God, oh god where art thou?

I've heard the whole line about god and heaven and hell and Jesus, what I have yet to hear is someone who had come up with PROOF of a god. That's what I am waiting on. See, I look at this god character much the way I look at Santa Clause. We have tons of literature, "bibles" that talk about Santa. We have a place where he lives, his "heaven" if you will, and we have literally millions of followers, children, who claim that he is real.

For someone like me, god is no more real than Santa, at least once I debunked the whole idea of each. Now when I was five, I thought god and Santa were both quite real, then my parents admitted that Santa was the culmination of hundreds of stories and myths that have been spun into the present day vision that we see as Santa. Doesn't that sound remarkable familiar? God as a combination of tens of thousands of years of worshiping anything and everything, to finally bring them all together into today's vision of a "god."

Santa has reindeer who fly, god has angels. Santa gives to the good little boys and girls, and god promises if we all are good little boys and girls we will all be rewarded in heaven. Each has a "naughty" list that they somehow just LOVE to check.

To listen to many, god and Santa both have long white flowing beards and they simply LOVE being adored by everyone. Now, to many, "all things are possible with god," but then again so are they with Santa.

Well, I think I prefer Santa over god, at least Santa answers his letters by bringing the good little kids a gift and all the bad kids get is a lump of coal, not eternal damnation.


  1. Yup, god and santa and the tooth fairy and the boogy man.

    Nice work Martin.

  2. Hi Martin! Long time no see, but glad to see you again! It's funny, this issue about God. It brings up such turmoil. Proof?? There will never be any. People just need to get over that question. You either believe or don't believe or just continually wonder. That's what is so fascinating about him/her/it etc.

  3. Whats up martinT? You have been missing in action. You did too many good things on ireports to disappear. Glad to see you still around. You are always welcome on my blog.
