De Void
Is Religion E.T.-Proof?
by Billy Cox

There's a wonderful Passover seder scene from Woody Allen's
"Crimes and Misdemeanors" in which the pious patriarch is being
challenged by less devout members of his family. "Sol's kind of
faith", says one, "is a gift. It's like an ear for music or the
talent to draw. He believes, and you can use logic on him all

"And if all your faith is wrong, Sol..." begins another, to
which Sol interjects, "Then I'll still have a better life than
all of those that doubt... If necessary, I will always choose
God over truth."

As the week's events have reminded us once again - and how many
more vats of blood do we need to wring from this tired mop? -
blind faith can make this planet a criminally stupid place to
live. The zinger is that with libraries of knowledge at our
fingertips, the evolution in communication technologies is
proving just as efficient at reinforcing viral ignorance and
bigotry. Or maybe it's just hastening the inevitable.
