BullSHIT! MY religion realizes that man is NOT at the center of the
universe, in fact the Earth is quite far out at the fringes, which is
WHY the Elder Gods haven't caught wind of us yet and decided to crush
our puny insignificance into oblivion. NOR does it posit an intelligent
being... JHVH-1 is a bumbling demiurge not so malevolent as
incompetent, and he's racing to trash his failed experiment before
anybody figgers whatsup.
SO that's the absolute LAST word on this from ME, which is the LAST
word there could ever POSSIBLY be, so SHUT UP ALREADY!
Or cut alt.slack from this pointless wanking.
Or send me a dollar, or KILL ME!
