The Fool Hath Said...

The Agnostic Bus rolls on, and now, belatedly, it's drawn a Christian response, of a kind. I think the Russian Orthodox approach is preferable - you can't go far wrong quoting a Psalm. The Christian Party sounds a deal too sure of itself (and quasi-political). The smartest response would have been a Christian counter-bus with the simple slogan 'There probably is a God. So stop worrying and enjoy your life.' This exposes the non sequitur of the Agnostic Bus slogan, and goes about as far in assertion as a conscientious believer could in the circumstances. In the end, as Eames says in Gilead, 'Nothing true can be said about God from a posture of defence'.
