I needed a laugh today. As you know god has put a spell on our World Cup England team.
He seems to create disasters for the fun of it.
I suppose he has got bored with facebook, and needed some fun.....
..
Seriously, what the fuck is it with the praying? If I was trying to run a universe, the last thing I'd need would be some nobody from a rock in the periphery of a utterly insignifigant galaxy pestering me with stupid demands to change my great plan for all of creation.
Yeah, I have trouble buying that. I tend more towards the Lovecraftian view - if there is some divine thing out there, we better hope he/she/it/argllbralgh doesn't notice us.

I just hope the prayers aren't hastening the coming of Cthulhu.
I like what PZ had to say on this:

"Senator Adley! There is no god. Pray all you want, it will avail you nothing. Instead of wasting your effort in making pleas to the nonexistent, go down to the beach with an eyedropper and a thimble, and pluck up a little globule of oil — and you will have accomplished more."
It's completely reasonable to expect that God will stop it. He's stopped all of the other Natural Disasters that he has caused before.
I suppose he will. I mean, the well has to run dry eventually, right?
Well, there you have it then! God will fix this in 50 years! We just have to have patience and faith and trust in his will! LOL!
I actually just got back from a Catholic youth conference in Louisiana. (I didn't have a choice) It really amazed me that they prayed for help with the oil spill. We were seriously about 15 minutes away from the coast and there was 2000 people there. Surely, we could've actually done something to help out.
Catholic youth conference? In the closet and living at home, eh? You have my condolences, lol.

What is that?
That, sir, is a massive facepalm.
