The ancient World may seem far removed, but really it's just that the gods have new names today. As then, some people have come to the conclusion that the best way forward is to admit that we don't know, that our ways have failed ... and that if there really is a God he will have to prove it ...
See "Casey Gerald: The gospel of doubt" here:
"(For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)
Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD." (Acts 17:21-23)
