Something You Might Have Missed While Reading Harry Potter

Mark Shea points to an Times article listing "impossible to answer" questions that British children ask their parents about life and God and everything.

And then he provides some really fine answers. No. 17 I find particularly well done. I might quibble a bit with some others, but this is another example (alongside this, for example) of how to answer simple questions people (in this case children) have about God.

By the way, read the comments on the Times article -- it might seem uncharitable to call many of the commenters "a bunch of angry, bitter freaks," but that does seem to accurately summarize the tone . . . Good thing from the sound of it most of them have no children to ask them those questions (yet).
