    This might just be the best thread ever. Nice work.

    Except for that diss on Howard the Duck. Nothing that features Lea Thompson in skimpy outfits can be a bad thing.

    Dear God, what invention or discovery so far have you found the most interesting and why?

    Default If any one of my children are hurt it would kill me inside.

    Why God why do you stay so high above in those clouds and watch some of your children suffer so very much?

    A plan you have they might say,
    To strnghthen you they might say,

    But dear, all mighty, ever loving God, there are limits to which one could go through and when the limit is pushed too hard does it not hurt you that a child of you suffers?

    Does it not occur to you that one can't take it anymore?
    Do you not hear when one screams so hard for help, call your name, that maybe maybe you should stop?

    If any one of my children are hurt it would kill me inside.

    Yeah this makes me doubt God's omnipotence. Which I'm ok with. Would rather have a not all-powerful God than one who CAN do something but instead stands by and watches, for whatever the reason. Maybe it's my puny human brain, but I don't think God can be all-loving AND all-powerful.

    I agree, there are limits to what is "for ones own good." Some things will break a person.

    Dear God, always with the granting me what I ask for, always in the odd ways which I didnt consider and always with the thoughts provoking.

    Love that is given through coercion and intimidation is false love, yet parents, and god both expect it.
    Does this not render the foundations of the religion itself, false?
    Dear nebbykoo,

    I have no interest in false or coerced love, which is why I have imbued each of you with free will. You may love me. Or you may reject me, mock me, and harass my children. Each of these things has happened quite frequently throughout human history, so I find it hard to make a case that I have a gun to anyone's head.

    Besides, bows and arrows are more my style. Have you seen that Daryl in The Walking Dead? He is badass. He would have made a great Jesuit.

    Dear Saturned,

    My beta monkeys kept falling out of trees when they got greedy and grabbed two bananas.

    Dear YWIR,

    Because you are lacking in dedication. You are either lazy or not engaging in studies suited to you. Also, stop watching America's Next Top Model. Srsly.

    Thank you, Jeffster! Much like customer service reps, I usually only hear about it when I screw up. A blessing on you and yours!

    You are right but you are wrong. Ygolo posted everything worthwhile in Howard the Duck in a 30 second YouTube clip. A thirty second clip can't save a terrible movie no matter how many nubile young girls appear in it.
