Ten Plagues and Moses

“And if anyone can show me one example in the history of the world of a single spiritual person who has been able to show either empirically or logically the existence of a higher power with any consciousness or interest in the human race or ability to punish or reward humans for their moral choices or that there is any reason other than fear to believe in any version of an afterlife, I will give you my piano, one of my legs, and my wife.”  Tim Minchin

God: Moses…
Moses: ……
God: Moses…
Moses: Eh, what?
God: Moses I have been thinking about the plight of the Jews in Egypt.
Moses: Really…You have…after only 400 years, you’re thinking of us?
God: [pause]  has it been that long?
Moses: Yes, but it’s alright Boss…good…thank you.
God: I will take your people out of bondage after 10 very terrible and nasty plagues.
Moses: [pause] ten…plagues?
God: Is that a problem?
Moses: Well, it’s just that 10 is a lot of plagues.  Couldn’t you do it in maybe one or two?
God: I don’t think so; for you see, I will harden Pharaoh’s heart against me.
Moses: Wait a minute…you are going to stop Pharaoh from setting us free from slavery?
God: Yes.
Moses: So…so you can bring more terrifying plagues upon the people?
God: Yes…Hmm, I’m thinking maybe something with first-born also.
Moses: Do you see nothing wrong with this plan God?
God: [pause] No…why?
Moses: Is there like maybe a supervisor up there I could talk too?

About the word of me
Interested in family and friends,grandchildren, photography, darkrooms, history, archaeology, scuba diving, computers, software, fast cars, journalism, writing, travel, ecology, news, science, and probably most other subjects you could think of. Did I mention family and friends?? I require iced tea or cold brewed coffee and a internet connection to be fully functional. Sometimes there are just so many words in my head they spill out.

    Hey Tim…
    If what you say that you would do were true that is one thing., But sir, the comment about your piano, leg and wife indicates that you really don’t want to know the truth. Well, all I can say sir is this. “You sure better hope I am wrong”… If not, you have missed out on a whole lot in this life, right here and now. I don’t even need to speak of your eternal state and destiny. Christ is good enough to be loved, honored, served and revered here and now. Man, its for people like you that I NEVER pray for Christ to hurry up and return for His Church. Too many like you would be left. As for me— you don’t know what my life was like before meeting Him or how it has changed. My life transformed is proof enough (for me) sir. With all do respect. If ever you want real answers. Honest dialouge and follow up, I am your guy. No problem. Respectfully, -PT

    For me to try to show it to you would be tough. The reason I am writing to you is my wife had carpal tunnel years back. When we gathered to pray for her I said if you have faith God will heal you. Well we prayed and the Lord heal my wife and the doctor exrayed found no cartilage in her wrist. How does someone like you convince someone like me that there is no God.

  3. the word of me says:

    Hello Victor Loera, thanks for writing.

    First, I’m certainly glad your wife is O.K.

    I will not convince you at all.

    The only thing I can say is that prayer has been studied scientifically a number of times and it has always shown to be ineffective…never works in situation that cannot possibly be be a result of the placebo effect.

    Prayer has never ever healed a amputee or a child born with mongolism and a number of other medical problems that are known to be “unfixable” by medicine.

    God does not seem to be able to help or cure medical problems (among others) but science sure can. Think of the Million (billions ??) of humans who have ever lived on this earth and died of horrible diseases while “God” stood by and never helped. It took humans to finally start to conquer the many, many diseases that run rampant on earth.
