God is very busy. What if he's been tied up with something else and is late getting to ending the world?

It's going to be a terribly disappointing to wake up to a brand new day we thought we'd never see, only to watch the dark clouds gathering...

But god is all knowing and all powerful. If he had a scheduling conflict, he'd have seen it coming, and been able to do plenty to fix it.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

Worst cult leader ever. Everybody knows that the 'out' for this stuff is the kool-aid. That way, everyone who bought your message the first time won't be around to find out that you're a complete re-nob.

Don't be too upset that your prediction missed, Harold. It's not the end of the world.

We all woke up Saturday at the Magic and Meaning Conference in Las Vegas only to find the hallways of the hotel littered with Bibles. For a moment we thought the Rapture had occured. Then it was pointed out that the stacks of scripture were left there so that the maid service could put the new Guideon Bibles into the rooms.

You know, I've been in a couple of hotels (here in the USA) that had not only a Bible, but a Koran, as well.

If hotel Bibles are called "Gideon Bibles", I wonder what the Korans might be called? "__________ Korans".

I've never seen a Koran in a hotel, but I did see a Book of Mormon once. Wonder if I could get a bulk deal on some D.T. Suzuki Smile

I thought you were leading up to it being a bunch of ****ed off followers throwing the bibles out of their rooms after not being taken away.

Sounds a little like the followers of the 2nd coming of the great prophet Zarquod. (Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy). We find the followers having dinner at the Restaurant At The End of the Universe where they're still waiting. The Great Prophet Zarquod actually shows up seconds before the galaxy actually ends.

The Gideons were a group of followers who thought if Bibles were found in hotel rooms, people would be inspired to read them instead of "questionable" stuff. I don't know who's distributing the Korans.

Sorry. I try not to do that, but sometimes I forget I already posted.

Yeah, but we're not supposed to and I got called on the green carpet once already for that.

I don't get it, Ed. What did you post twice? Post twice in two different topics?

Mind you, I've just had a glass of Port, so my faculties might not be at their best! Smile

Yes, I posted twice on two different topics on the same thread. What I've been told is that I'm supposed to edit my original post with whatever new information I want to add, not make another post.

I have too, but sometimes it seems necessary for the rythm of the conversation. I don't know. Kids these days with their floopy disks and Goggle Plus...
