Oops, sorry.  Just regular Dead, not DEad!

They're working on it.  Ever hear about their "Baptism of the DEad" program?  

No shirt babe, that's how they got into the whole geneology thing in the first place.  Members have long-dead relatives baptized Moronic for some ridiculous reason.

I guess they haven't gotten 6000 years back yet.

Comment by Lemual Poot on April 18, 2015 at 10:03pm

The Morons are so big on geneology, I was sure they'd know. But Noooo!

Does anyone know who god's parents were?  If he had poor upbringing it could explain the antisocial behavior and the many atrocities.  Including the rape and pursuant Filicide of his only son.

Also might explain his reclusiveness over the last few millennium.  I’ve asked, but they only turn, and walk away.  Theists are so weird!

There must be plenty of great information to keep them occupied for a long time, & so very interesting.

Thanks for posting Spud! I wonder what else they find.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 17, 2015 at 10:36am

The spacecraft studying mercury will crash into it at the end of this month, but scientists are very happy with what it's found.

For one thing, huge amounts of water on that hot planet, in the polar craters.

GOOD letter!  I hope it does get published. 

The only thing I might add would be the question, "How would an omniscient being NOT know how his handiwork would turn out before she-he-it began it?"

I get so tired of hearing or reading victims of crimes and catastrophes say "De lard is testing my faith."  The buybullgod doesn't need to "test" anything. She-he-it is supposed to already know.

I just sent this to the Editor of the local newspaper for entry into :Letters to the Editor".  I doubt if he will publish it.

"After watching the news of the Middle East for the past 15 years, I can’t understand why more people aren’t Atheists.

Here we have Jews, Muslims, and Christians who are truly good people, and devoutly religious, each in their own way.  All  of them sincerely believe that the religion they are following is the proper way to adore God, and yet God is letting them down.  Millions of people are dying for no other reason than that they believe in God, and are following Him in the way they think He wants.

If there is a God, why doesn’t He light the burning bush again, and explain to the people what it is that He wants from them?  Why is He letting all of this carnage happen in His name, to the very people who adore Him the most?  An omnipotent God that  could stop it all with the snap of His fingers.  It just doesn’t make any sense for a “loving and caring God” to allow this death and destruction to continue.".
