I do like that Caputo discusses talks about being told what is right and wrong. He questions how the “addresser is authorized.” Going back to find the origins of how this person has the right to tell us what is right and what is wrong. I am all for questioning authority; that is probably why I don’t really like the “Leap of Faith.” You are just to follow blindly and trust you are doing the right thing?

I guess that goes hand in hand with what I don’t agree with. I’m not sure I agree with Caputo that we ever had communication with the heavens. He talks of how the satellite no longer gets reception. I think we can be inspired by a greater-being, but not sure we were connected that much. If we were what caused us to not need communication? Did we do something that went against the broadcaster? Is that why we can’t hear the message anymore?
