Godol Hador and the Babelfish

The angst-ridden GH has been trying to find the proof that G-d doesn't exist. I did the dirty work for him:

"Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindboggingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God. "
The argument goes something like this: 'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'
"'But,' says Man, 'The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED.'
"'Oh dear,' says God, 'I hadn't thought of that,' and promptly vanished in a puff of logic.



Actually, the poor guy has taken to capitalize Faith and Reason, and so reading his posts is starting to feel like I'm reading the Romance of the Rose, or the Pilgrim's Progress. Instead of science fiction, maybe his next posts should be in the form of Medieval Allegories. Faith and Reason can battle, while Love and Pride watch on.

I love that book! Pity that the movie was such a travesty...

You left out the end of the passage. "He then proved that black was white and got run over at the crosswalk"

It's hard to figure out where to cut off a good quote. I didn't want to type in the whole chapter :)

Why not it's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Copy the whole 5 book trilogy.
