Truth’s No Stranger To Fiction

Enlightening commentary on how not all truth is fact. To get to the commentary, scroll past the comic. There isn’t really enough of the comic for me to recommend it on its own merits, though I have been following its (slow) progress.

I’ve had this queued for several weeks, and was intending to post it Sunday afternoon, but in a fine example of divine timing this week’s sermon commented on how truth is elusive for mere mortals. I decided to hold onto this until I could also include a link to said sermon. The relevant bit is just past the 20 minute mark.

  1. Hmm, interesting. I really like this quote that spins it around for me:

    “Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed .” – G.K. Chesterton

    Maybe that quote doesn’t necessarily fit in the same thread of the truth of the message, but still interesting way of looking at it. I think the key thing he said in the sermon was that it’s not what is truth, but who is truth. It’s almost like we’re each spinning our own fairytale — subconsciously morphing “truth” with our own perspective and influences.
