I’m featuring some selected new Christian blogs from 2010, proceeding in random order with precedence given to ones that were submitted earlier.
I was fascinated by Adrian’s account of a meeting with pagans at Long Beach Community College on the Noumenal Society of Apologetics blog. He (I assume Adrian is a he) said, “Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction,” and yet this is California. I lived in southern California for thirteen years and experienced some of that strange truth. My wife and I were hiking in the Anaheim Hills and heard what we thought might be a troop of boy scouts with drums in the woods ahead of us. As we drew closer we realized it was instead a band of pagans, thirteen of them, beating drums and chanting praises to earth, air, fire, and water. It’s not just California; we ran into something similar in Sedona, Arizona, a town known for such things. Anyway, Adrian’s story brought back memories.
We didn’t get involved in conversation with these pagans, but Adrian did, and ran into that most baffling of all experiences: person who denies the law of non-contradiction. What do you do when faced with that kind of illogic. Adrian’s analysis of the problem is sound (very reminiscent of Ravi Zacharias in the final paragraph). Getting that across to this particular pagan was another matter. I appreciate Adrian’s initiative to listen and to share the truth, not only in this but in other encounters he describes in other posts.
I wonder about the Noumenal Society of Apologetics. It’s an intriguing name. If only I still lived nearby, I’d like to drop in on them.
Adrian pointed to a blog post on Inception as one of the better ones of the year. Alas, I have not seen the film and I couldn’t sort out all the references he was making to it. It made sense as far as I could make it out, but I didn’t try to dive too deep into it.
