Deus Ex Machina

MSNBC: Christian game developers seek to put God in the machine, while thinkers like Thomas and Clark say that the notion of God is already there. Differing opinions, but both hold a core belief: A game’s influence doesn’t end when you turn off the console.

And on the subject of weird religious stuff: Boy dies in “healing” service; death ruled homicide. This is the kind of stuff that really burns me up. First of all, don’t kill people. Stop doing that altogether. Secondly, don’t kill someone and then say, “God wanted him back.” This was an 8-year-old boy with a medical condition, for crying out loud. I believe in miracles and healing, but I don’t presume to expect anything from God on my terms.
