How anyone can fear what they don't believe (what's not there) I don't know, but - if it finesses your job at FOX News - O.K. by me, Chuck:
“There was once a philosopher who said, ‘I don’t believe in God, but I fear him greatly.’ That’s about where I am,” the author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics” said. ”I’ve had a fairly difficult and complicated notion of the deity. If I tried to explain it I would simply say — and this is by no means associating myself with the greatness of the man — but I would associate myself with Einstein’s conception of God, which was a recognition and an awe before the mystery of the order and beauty of the universe, which would imply that there is something very mysterious and very awesome — awe-inspiring — about the universe.”
Fair enough - you fell from a horse.
At about the age of four, I saw "the universe" throw my devoutly Christian, and most beloved, foster mother from a Merry-Go-Round.
It was, most definitely, not a moment that filled me with "awe"...
