Touchstone: Lost in Space

My latest essay, available in Touchstone magazine:

“It turns out [C. S.] Lewis was largely right… We do know that space is full of “stuff” — it’s just not the kind of stuff that is readily detectable by human senses. And here is the catch: If we are sailing on a cosmic sea, we are (mostly) blind sailors, we cannot see much of the “empyrean ocean” around us with our naked eye. {…}

Christianity presupposes something different: a universe in which God has established the laws, and also in which he still plays a part, loving the little gods he has made to live in this landscape he has sculpted. Like the choreography of scene and actor in the best plays and ballets, man and his world go together on a living stage.”
