Tell Us All Why

“Look at the arrogance of technopoly – the skyscraper, the outside covered with reptilian mirror-like scales. Look at the impressive design of the thing – a box on its end. Now look at a medieval cathedral and explain to us all why you still believe in progress. The flying buttress was a technological marvel, but it was built by men who knew themselves to be such. Our skyscrapers were designed by empty men trying to forget their hollow chests. But it is not easy to forget the imago Dei.”

– Wilson, Angels in the Architecture (p. 178)
