The Meaning of Data

Information. Lots and lots of information....
H/T to Deacon Greg at The Deacon's Bench.

The problem with technology, as shown in this video, is that we know the data, but have no idea what it means. "And the word became flesh and dwelt amoung us..." (John 1:14). The logos, the word, the data, became flesh and dwelt amoung us. So what does it all mean? The meaning we are looking for is in Christ. Unless we give the data flesh and blood, the data will be all there is. Data tells us facts about our world, we must put that information in context. We need to master the data, or we will be mastered by it. We have the tools of theology and philosophy. Let's get to work.
