Great post.

I always thought Nietzsche's claims about what might follow the death of God were completely overwrought, but I'm starting to wonder now. A form of life without the secular placeholders of religion does seem much denuded to me. American air ports and train stations used to sometimes approach the sublime because they were designed by people who knew something of reverence and very old religious architecture. And people thought it worthwhile to spend the money to achieve that.

If I had more talent I'd do the thing Glaucon at the first metablog used to do when he'd rewrite a poem or song in a satirical way. I'd take Larkin's "Church Going" and alter it into "Book Reading."
