‘How We Waste Our Faith’

I admit it now: Tuesday I was too keyed up, and yesterday I was too depressed, to write my weekly Newswithviews column. After all, the only story in town was the election–and what could I have written that wouldn’t have been obsolete and out of date overnight?

But I thought you folks out there might want a Newswithviews column anyway, so here’s one from the last day of 2015:


Yeah, we waste our faith on unworthy objects of worship. People who think the Bible’s just a lot of silly stories believe every word they get from science fiction; and physicist Stanton Friedman says we ought to believe in UFOs because people who’ve been to college believe in that.

Win a tin-foil hat if you can think of any argument feebler than that!

  1. It is troubling to me that people are so emotionally wrapped up in Sci Fi that it has become a pseudo faith. People have imagined that some of these stories have a life of their own. Sadly, tragically, the line between what is real and what is not becomes blurred. No wonder we have a society that is rudderless.
