The Postmodern Umpire

apologetics workshop

from Ravi Zacharias’ Facebook page:

Walter Truett Anderson humorously gives us an insight into our postmodern culture in his book, “Reality Isn’t What It Used to Be,” comparing our predicament by presenting an analogy from baseball.

A pre-modern baseball umpire would have said something like this, “There’s balls, and there’s strikes and I call ‘em as they are.”

The modernist one would have said, “There’s balls and there’s strikes, and I call ‘em as I see ‘em.”

And the postmodernist umpire would have said, “They ain’t nothing until I call ‘em.”

In brief, all reality is subject dependent and the postmodernist frames reality by naming aspects at his or her whim.
