Two Entirely Random unrelated reflections

I.

I’m coming to think the really interesting thing about theology is not what any of it says about God, but how people try to verbalize their belief, and what the attempt tells us about the person and the culture in which said person operates.

II.

Walter Cronkite used to end his nightly news program by saying “And that’s the way it was,” followed by the date.

It was never really “the way it was”. But it sounded so much more authoritative than the truth. Which was, is, and ever will be:

“And that’s the random crap we selected because it keeps our ratings up and makes our advertisers happy”.
