Hamlet looking for Shakespeare

With the exploration of space again in the news we recall that the first words sent back to earth from the astronauts who had circled the moon were the majestic opening words of the Bible, ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’ This was in contrast to the Russian cosmonaut who returned from space and reported that he had not seen God. C.S. Lewis responded to this by saying that was like Hamlet going into the attic of his castle looking for Shakespeare. Lewis also said that he believed in God as he believed the sun had risen, not only because he saw it, but because by it he saw everything else.”
As Richard Rohr said, ‘Humility and honesty are the same thing. We all came along a few years ago, and we’re going to be gone in a few years. The only honest response to life is a humble one.’
