I knew that he was here on Cyprus on some business between the Hospitallers and certain well-placed and powerful gentlemen on the island. Perhaps Geronde told you all this... But when I got here,' Brian said, 'Sir Francis had already left again for the headquarters of the Brotherhood, which has long been elsewhere than the hospital they found in Jerusalem, in the name of St. John of Jerusalem, whereby, of course, comes their name of the Hospitallers. Their proper title at present is the Order of the Knights of Rhodes.

'Is there any cure? Any immunization?' queried Lourusamy.

It would be an enormous positive act of environmental improvement on behalf of the whole community of life.'

'Excuse me sir, but as an ecogoth I must disagree with your flagrant humanism. It is one of the central findings of ecogothic science that all human actions that affect the environment are intrinsically harmful. This must be so, because human motivations are by nature homocentric rather than cosmocentric. Therefore, your claim of a possible positive cosmic environmental role for the human species is a clear self-contradiction. Furthermore . . .'

Rebecca rolled her eyes in disgust. 'Ecogoths. Noir-minded adolescents striking an ultra-environmentalist 'cosmocentric' pose. Antihumans would be a better term.' " [More.]

[Afterword by author] "I have a dangerous vision. I see capitalism once and for all overthrown; truly overthrown, not just replaced with a new power structure just as fawning upon scientists and just as exploitative of them and their fake charisma as ever was the old. The only kind of socialism of communism I'm interested in is one that makes science and scientists look a bit ridiculous, to be humored, maybe, but never taken in by; never catered to, always kept in their place. Humanism--and if communism isn't humanism, as Marx and Engels defined it, it is nothing--is incompatible with scientism. "

'He said UFOs are a sign that ours are the Last Days of the West,' Levine said.

Gilray crossed his arms over his chest. 'Was he born again?'

'Not that you'd notice.'

Humanism USA 2076 Morehouse, Lyda. Archangel Protocol. New York: Penguin Putnam (2001); pg. 3. "Anyone else not on the LINK was either a dissenter or couldn't afford the process. America, as my letters to the editor often lamented, was no longer the home of democracy. We were becoming, instead, a theocracy, and had been since the last Great War, twenty-one years ago. Science, which had brought an ugly end to the fighting by producing and detonating the Medusa bombs, and the secular humanism that spawned it, had fallen so far out of favor that it was not officially a crime not to be at least nominally part of an organized religion.

Dissenters, mostly secular humanists and atheists or people like me, who were forced out of a recognized religion, made up the bulk of my clientele. However, as dissenters, they didn't have a citizenship card--no card, no LINK; no LINK, no access to commerce; no commerce, no credits. Not even my shady landlord would take home-brew or other barter in lieu of real rent. It was credits or the street. "

"Asgard, still the home of the gods, had grown to encompass all the shimmering towers of Babel ruled by latter-day magic, called logical positivism. The gods had faces and voices: American, European, Asian, African, the masters and mistresses of a bountiful harvest. Their politics did not signify, capitalist to socialist to nihilism; their religion did not signify, humanism to mysticism to atheism. There was no single Odin, instead a thousand thousand of terrible ones... "

Despite endless predictions, Jesus had not shown up again, nor Mohammed nor the Buddha, at least as far as he was able to judge.

"The face that popped up on the vid was the first surprise: One True, for some strange reason, had decided to look like Dan Rather, or like Harrison Ford--then I realized it was probably an intermediate morph of the two. Kind of what everyone wanted an American president to look like back when there had been American presidents. Lots of signs of having lived and thought and felt, none of which it had done really, if you were a hardcore humanist, which is what I was trying to be while I talked to the thing. "
