"To urge the natural against the supernatural"

THE eighteenth century has been called the Age of Reason; I suppose there is no doubt that the twentieth century is the Age of Unreason. But even that is an understatement. The Age of Reason was nicknamed from a famous rationalist book. But the rationalist was not really so much concerned to urge the rational against the irrational; but rather to urge the natural against the supernatural.”

~G.K. Chesterton: The Well and the Shallows.
