ExoTheology & Space-Age Interpretations of the Bible

(religious implications of an inhabited universe)

“I had a pit inside me,” a friend said, “and then I saw it was a galaxy.”

Open my lips, O Lord, and my mouth shall proclaim your praise. Closing my eyes, I see a void shot through with dots and dashes of light, untempered by time or space, as if the universe had turned itself inside out through my mouth. “I had a pit inside me,” a friend said, “and then I saw it was a galaxy.” Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.

— from Lindsey Crittenden’s “The Water Will Hold You” (in Jonathan Cullick’s Religion in the 21st Century, p. 31).
