Who says it better?  Eagleton or Eddie?

“There is a sense in which replacing a transcendent God with an omnipotent humanity alters surprisingly little, as Nietzsche scronfully pointed out.  There is still a stable metaphysical center to the world; it is just that it is now us, rather than a deity.  And since we are sovereign, bound by no constraints which we do not legislate for ourselves, we can exercise our newfound divinity by indulging among other things in that form of ecstatically creative jouissance known as destruction” (Reason, Faith and Revolution, 15).

Pearl Jam, “Do the Evolution“:

I am ahead, I am advanced
I am the first mammal to make plans, yeah
I crawled the earth, but now I’m higher
2010, watch it go to fire
It’s evolution, baby
