If I could reduce the question of our age to a simple comparison, the academy is still trying to produce wisdom lit of low offense, while i produce natural law, and the hard sciences produce physical law, regardless of offense. The reason the academy could replace the church was that they produced wisdom lit in every possible fictionalism, and did not produce natural law – and did so because there was a market for falsehood (wisdom lit) an no law prohibiting its sale.
