Modernism tends to dismiss anything that came before science as worthless.
But religion and philosophy are about life and how we live it.
And this was as true in 3000 BCE as it is today.
Scientific knowledge informs our worldview and our vision which helps to dispel superstition and ignorance.
But the way of the heart is as ancient as humanity.
Science ignores the human dimension of life.
This is why modernism failed.
But Egyptian religion, the Buddha, Jesus and their successors all recommend the way of the heart as the answer to life's problems.
And this is as true for modernism as it was for them.
