Well, it’s happened again. I’ve built up so much that I would like to talk about that the burden of having too much to say has shut me up. Camp ended a week ago today (super challenging and super awesome!), today is the fourth of July (if you haven’t read it in a while, The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy is just begging to be read again!), I have more people contacting me interested in attending church than ever (wow!)… So much that I have wanted to blog about that everything has clogged in my poor little brain.
So, I’m going to take a completely different tack and ignore them all. Instead, I’m going to talk about Morgan Freeman.
Specifically, I’m going to mention the new Science Channel television series, “Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman.” Normally, shows like this one are right up my alley, and my family decided to begin recording them on the DVR (if it’s not on the DVR, we can’t guarantee we’ll get to see it!). We have several recorded now, but haven’t had the time to watch them.
In particular, I’m interested in the first one in the series: “Is There a Creator?” I appreciate it for the fact that it asks the question directly. Usually such shows just dance around the idea without acknowledging that their statements (justified or not) have direct consequences for this most important of questions. In that sense, I am intrigued. On the other hand, for most such programs it seems that, usually, “the fix is in.” Will the show seriously address the question, or was the outcome predetermined by the writers? I actually don’t mind if such programs fail to answer the question, or even if they answer it but incorrectly (the correct answer being, “Yes”). What I can’t abide is not taking the question seriously or taking it seriously but addressing it stupidly.
We still haven’t watched the recordings, yet. Has anyone seen it? What can we expect?
