Tonight on the National Geographic Channel: “The Story Of God” with Morgan Freeman, episode 5 – Why Does Evil Exist?. 9 pm ET / 8 pm CT. Check your local listings.
I’ve been trying for a couple of days to write a post for today and I just can’t seem to put together anything of substance. Was trying to write about evil to be in sync with tonight’s episode but I sure as heck don’t have a clue as to what the answer is so nothing to write on there. Also didn’t want to start a big debate here on the topic, I’ll leave that for the experts. And nope, I’m not ready to reveal to you all of my dirtiest secrets on the evil acts I have committed in my life. I will tell you I flip the bird on occasion to other drivers though just so you are reminded I am a perfuctly fecked up human.
Instead I’m just going to give you a few links to explore the topic for yourself in advance of tonight’s episode airing …
* note – this guide is for the entire mini-series, not just tonight’s episode. I just read it myself this week and thought it might be of interest to some of you who are following the show along with me.
* another show with Morgan Freeman I wasn’t previously aware of. Not currently running but I found some interesting bits here, ie. some discussion on why people lie which seems fitting for tonight’s topic.
And my links wouldn’t be complete without another diner one …
I like to see the difference between good and evil as kind of like the foul line at a baseball game. It’s very thin, it’s made of something very flimsy like lime, and if you cross it, it really starts to blur where fair becomes foul and foul becomes fair.
