No, really, this is probably the least absurd thing that will happen in 2020.
The fundamental premise about the nature of realty that philosophers call realism permeates almost all human belief systems, including religion, science & spirituality.
Religion without dogmatic authority, spirituality discarded as a selfish abstraction, and a source of all creation that has no power, no plan, no desire and no will.
When we assign preternatural forces to aberrant deeds and/or individuals we blind ourselves to the actual causes and their solutions .
From God to Nature, human beliefs in external, omnipotent and omnipresent forces are essentially the same and have lead to authoritarianism and human-on-human force.
