gk chesterton

"You cannot evade the issue of God, whether you talk about pigs or the binomial theory, you are still talking about Him. Now if Christianity be. . . a fragment of metaphysical nonsense invented by a few people, then, of course, defending it will simply mean talking that metaphysical nonsense over and over. But if Christianity should happen to be true - then defending it may mean talking about anything or everything. Things can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is false, but nothing can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is true."
                G.K. Chesterton

I'm reading another Crichton book about pseudoscience and 2 Chesterton books are in the bibliography.

This is sort of like recently when my sister said, "you can't use words to explain/defend God because words have no meaning." Well, if words have no meaning.. then how can she even use words to say "words have no meaning.." you know?

This also reminds me of long lunches in a room with Don and Donnie Davis talking Oswald Chambers philosophies...
