For every person that died as a result of the production of nuclear energy 4000 have died producing coal. This graph blew me away. It did not blew me away because of my complete ignorance of the deaths as a result of nuclear power. I know a lot about nuclear power and the deaths associated with it. I was surprised because the facts had not been presented to me side by side. I had only known part of the story. I knew of the terrible effects of nuclear energies but did not know how dangerous coal or oil was in comparison. The facts had been skewed by media hype and political agendas.
If I am not careful my spirituality and search for God can be redirected in the same way. Books and messages form our perspective of God. The problem is not that we learn less of God from books. The problem is that we are getting one person’s limited perspective of God.
