If we don't believe in God do we need to fill that void by believing in monsters?
Sure monsters are really glorified in Hollywood and in the movie theaters but is that why its laced into our culture? So if people don't believe in God, why would monsters be the 'new thing'? I mean, there's no concrete proof that Big Foot lives in our back yard, there's no proof that vampires and werewolves are fighting in the sewers like portrayed in Underworld, yet some people would rather believe in that than in a supernatural transcendence. Of course there's no scientific proof of God but there isn't really any undisputable evidence of Big Foot, vampires or werewolves. If were replacing transcendence with science, why is it that our we believe in creatures science can't prove?
