A Cautionary Cosmic Tale
Is it mankind’s destiny to evolve into a godless society?
An astronomer climbed Mt. Improbable on a crisp, moonless night. He used a telescopic computer to count the celestial bodies in his 360-degree hemisphere. Meanwhile, one trillion other scientists, droids, or unknowable energy manifestations, also tabulated their respective numbers, many without equipment. When completed, they sent their data to a cosmo-central terminal. The cumulative number was not significant enough to register on the universal curve of knowledge. Meanwhile, scientific Scrooges like Carl Sagan, Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking have proclaimed that Jesus is a hoax and they, not God, are the most intelligent beings in the universe. 88% of the world’s population disagrees with them. 95% of the US population believes in a “Higher Power.” Approx. 2.5 billion Christians will celebrate Christmas by attending church, reading the Christmas story in the Gospel of Luke, reading (or watching) Dickens’s “Christmas Carol,” Schultz’s, “Charlie Brown’s Christmas,” or simply enjoying quality holiday time with family and or friends. Religious leaders of the world have made (and continue to make) egregious errors, however, the Christmas message of, “peace on earth, goodwill toward men,” remains as a socio-cultural compass for those who try to comply.
“Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.”
