Monday's Apoc-Eclipse Liveblog
Tyler, I'm no theologian (to say the least) and I didn't sleep at a Holiday Inn last night anywhere near Jerusalem or the Vatican (or even Lourdes), but I did have a radiologist father (participant in the Manhattan Project) who did take me to New York's Hayden Planetarium once a week as a boy. And from that I remember expositions of eclipses from all over the solar system (other planets have moons) as well as other systems across the universe. In other words, millions or zillions of eclipses, partial or full, are constantly happening across the great space-time continuum. Hard for us to wrap our minds around, but there it is.
Reason I mention this is that I am worried when we get too human/Earth concentric with the conception of God. Maybe it isn't all about us. We're just part of the GRAND GRAND scheme. Bringing this down to the "all politics is local" level, it has always struck me that part of the motivation for the anti-scientific Global Warming Madness is the naive belief that it is "all about us." Humans cause everything when they cause very little, again in that grand scheme of things. I'm not going to go any further because I fear I will be sucked into a black hole.
