    If you write for God you will reach many men and bring them joy. If you write for men you may make some money and you may give someone a little joy and you may make a noise in the world, for a little while. If you write only for yourself you can read what you yourself have written and after ten minutes you will be so disgusted you will wish that you were dead.

    - Thomas Merton, from New Seeds of Contemplation

    Colbert: God lives where we don’t know stuff

    Click on the image to get an earful of Colbert on O’Reilly, God, and the tides

    Snark is usually not accepted here at psnt.net, but this is Colbert and sometimes exceptions just must be made. Although they surely did some creative editing of O’Reilly‘s comments, there is a serious point buried in this clip: God does not live in those places where scientific knowledge gives out. That God of the Gaps idea is remarkably prominent in this old world of ours — think Intelligent Design — and we at psnt.net are among those who’d like to stamp it out real good. Just like, we presume, our man Colbert.

    A big Thank You goes out to Alert Reader Matt Rich, who brought this video to our attention. As for everyone else, keep on sending us interesting stuff when you find it. The Internets are huge, and we here at psnt.net are oh so tiny.
