  1. The experience of the person I am in the world—my consciousness, my life, and the physical world in which my conscious life appears to be set—these phenomena comprise a Stupendous Given. There's no getting around them and no getting outside them and no accounting for them from within the phenomena themselves. These phenomena point to something beyond themselves. The attempt to account for these phenomena from within the phenomena themselves has given rise to science, art and religion and the whole cultural adventure we call "civilization"—the long human struggle for purchase on the Stupendous Given. In the end, however, the only account that accords with reason is the account that infers to a Stupendous Giver. In sum, from the existence of consciousness, the existence of life, and the existence of the physical universe, the inference to the best explanation is God.

    Do you recognize this man?


    This is what atheism looked like not so long ago.


    NOW FAST-FORWARD FIFTY YEARS...

    And get a load of the New Atheism:



    "Quick, send in the clowns...
    Don't bother, they're here."

On the Uptown 6


Always one's sense of humanity—

on a NYC local train

until it passes beyond the midtown express stations

the hub stations where many get off

and every car jam-packed with people of every description

and most of them strangers

all heading in the same direction for ten or twenty minutes

for ten or twenty

Pharisees on Hollywood and Vine


So the other day I run into this Old Yank Boomer I know, nice guy, always liked him,

and he gets his panties in a twist about a movie I said I liked—

I mean, he's having a calf over this, making a scene right there on the street in broad daylight!

Who is the third who walks always beside you?
When I count, there are only you and I together
But when I look ahead up the white road
There is always another one walking beside you
Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded
I do not know whether a man or a woman

Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.

We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion
Through the dark cold and the empty desolation,
The wave cry, the wind cry, the vast waters
Of the petrel and the porpoise. In my end is my beginning.

― T.S. Eliot, East Coker
