This is the same god that healed people, walked on water and rose from the dead.

But- he can't nudge a marble.
You know what? I think this can work with ghosts and psychics too. Maybe you could make up a product line.

RE: Deity Tester 1.0-God fails the test
This thread is genius. I think what is most telling is that no one, not even the most ardent of believers, ever expects the marble to move. Says a lot about faith I think. Well done.

Other than that I think you have waaaayyyyy too much time on your hands Big Grin

Btw love the lettering.

Part of my testing procedure is to monitor it with my security cam, I would verify if any earthquakes occurred, but it's unlikely to produce enough force to move the marble.

I have design 2.0 that I have to work out the construction details of, it will virtually eliminate the possibility of earthquakes or wind affecting it. Yes

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C5%ABaumoko

Quote:In Māori mythology, Rūaumoko (also known as Rūamoko) is the god of earthquakes, volcanoes and seasons.[1][2] He is the youngest son of Ranginui (the Sky father) and Papatūānuku (the Earth mother) (commonly called Rangi and Papa).[2]


Give it a shot...what have you got to lose?

Hmmm, I did offer a generic prayer to all deities that should cover Ruamoko, but I think I'll include that one specifically once I construct Deity Tester 2.0.

RE: Deity Tester 1.0-God fails the test
I constructed Deity Tester 2.0, it consists of a simple cardboard disk that sits on a conical plastic tube, all the deity has to do to verify it's existence is turn the cardboard disk per instruction -typically 90, 180 or 270 degrees. This way, there is an intelligent component involved if the deity turns the disc according to instruction. There is almost no chance of earthquakes, wind, or even a pet moving it according to instructions.

I've tested for YHWH, Jesus, and all generic gods with it. The instructions were to rotate the disk 90, 180 or 270 degrees withing a ten second time frame after the prayer invocation, here are the results:

YHWH 10 seconds- no movement
Jesus 10 seconds- no movement
All gods 10 seconds- no movement

Oh, and I have the religious symbology of Jesus on it - two crosses. If that doesn't get Jesus/YHWH to move it, probably nothing will. Big Grin

Laugh out load Inq, you are cracking me up!

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

I suggest an animal sacrifice. No movement means a good day on the grill.

Don't forget Ra and Osiris. When there's a storm, ask Thor. Just not the Marvel one.

Well, clearly your problem is that the label on your test machines didn't use Comic Sans! God loves Comic Sans!

EvolutionKills, if this thing finds a deity, I hope it damns you.

People have already said why these kind of test are stupid for years already: You need faith in God (Luke 17:6, Romans 1:20)
