« Damned if you do. Damned if you don't. | Main | Barbara Nicolosi: The DVC movie is "embarrassingly bad" »

I think some people really just are clueless about the Christian faith and the implications of an alternate history.

It reminds me of an interview I heard from Mars Hill Audio, by the author of "Consuming Religion". His comment was that we have so commodified religious beliefs that they no longer, in our culture, have the logical content we - who take them seriously - expect them to. The result is that people can mix and match beliefs from various religions according to their taste, w/o feeling the tensions or apprehending the contradictions involved. Similarly, some will interact with a story like TDVC and just will not make the connections.

It could also be a symptom of understanding "faith" as a mere "belief-tradition" rather than a "knowledge tradition". The latter deals with facts, while the former is relegated to the land of wishful thinking, and trusting in spite of what reason dictates.
