EQ HD vs. National Geographic HD
Last night I decided to watch the free preview of EQ “ideas” high-definition television. I turned on “Christianity Decoded,”. It had some interesting historical points, starting as it did with the Great Schism between East and West when West decided to modify the Nicene Creed, thus, in the opinion of East, turning the Trinity into a Duo. It was entertaining when an Eastern Orthodox cleric said, straight-faced, that it was inconceivable that anyone could change the Nicene creed. And the churches were certainly lavish inside and impressive outside. But the narration was entirely too credulous, so I turned it off. Other shows on this “EQ channel” also sounded pretty religious.
Tonight I watched a show, “Against All Odds,” that tells the stories of people who have made unlikely escapes from danger. After describing the narrow escape, it comes back with, “This miraculous escape can only be explained by science” and proceeds to analyze the physics, medical condition, protective clothing, cool thinking, or happenstance that helped the person to escape.
