Thank you Mr. Vonnegut

I have long enjoyed reading Kurt Vonnegut’s work.  I certainly differ from him in many respects when it comes to world view, but I think he managed to do about as good a job of conveying his message simply and effectively in a way that the average person could grasp as any writer in recent history.  Though an extremely odd place to glean any spiritual insight, his description of the Tralfamadorians view on time really helped me think through the way that God stands outside of time.

For those of you who are interested, there is a great excerpt of an interview done with him here.
