More on darkness ...

... Hitchens on Mother Teresa's Dark Night of the Soul. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

This is pretty much right on the money: People like Hitchens and Dawkins and Dennett simply don't understand religion, which is why what they have to say on the subject strikes those with some understanding of it as so tedious.

The comments are quite good, and don't miss the link to Moonrise.

  1. Hi Frank,

    The argument gets down to a little "scientific" experiment that we all take before we call ourselves Christians. We each accept Jesus into our life. It's a prayer we do, however we pray or conceive of such a thing. What follows, is a relationship.

    This is replicable, and each of these science-oriented detractors are welcome to be a subject in Jesus of Nazareth's great experiment. But they must stop talking and swallow the pill.

    Right now, they are like old scientists who are saying that they do not believe aspirin is a pain reliever. They need to take it to relieve the pain, and then tell us how they don't know quite how it works.
