Hmmmm. I can't think of anything. What does Orthodoxy have? Also Dostoevsky is adolescent literature so he doesn't count. Is Orthodoxy intellectually bankrupt?

No, it’s the height of mental stimulation for their pea brains to run through the same list of outgroups every day to give themselves the only dopamine shot in their miserable lives, even if it’s only in the form of fear and hatred.

Orthodoxy has Dostoevsky.

They were ethnically Jewish but it's weird to list them since they weren't religious Jews while the other 2 categories are religious ones. They were Jews who didn't practice Judaism.

Reminder Pascal's pensees were on the index of forbidden books.
Catholicism is a business first, a religion at best third or fourth.

Proust had a typical French Catholic upbringing, from what I've read. He doesn't seem to have practiced that much as an adult, though.
Indeed, on his mother's side.

>> No.17598479

Every time I read Pascal's Pensees I start to half-seriously believe in the Christian God. Idk what it is about that text, just the way he wrote it maybe, but it's so incredibly convincing and alluring.
