Finally, something comes out of Ayn Rand that makes SENSE! Wood is
created by God, therefore Jesus was a carpenter! If I were a carpenter
I'd smack Ayn Rand with a two-by-four and make her eat her car keys. She
does do a good hootchie dance, and she does know the difference between a
flashlight and a flashing light, but I think you folks are asking a
little much, eh? I mean seriously. Ayn Rand did not create God, God did
not create Ayn Rand. They are both made out of wood. It's that simple.
