Tom Graffagnino in evolution, original sin, progress

“Original Sin is as much an integral and integrated part of the cosmos as are the laws of thermodynamics and, in consequence, it cannot be extricated or repaired by any man-made progress. We cannot“ progress beyond what we are, i.e. fallen beings made in the image of God, and no technological progress or ideological innovation is going to alter the fact. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose! The more things change, the more they remain the same.”- Joseph Pearce

“Let’s Pretend…”


Let’s pretend we’re “making progress”,

And evolving “higher” still.

Let’s pretend we’re “on the right track”

Climbing upward on this hill.


Let’s imagine “We can do it!”

Ride the wave of Human Pride!

Make believe no Grace is needed

In this darkness where we hide.


Let’s pretend that “social justice”

Is The Way we really need.

Let’s pretend Big Brother’s “with it”…

And his word we need to heed.


Let’s pretend sin’s not an issue…

(And The Fall’s not really real.)

Let’s pretend we’ve got the “right stuff”

To arrange a better deal.
