Footprints in the Sand...

Here's a Robert Fulghum quote:

"Better than hide-and-seek, I like the game called Sardines. In Sardines the person who is IT goes and hides, and everybody goes looking for him. When you find him, you get in with him and hide there with him. Pretty soon everybody is hiding together, all stacked in a small space like puppies in a pile. And pretty soon somebody giggles and somebody laughs and everybody gets found. Medieval theologians even described God, in hide-and-seek terms, calling him Deus Absconditus. But me, I think old God is a Sardine player. And will be found the same way everybody gets found in Sardines - by the sound of laughter of those heaped together at the end."

This is why religious people are dumb.  Shit like this actually counts as a legitimate argument for God's existence just because it makes their balls tingle.  Ugh...


  1. I think the picture makes my balls tingle...

  2. Gaffi, that is correct. I would've also accepted, "That picture is better proof of God than the quote."
