Great post Walker, please forgive the brevity of the response, as I’m on a phone.

I’d agree with that edit. We’re all given information, and it’s our choice to file it as evidence of something or as immaterial against the backdrop of a larger belief system (especially if that belief system insulates itself from disproof by asserting that people will never fully grasp its power/meaning). I would agree that often it’s a matter of definition, but that those with faith in things still do look for confirmation — and in fact relish in it sometimes, perhaps because they’re so often required to operate without it.

Like what you read? Give Walker Harrison a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
