This video talks about how Our Lord goes to extraordinary lengths to create the illusion that he does nothing. Why? Because he can do anything! [4:20]
Haha – obviously a variation on “George Dubbyah Bush isn’t really an absolute moron, he only pretends to be to prove to others than he can act like a complete moron.”
One word: Poe. Right?
But it’s good anyway.
Maybe God is bullied in the playground of the Gods by Thor and Odin so he is hiding somewhere. I recently saw a cartoon which went along these lines: Your God is nailed to a cross, my God has a hammer in his hand. You do the math.
Hey Greg: It’s by Edward Current, the greatest living Poe! He has a whole series on YouTube, most as good as or better than this one.
Tom: yeah, I just posted one of his … about how screwy scientist are for believing in science and stuff … on my site.
That’s silly logic. “Because the Bible says so”? I mean, the Bible may be the word of God, but it was written by man. How do we know that the multiple authors of the Bible didn’t make up some pf the stuff that’s in there? I’m not saying I don’t believe in God, because I do, I’m just saying that using the “because the Bible says so” explanation isn’t e very good argument at all.
#6 is right. I don’t believe in God because the Bible said so. I believe he’s real because my mother told me so, and everybody knows that parents don’t tell their children lies about fictional characters.
Uh… That seems like a half-assed answer. What if God remained incognito for the sake of free will? It’d be hard not to believe in God if he had proven himself to exist. Or what if he just didn’t want everyone to become dependant on him? The “testing our faith” bit seems irrational. And that self indulgent “checkmate” at the end of the vid is just goading people into leaving equally stupid comments. Quit spiritually masturbating and try thinking for a change.
Oct: there is far better evidence of evolution than of god, but people still choose not to believe in evolution. He doesn’t have to hide quite this well to let us have free will…
and yes, this is a joke
yeah now he likes to appear on toast or cheetos or on walls under a bridge lol crazy video next he’ll be on youtube or his mom will appear on the side of a building again
Just to reiterate Tom @ #4 and Greg @ #5:
Edward Current is a first-class satirist.
Why I know That There is a God and That He Loves Me
A Personal Testimony.
Years ago doubt was creeping into my head about the Lord and then a miracle happened.
Three years ago 100 members of my church were enroute to a bible camp in the Blueridge Mountains of Virginia. They were traveling in a chartered bus. As they sang hymns, Satan was up to his old tricks. You see, the bus driver was an atheist alcoholic socialist and that day he was filling his coffee mug with vodka. As the bus wound up through the switchbacks, the driver got progressively drunker. Then it happened. It was that day that changed this poor sinner’s life forever. Entering a particularly tight switchback, the besotted driver finally lost control of the bus and it plummeted 1500 feet down into a ravine where it exploded into a fireball incinerating the flock. The only survivor that day was a young boy who was thrown from the bus by his father seconds before it hit the bottom.
This young boy suffered severe brain damage from hitting a rock head first and will have to wear a football helmet and drool cup for the remainder of his life. But his survival proved to me that miracles do happen because God does exist and loves me. The Lord used that accident to bring me back to his flock.
Praise Jesus! Just open your eyes to his miracles and you will see them everywhere.
#11 no really? lol
#12 it must be a miracle you learned such great detail of that fateful bus trip seeing as though the only survivor was a brain damaged young boy
I was scheduled to be on that bus but the Good Lord arranged for me to catch the flu two days earlier. You see, he didn’t want me to die that day because he had other plans for me.
I am now like a modern day Paul traveling the Internets spreading the Good News!
Haha! Very good. Reminds me of my tongue-in-cheek “theological atheism”:
so what plans did God have for the mentally retarted kid? if its a miracle why did god make him suffer?
Because he wasn’t baptized.
