Prophet or crazy
Today I was thinking about how God doesn't talk to people like he used to.
If you talked to god earlier than, say, the Renaissance, you were a
prophet. Now, if you talk to god, you're just bat-shit crazy.
This may lead many of you to think, "Well, what about
Reggie White? Does he really talk to God, or is he crazy too?"
However, this led me
to think, "How could someone who is so
clearly crazy play professional football for so long?"
See the difference? He's fucking insane. I can't even comprehend the
size of the ego a person would have to have to think that God would
talk to them, let alone about issues such as which teams contract
offer looks the best. God's all, "Reginald, I think you should sign
with the Packers. The other offer is worth more overall, but its all
backend money. With the Packers' bonus offer, and assumed annual
interest rate of blah percent, it ends up being worth more in
the long run." Congratulations, Reggie White, for trivializing your
deity more than any non-believer could. If your wife isn't around,
do you ask God which belt matches your slacks better?
Does God tell you which lane is moving faster on the freeway? If your
god really gives a shit about the things you think he does, then
you've probably picked the wrong god. You might want to try
Shinto or Huyijih (okay I made that one up).
