So they tell me you’re the all knowing all powerful deity. Tell me how does that make you feel?
I suppose omnipotent would be a good word to describe myself.
But isn’t that a bit egomaniacal?
Well after thousands of years of you people telling me that I do start to believe the hype.
So why do you go and kill all these people that adore you?
Well you know I wouldn’t give people more than they could handle.
Excuse me, but that sounds like bullshit.
Maybe it is. What are you going to do about it?
You’re a snotty little god aren’t you?
Maybe I am.
So tell me how do you get along with the other gods?
Other gods? Like who?
Zeus, Allah, Shiva.
Oh, them. They really don’t have much to say.
Why do you think that is?
Well the people that worship me fight the people that worship them. It’s a great form of population control when you really break it down.
Are you always this smug?
When I have to be, yes.
So tell me about your ‘son’. You sent him to earth to be murdered. Not exactly a nice thing is it?
Well he died for you.
Me? What did I do?
You were born. A most original sin.
I didn’t have any say in the matter.
Doesn’t matter. You’re born, you’re cursed.
Is this related to Adam and Eve?
In a way it is. You have to pay for their mistake.
The mistake of thirsting for knowledge?
Yes, I wanted them to remain ignorant. It really is blissful you know.
I’m surprised this world isn’t in a state of permanent bliss if that’s the case.
Are you so sure it isn’t?
So you kill a lot of innocent people. Does that do anything?
No, but it gives people a chance to wonder what is going on. I just let them think it’s no more than they can handle.
Yes, babies. I really like ‘em. You know they’re not just for breakfast anymore. Lol.
You eat babies?
No, well not anymore. You know they used to sacrifice babies in my name. All types. That was fun but oh man, what a stink.
So, of all the groups that worship you, do you have any favorites?
Well they’re all my children. I loved the Jews, but man, they were so serious. Catholics really put on a good show, but oh the bureaucracy. Then with the reformation, man that was like splitting up the phone company.
Well from one company controlling everything, all of a sudden, you had many different variations on a theme. The Catholics had priests as operator assistance. Then Martin Luther introduced direct dialing.
What about the Jews?
The Jews have their own method of communicating. I don’t know where they got the idea if traveling to Jerusalem and wailing at a wall. But it’s all about me isn’t it?
And the Moslems?
Well they do like that big rock. And they throw rocks. They’re funny. But really don’t have much in the sense of humor department. Anyway, that’s all Allah’s thing, not mine.
When did you get into fashion?
Well it all started as a dare. I wanted to see if anyone would actually wear the things I suggested, and to my eternal chagrin, they did.
So the yarmulkes? The Burkahs?
All mine. Look out 7th avenue! Lol.
You’re a great big jerk you know that?
I know you are, but what am I?
Is that all you have to say?
Buddha has the right idea. But by endorsing that I diminish myself. So forget I said that.
One last question. If someone leads a good life, doesn’t hurt anyone, and doesn’t believe in you, is that a problem?
No, not for me. My followers, for sure though. I don’t exist. You’re writing this all by yourself.
