“The God Descends” / Memorable Fancies #1196

[We amuse ourselves by imagining the panic caused by the arrival of God in the church.” – Andre Gide]

     “It’s some kind of trick,” one said, “special effects; electronic stuff.”

     “But then,” I asked, “why is the sky suddenly dark?”

     “No,” said another, “it’s the minister’s kid there, dressed up in some dumb costume.”

     “But then,” I asked, “why is there lightning in the sky brighter than the sun? Why do we see brightwinged beings descending upon us?”

     “No,” a third said, “it’s mass hallucination.”

     And I said, “If I see and you do not, who can say it’s not real?”
