Did you really type it to me? I mean, I'd guess you probably did, but my point is, your message and my response could all just be a part of your imagination. Or my imagination. And even if we met in person and watched each other type, that might still be a hallucination.

Imaginations and hallucinations are something.

Well, just because there is something doesn't mean there's a God, and just because there may be a God doesn't mean there's significance to our existence. If I were to envision a God at all it would be a God who is completely indifferent to the fate of his "creations". It would be a God who has many "projects" around the Universe with life (because we've actually calculated how many planets can support life in the Universe).

That is the only God that could possibly exist. If a caring God did exist, he would not allow his creations to die without purpose. He would not send us on an inevitable journey of heat death. He would not threaten the lives of children for no reason. I just don't see it being possible.

In fact, the entire idea of God seems a bit far-fetched to me, but if I did believe in God, I would still believe we are insignificant. I'm not exactly sure what our purpose could ever be in this universe. If you look at us compared to the rest of the Universe it's like looking at an atom in comparison to the entire Earth.

No Lexus? I'd settle for a Kia! One of those like the hamsters on the commercial
drive. That would get me to and from work in downtown Nashville. I can see me
now, weaving in and out of those crazy commuters. Get out of my way, I've got
places to go and people to see in my new Snare Science Kia!

Thanks Ryan.

Dennis

This one comment just brightened up my entire week... I'm dying on the floor right now out of laughter.
