I was kind of busy so I felt like leaving it at that article =p it was quite funny. And anyway if the christians themselves admit to their likelihood of being struck by lightning that's good evidence to me =p

I did read it and realize there was no source prior to posting it was just really funny.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

Indeed. The kind of god that would be objective does not exist and anything else is not a god.

Oh, no Hallucinations 4:11 says the 'gilded sheep should be stewed in rat blood' but Morons 5:16 contradicts it. (Chas)

I would never shake a baby unless the recipe requires it.

Spoken like a true nihilist. Wink

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

To me, then, the chocolate wrapper is a god. No? It doesn't actually have to regrow chocolate to be god, other gods don't react in any way to prayers either.

Note to self: I have got to get off this chocolate thing!

From your subjective point of view the wrapper can be a god, but it's not objectively a god. It's not worthy of worship. Objectively, from the man who made the design to the minimal wage worker who carries the boxes of chocolate and even the machine that printed the logo are relatively more worthy of worship.

Big Grin I worship at the altar of the chocolate god nearly every day...I think it's worthy.

Ahh, a woman after my own heart!

The closest I could find to the original online (doing a quick search... it might actually be the original.. I'm unsure) was:
