The Googlewhack Adventure

emoticon:dove I've just finished watching the Googlewhack Adventure by Dave Gorman.

It is very funny. It's not your usual standup comedy, and absolutely hilarious. Maybe slightly geeky, but hey. Smile

As a mild aside, creationism plays a minor walk-on part in the adventure, which is kind-of, sort-of what led to my last post... Just thought I'd mention it.

Science or God ?

emoticon:exclaim Science enriches my faith. Creation enriches my faith.

I can stand in a field, the breeze causing velvet ripples in the tall grass and the sun causing everything around me to shimmer with life. I can gaze at the stars, the unquenchable blackness that may be infinite or may just be beyond my comprehension.

I can see images of far off nebulae, distant clouds that condense stars in their fingertips. So vast that they as well be mythical for all that I can understand them.

I can read of a quantum world so odd and so elegant that no magic can rival it.

All this speaks to me of God, of a majesty so utterly beyond me.

In worship I can touch holiness. A purity that is beautiful, that holds no guile, no deceit, perfection. It is terrifying. It exposes who I really am. But it is still beautiful and it is in me, around me, in those I share this hope with.

Modern science claims to be in conflict with religion, or perhaps religion claims to be in conflict with science. But my religion tells me that the goal of my life is to learn not be selfish. That true fulfilment is to be found in a love that genuinely wants to serve others. This is the same holiness that I touch in worship, how beautiful. If only I could do more than aspire to it, to glimpse it.

How can this detract from humanity. How is this in conflict with anything genuine ?

But it is the opposite of religious dogma and law, an anathema to it. The bitter irony is that this is the very thing that Jesus stood against in his day. He opposed the teachers of the law, who oppressed the poor and put burdens on others that they would not carry themselves. He called them whitewashed tombs, snakes in the grass, the blind leading the blind.

So please never mistake ignorant, dumb religious law for Christianity.

The Old Blog Archives

There was so much ancient wisdom distilled into my old blog, that I couldn't let it just creep ignominiously into the pages of cyber-history. More to the point I'm still getting some hits from google with the old entries. Here are the archives of my previous Blogger based blog.
