your god cannot fix your computer and you know it

I find it very interesting when christians come to me with a computer problem, and I tell them to try prayer to fix it, that they won't even consider that as a plausible option.

Brilliant.
"Hoist by his own petard" is the age-old expression for this example, because it demonstartes well the uselessness and ineffectiveness of prayer.

I usually don't press the issue, but for the people I start talking to about it, they usually list one of the usual replies on how prayer doesn't work like that or something. They have so many loopholes and escape clauses for everything.

I LOVE this post. Brief. Simple. True.

What is their response?

This is something that continues to utterly BAFFLE me. The very same people who are praying left and right would NEVER believe a car mechanic who tells them he will fix their flat tire by using the power of prayer.

Do they ever tell you why it's not an option?

Whoa! It's all so clear now. God runs the universe by computer. He won't use a mac, 'cuz of that apple thing. Linux is just to hard, even for the omnipotent. Natural disasters = BSOD! He definitely needs to update his anti-virus software. Needs to run a good reg cleaner, too many incompatible programs running at once. This explains that "god opens a window." thing too.

I'm not fixing it for him though; once you do that, you start getting calls at 3 am.

GOD: "Hey, it's God. I was just surfing and my anti-virus started popping up."
ME: "It's 3 am man! What were doing?"
GOD: "Somehow I ended up on some porn site. I didn't give them my credit card number or anything."
ME: ....?
ME: "I didn't ask about your credit card number."
GOD: "Well, I didn't give my number or anything."
ME: "Dude, call your credit card company and tell them to lock your account. What's the anti-virus message say?"
GOD: "Qurantine file: mYgAyTeeNDialer, and Trojan found: ChicksWDicksBackDoor"
ME: "Dude!"

hah! Cancer is one thing but corrupt data? No way, even jeebus can't bring that back.

I lost a TON of artwork (personal projects and stuff I was being payed for) to a bad HD about a year ago. Stupid me didn't have an up to date backup so I was basically fubar.

One of my slightly more cynical 'xian-lite' friends said she would pray for my data. I asked her if jesus could resurrect my dead drive and she said "No, not really. It just seemed like a nice thing to say".

It developed into a long running joke on jesus's struggle to operate a PC. Still gets a chuckle to this day :P
