Jabberwocky is so fantastic that the image provides no handle on the reality that many do worship god as a real being, no matter how metaphorically they wax like Armstrong does.


Ah. That is an interesting perspective. The sign of a good blog entry (like Miranda's) is that it encourages debate.

I would argue that most people really have no idea what it is that they worship, so substituting "Jabberwocky" for "God" would have no effect. "God" is simply what they want him to be, which is why the substitution of a nonsense word is appropriate.
