Selection from Haydn’s “Creation”
I mentioned in my blurb this week that the Ascension—this story of Jesus going into heaven—formed the basis of a book I read in a church library that attempted to prove the Bible was proof of alien visitation to earth. I will also say that if a cool-minded, rational person were presented with the choice of the Ascension of Jesus or the Visitation of the Aliens, the rational choice might very well be the Visitation of the Aliens. The Bible is a strange book, although I believe that other book was weirder without being smarter, if that makes any sense. But we should be glad to have this part of Jesus’ story, weird as it is, as long as we can hear it in a way that makes sense.
