For decades, many progressives would say they were agnostic and not atheistic. At least one philosopher is trying to close that escape valve. “To demand proof of love, of God, as the agnostic does, is to reject love and to reject God,” Thaddeus Kozinski of Wyoming Catholic College writes in an essay which appeared in The Imaginative Conservative. “This is what Adam and Eve essentially did in distrusting God’s love.”
“They had no ‘reason’ to reject it. This is why the consequences of their actions were so grave—and all of us are mysteriously bound up in their original distrust. We sinned with them. They were the first agnostics.”Kozinski is Academic Dean and Associate Professor of philosophy and humanities at Wyoming Catholic College.
