I just watched a really interesting old twilight zone. It was from Season Five, called the old man and the cave. It was about a small community that apparently survived some catastrophe where as many perished. When the military that was left found the community, the community claimed they survived because of an old man in a cave who told them what to do, what to fear etc, basically an analogy for a god. The military people scoffed at this and planted doubt in their minds. Eventually the cave was opened to reveal not an old man, but a machine. Short time afterwards, the people of the community died and the question was asked, can faithlessness be the humans Achilles heel? Is faith in something like the old man in cave needed because of the greed of humans? Is a story needed to keep us alive?
Bonus question: One argument I see a lot of on social media is between christians. They seem to fall between two camps:
1) christians who are in favor of building a wall and in favor of the current policies on immigration.
2) christians who think this is wrong.
With the division that we are seeing between christians on this and other issues, is the question about faith or lack thereof still a valid one?
