Now I wish I was serious. :)

However, I got one person ask me - "Didn't a person actually create the glass though?" - and found myself wondering the same thing you wondered ... "are you serious?"

I have also heard that about everything we take for granted has been reverse engineered from alien technology.......Laugh track where are you?

Clearly a satire!  (No Xian would prostrate like that.) 

But it puts me in mind of Douglas Adams' puddle, which thought that the ground was ideally designed to hold it because the shape fit was perfect.

** Why "God" had to retreat into the world of "feelings"

After tremendous resistance, god-proxies had to give up on the physical world and events within nature as being evidence for the existence of metaphysical entities, forces, being, ground of being. It might be a useful exercise to inquire of a true believer who is a biblical lieteralist whether his ideology demands that somehow -- the Sun must circle the Earth. We're coming up on the 500th anniversary of the birth of protestantism via Martin Luther in 1517. Luther had no problem beating Conpernicus over the old man's head with his biblical defense of an Earth centered universe:

“People give ear to an upstart astrologer [Copernicus] who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon. Whoever wishes to appear clever must devise some new system, which of all systems is of course the very best. This fool wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy.” [Martin Luther, Works, Volume 22, c. 1543]

That's a difficult view to sustain today -- it is in the present state of knowledge irrational. The same verdict is true about so-called intelligent design and all forms of lies about modern evolutionary theory. Resistance goes on; but resistance is futile -- unless science can be undermined by ideological action.

By 1800 the cult of "feeling" -- what gets called romanticism -- undercut ideas of rationality in the arts. Waves of religious enthusiasm -- the sort of hysterical outpourings common to today's xian rallies -- brought about the "great awakening". It's a disease from which xians still suffer. Science displaced "God" from the universe -- "God" leaves no detectable footprints in the cosmos; no fingerprints on his creation.

"God" went inward to hide in the "feelings" of the believer -- psychology, sociology, anthropology, comparative study of religion haven't yet finished with driving "God" out of the "human heart" or the "soul".

Defending "God" in nature remains only an irrational rearguard action. Try addressing the idea of "subjective certainty" of "God's" existence -- it's the last place for him to hide.

Is there a Christian denomination that prostrates?  That is what led me to my conclusion it was fake; I've never seen Xians do that--though they certainly have the attitude it illustrates

Wow, the first was very relaxing, in a numbing way, I did not pursue the second. 

It did partly remind me of my catholic school days. Sadly there is no scratch and snife for the sandle wood incense.

Does it help if I 'prostrate' myself a few times a day before my computer, seeking guidence and forgiveness from that great icon of the 21st century? I expect, trying to understand soil CO2 emissions, might atleast get me part way to wisdom....

So, since I did not see the emotacons, in a proper or existent syntax, I missed the direction of a 'must see'? OK, if I have to....lo)

We need a plam slap emotacon!

Ok, I watched the second, not as numbing as the first, I might add.

If I were a member of that fellowship, I think I would build a spring loaded 'slaining' pad/board, that would catch the more, 'full of the spirit', victims/believers just as they are slain. Sadly, on a good day, a few dozen back boards might be needed. I am sorry for the young kids that held the woman as she collapsed/slain, they could pull a muscle, or get a hernia....
