Sunglasses At Night



Have you ever tried looking at the stars while wearing sunglasses? You will probably be able to see some of the brighter stars and it will still appear beautiful. What if you have been wearing sunglasses your whole life? You would look at the sky and you would never know how much you're not seeing. It would still be beautiful, but you would never know what you're missing. Just imagine that you remove those sunglasses and glance into the night sky for the first time. You will still see what you saw before plus a whole lot more and a whole lot brighter!

This is atheism. It's not that you had a "bad" view of the world before, it's just that you have a better view now! The world is so much clearer and brighter. You can see things that were impossible to see before. It is wonderful and you want, more than anything, to tell all your friends to take off their sunglasses too...

But we all know the outcome of that.

That's a really cool comparison. I kind of want to go stargazing in sunglasses to see exactly what you mean.

Thanks, Dan. I've never actually tried it either. Good call.

it is a very interesting way of looking at it. I like it, I think I will have to try it, or maybe just take my 'specs' off and look at it all blurry like. :)

Love the words; very true indeed, what we would have missed with the 'sunglasses' on all the time.
