Divine Providence for the secularists

here: "[Progressivism supplies] all the delights of believing in Divine Providence without the nuisance of believing in God."

I'm not sure if you bothered by people commenting on old posts, but I thought you may be interested to know that the quote is very similar to a G K Chesterton line concerning the evolutionary mindset that inspires faith in the dead hand of Progress:

"Progress is Providence without God. That is, it is a theory that everything has always perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle."

I'm not bothered at all; welcome.

And, thank you for the quote.
