In this post, no one ever said that god did not exist. And your little anecdote, What college students in their right mind would think the prof did not have a brain?
And further more...

and y do u say that???


Is it so hard to type out the letters wh, and yo?

I am so glad that you wish to prove the existence of God. That would be a great feat indeed, as so many before you have tried. Some things just have to be based on faith.

Again, this post was not about God, nor do I wish to debate it with you.

Two of my all-time favorite Dilbert strips I saved from my Dilbert desk-top calendar and posted in my cubicle at work:

Dogbert and the Skeptic
(This is from a series of strips where the Skeptic has been hired by someone to prove Dogbert is wrong to claim to have psychic powers. The Skeptic’s methods are to use some form of physical test and then claim that, because he didn’t find any evidence for psychic power, such powers don’t exist.)
Frame 1: Dogbert: “If your controlled tests have never found psychic powers, how do you know the tests work for that sort of thing?”
Frame 2: Dogbert continues, “Isn’t that like using a metal detector to find out if there are unicorns in your sock drawer?” To which the Skeptic scoffs, “NO!”
Frame 3: Later that night, showing the Skeptic holding a metal detector in front of his dresser, thinking to himself, “A Skeptic checks all the drawers.”

And pinned just below the other strip is the following:

Frame 1: Pointy-haired Boss says, “Before I eat a sandwich, I always remove the useless edges of the bread.”
Frame 2: Pointy-haired Boss continues, “That tells you what kind of manager I am.”
Frame 3: Asok-the-perpetually-wide-eyed-intern says incredulously, “You’re the anti-crust?”

(Just for the record, by choice I am not a theist, but I am sympathetic to both sides of the argument, neither side of which convinces me unequivocally.)
