Apologetics is not the study of Battlestar Galactica

Though I am watching the Battlestar Galactica miniseries (the new one) on DVD and while I'm put off by some of the "look, we're doing something naughty on TV" element of it, so far it's a brilliant re-imagining of the original cheeseball series. Plus, Edward James Olmos has some serious gravitas.

But, to quote "Airplane", that's not important right now. What I do want to do is point you toward an incredible post on someone else's blog:
Thank You Josh McDowell (sort of) on Dan Kimball's Vintage Faith. (You may recognize Dan as the pastor of Vintage Faith Church or as the author of one of the best books on the emerging church, aptly titled The Emerging Church.) His blog is as thoughtful & graceful as his books.

Apologetics, by the way, is a "theological big word" way of saying "how to intelligently defend our belief in God."

Battlestar Galactica = best show on television. Also, it has more theological themes than any other show on tv. Not simple themes either; they are complex and thought provoking.

It is my favorite show right now!

Wasn't that the show that had the LDS overtones? I can't remember, just was thinking. Ciao...
