Data Guardian Angel

Tech support folk sometimes give up in despair over unexplained PC glitches. Now there is a guardian angel to the rescue. It is analogous to a child who breaks apart a favorite toy and turns petulant because she does not know how to put it back together. The parent is supposed to turn it magically whole. The child reposes absolute faith in their ability to do so.

Maybe we've gone so far with technology that it's complexity overwhelms us. We would rather have God save us from harm. With the USB angel science and faith have converged far less contentiously than the intelligent design versus evolution debate.
