this case the monument of Notre Dame sustained the memory of something long dead. God is no longer with us. We are gods in His place. And we do not need relics of the old religion.

Notre Dame on fire.

A real disaster.

Not for religion.

But for tourists.

We have stopped caring for the essence of things a long time now. And our lust for knowledge and art had made us dead.

Notre Dame is destroyed.

So sad. Such a great loss.

Not for religion.

But for the works of art…

Shallow world.

Burning.

Even one true teardrop would suffice to take out the fire…

But there was no one crying…

How could they?

Can the blind weep for a good painting?

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum!
