I haven’t had cable for quite some time, but we decided to get it again a few days ago. I’ve noticed a ridiculously large number of shows, especially on the science-type chanels, about things like “The Science of the Bible” and “The Science of Jesus”. I can sort of understand why a person might feel the need to find a scientific basis for thier beleifs, but isn’t this counter to the idea of faith? Furthermore, if we read the bible and learn something useful that we can apply to our lives, does it matter if it can be explained with science? The way I see it, whether Jesus was god or man, real or imaginary, there are some great lessons in his parables. I don’t need a dissertation on how exactly Lasarus might have seemed to rise from the dead.
Are these shows always on, or is it special for the holidays?
