The New Faith

I am at my daughter’s birthday party the other day, chatting with the father of one of the girls.

“So, what do you do?”

” I teach at the U. of R.”

“What do you teach?”

“Physics”, expecting his eyes to glaze over.

“Oh, You must be smart”, unexpected response.

“I suppose so.” Not sure how to respond to that.

” So…Do you believe there is someone up there?” pointing to the sky.

“You mean God?”

“No..No way. UFOs man. You think there is someone looking down at us?”

“I don’t know. May be. …I have never seen one”
