    god is supposed to be the all-being and all-knowing. If hes so great and modest why does he let people praise him with craziness. If there is a god i dont think he is as good as people make him seem.

    If there is a God, he's one hell of an underachiever.

    My apologies to Woody Allen for stealing and mangling his line.

    Hmmm... Woody's a genius. I watched Manhattan again yesterday while I was all laid out. Favourite line: "You look so beautiful I can hardly keep my eyes on the meter."

    Elaborate. And I'd like to know your basis for claiming this. Show me your universe.

    Tell me, if He were less good, what would be His motivation for making you?

    Tell me a joke, Darfius. I want to see what your sense of humour is like... If you don't mind...

    I am incapable of joking about a God who entered this world and suffered excruciating (word made for the pain he endured) pain and death for love of me. Just want to explain why I rarely do here.

    In other matters, I'm pretty funny.

    Five presidents are on a plane. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

    George Washington says, "I'll make someone happy!" and throws a dollar bill off the plane.

    Then Abraham Lincoln says, "I'll make five people happy!" and throws 5 one dollar bills off the plane.

    Then Thomas Jefferson says, "I'll make 500 people happy!" and throws 500 one dollar bills off the plane.

    Then George W. Bush says, "I'll make the whole world happy!" and throws Bill Clinton off the plane.

    Not bad, except you should reverse the order in which you use Dubya and Clinton in that joke and it would probably go over much better...

    Jokes about God aren't so bad, Darfius. Especially if it's a Woody Allen joke. Did you not get the joke and thought wib was being serious or were you just chastising him for making a religious quip?

    Think about it, Dude. God (or Christ) may have suffered here on Earth for a relatively infinitesimal fraction of time, but mostly he's completely omnipotent, all-powerful and dwells in a supposed paradise in the sky. He's got it good and I'm sure he won't mind a few jokes here and there...

    I'm Republican.

    He lived 33 years. That's not really infinitesimal. And I honestly cannot think of a person who suffered a more horrible death.

    And He suffers everytime you or anyone else rejects Him when His handiwork is all around you.
