God, Man and Katrina

I watched Channel 4’s documentary The Trouble with Atheism. I assume my secular fellow travellers in the blogosphere will take it and its presenter, Rod Liddle, to task for its myriad stupidities, misrepresentations and annoyances so I can leave them unremarked (except to point out that, with no offence intended, John Polkinghorne is a good scientist, but not “one of the greatest theoretical physicists of the Twentieth Century”).

Now I’m watching Spike Lee’s masterful documentary on Hurricane Katrina, When the Levees Broke. Any faith in god’s nature or man’s systems should be gone by now. All that’s left is a random and unfeeling world and the strength and heroism of individuals in the face of it.
