Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, a self-described techie and Vatican astronomer, argues in a new book that a nerd is not necessarily a nihilist, and geeks can and do believe in God.

Actually, there are quite a few of us in the geek realm who are also Christians.

very interesting analogy. So, THAT’S why we can’t find an appropriate church?

Even scientists, when they come to the end of their studies, come up empty and wondering.

Some come to Christ; some don’t.

There is no other answer!

But in some churches, that community support may be lacking, especially if the techie individual is unmarried or far from family.

This is one thing that I run into. Since my job moves me about ever 4 years, it is sometimes difficult to form community with the church, especially for people who get intense talking about their job. I am blessed that I am now in a bible study (24 months) that in letting me form closer relations with people in my church.
