Some people who have seen the movie Avatar are experiencing depression, having to return to the ugliness of the "real world" after seeing the paradise of a CGI world. After hearing about the horrors of Haiti an escape to Pandora (or Middle Earth) may seem a welcome thought. This depression seems to me to be a longing God has put in us for our true home. This world is not as God intended, it's not the way it is supposed to be, but it has become broken, corrupted, pollutted by the Fall, by human sin. And so we yearn to return back to the Garden, but with that not possible, we look toward a new world someday that God will fashion when Christ returns.
