This little talk deals with the ludicrous New Atheist meme which asserts that is no more rational to believe in God than it is in Santa, or Flying Spaghetti Monsters. As it is Christmas, I begin with a little parable about greed, based on a famous episode of The Twilight Zone To Serve Man.”

I also refer to Bellini’s Madonna of the Meadow; I’ll have reason to return to this painting very soon. We would like to wish Glenabbey Church a Merry Christmas, and to thank them for recording this talk and making it available.
