the stooopid it burnz us

Leave God a message at his Dutch answering service

Some dude in Netherlands is assisting believers with their walk in faith by giving them a phone number they can reach to leave a message for god.

Not sure if he's planning on ritually burning the tape so the smoke takes the messages up to the heavens.

Apparently god's message is about as boring as heaven would be. "Hi, you are speaking to God. I'm not in right now so leave a message after the beep."


Service begins March 7th.

The Austin City Lounge Lizards once sang of this sort of thing, "He speaks English real well, considering it's a second language and all."

Many years ago when I was teaching rhetoric and argumentative language I used to tell my students that if they were going to use God in an argument that they had to include a phone number for Him so that I could check their sources.

I didn't follow the link, but a crazy redhead Christian homeschool mom mentioned as an instrument for why people continue to rent vehicles from her father in these troubled times. It sounded like a web version of this answering machine. I understand that desperate people are delusional, but COME ON! How about showing a little interest in your fellow humans and working on them instead of trying to manipulate your imaginary friend?

And if you don't have any real friends, go out and find one!

Atilla- Evidently not. Nice of this chap to help out.

OzAtheist- I found comment #1 to be even more abhorrent than all the Darwin "truths" put together. Throw the baby out with the bath water much?

Pompotous- And if you can't find real friends, come up with a better imaginary friend!
