Passing in the Murk

Filed under: General — m759 @ 11:00 AM

Introduction to a review of two books in
The American Interest , June 17, 2014:

“A believer and an atheist seek out their antitheses.
Do they meet somewhere in the middle,
or pass in the murk of half-baked pseudo-syntheses?”


“Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, passing in the murk.”
