Is God Real?

Normal Bob Smith probes deep into the seedy Christian underworld to reveal the truth about God, Jesus and all that religious stuff.

As usual all of the Christian emails will be in blue and my replies will be in black and white . Enjoy!

CAN IT BE TRUE? Photographic evidence that Jesus really exists!

Despite what I and others say, there is proof that Jesus is the Messiah.

God isn't totally reliant on the Bible as his only source of evidence. He's got other cards up his sleeve. There are many ways that God proves himself to us every day.

These strange sand art sculptures have appeared on several gulf coast beaches in the last three months. They are being compared to crop circles because they appear suddenly, usually at night time.

Some feel the art is a message from aliens, or God, or God-aliens. Either way it's clear that God is a cocky showoff.

These pictures were sent to me by Jenni Cobb who has a friend whose coworker's cousin is friends with this guy who saw one of the sculptures after partying at Mardi Gras last weekend. I get chills up my spine when think about how near I am to this brush with God.

The Shroud of Turin
is another piece of evidence that can't simply be explained away.

I mean, how many people have been buried with a shroud? Ten, maybe twenty? And this guy clearly had a beard... LIKE JESUS!

But to me, there has been no stronger evidence that Jesus is real than this divine bovine.

Talk about incredible! Jesus really got me with this one. I've been told that a quart of milk from this cow is going for a cool $100. It's the closest thing to actually nursing from the virgin Mary herself.

"Why not ask God himself if he is real..."

I came across your site and was so shocked that you have this. I don't think you have any spiritual upbringing in you childhood. But Jesus Christ is not on the cross anymore, He died and rose three days from the tomb and is standing at the right hand of almighty God. And one day very soon He is coming back to judge the world, so you have a choice like you have a freedom of speech in this.

I would like you to examine your heart carefully and see deep down what is true and if you don't believe in an almighty being that created you and this world. Why not ask God himself if he is real and to reveals himself to you. I am not going to bash you over the head and tell turn or burn because you've heard it and that's why your site is making fun of my God. Why don't you make fun of Buddha, or other God's that people worship. This is not to be admire or cherish it's total cute joke with you. Well, just wanted to say that everybody on this earth is going to stand before God and give an account for everything they have done and with his Son Jesus, so in you case it would be creating a funny site that degrades him. I will pray for you that your heart will be touched and you will really know Jesus for who He really is.

Lilly, So far you've had the best suggestion I've yet to hear. Ask God himself if he exists then sit back and watch the fireworks. I'm going to take that advice! I'm a little nervous so I'm going to do a test run with a fake god.
"Ahem.... Buddha? Are you there? Buddha, do you exist?!"
I'm looking around the room.
It's been five minutes and nothing has happened, obviously.

OK, this is easy. Time to ask the real god now. Just to be safe, I've put on a pair of wood shop glasses, a biker's helmet and knee and elbow pads. OK, here I go,
"God?... Hello?... um, do you.... DO YOU EXIST?!"
I am now crouched in the corner with my arms covering my head.
Ten minutes have passed, I've caught my breath and guess what? Nothin! I'm as surprised as you are! So that's it? I can't believe that it was that easy!
"Yo, God, are you in the can?! Show your face... or don't you exist?!... Yeah, thought so!"
Wow Lilly, it's never been so clear to me before. Glad I got that mystery out of the way.

"I have a feeling you are probably feeling empty and unhappy..."


I was saddened to see your site. It is very disrespectful to the Savior. He is your spiritual elder brother who atoned for your sins to make it possible for you to return to live with your Heavenly Father. You may think this is funny, but I was offended and wanted to drop you a note. I wish I could convey to you how thankful I am for the knowledge I have about God and his Son and the Plan of Salvation. If you ever want real peace and happiness in your life, I have the answers and have been blessed with this joy in my life. I have a feeling you are probably feeling empty and unhappy, though you would never admit it. Your life does have a purpose. Well, I'm sure you will disregard this. I am not a religious fanatic. If nothing else I hope you will remember in the lonely moments that you have a Heavenly Father that loves you. Think twice about profaning and mocking Him and HIs son. They have given you your very life and an opportunity to prove yourself here on Earth.

Wow, never feel lonely again! He's the imaginary friend for adults!
Tired of the empty life with no meaning? Need a friend? Not just a friend, but a BEST friend! Invite God to sit on your shoulder! He won't talk back, reject you or complain about your lame personality!
"Hey God, what should we do today? How about a walk to the zoo, a picnic in the park and then a movie?!"

It is no great surprise to me that this works for some people. It does not work for me. There will always be that part of my brain that says "Hey Bob, you're talking to an empty room." Then it asks, "Is it crazy to make friends with an undefined section of space drifting somewhere within earshot?"

As unbelievable as it may sound, I am presently not feeling lonely, unhappy or empty inside. When I am feeling those things the solutions are clear and the quest for those solutions is rewarding and educational. This is something that is not gained when you've got an invisible friend that gives imaginary hugs to make everything all better.

Thank you for your email.
Bob

"I DON'T EXPECT TO SEE THIS STUFF AGAIN ALLRIGHT FOOL..."

 

LISTEN UP FOOL, I DON'T THINK THATS COOL WHAT YOUR DOING YOUR MESSING AROUND WITH SOMETHING THAT IS HOLY.
HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT I'M TELLING YOU THEN FUCK YOU, LEARN HOW TO RESPECT AND YOU WILL BE RESPECTED YOURSELF.... I DON'T EXPECT TO SEE THIS STUFF AGAIN ALLRIGHT FOOL...
NOTHING BETTER TO DO HUH???????????????????
SINCERLY SOMEONE WHO DOSEN'T LIKE YOUR SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KARELLI@aol.com

Your excessive use of exclamation points and question marks left me a bit flustered. That coupled with the locking of your "ALL CAPS" key (Hoping it wasn't a "holding down of the shift bar". That level of anger is inhuman!), it is clear to me that you mean business.
Still I am left to ponder what the next level of anger would hold. If you were to resort to BOLD italics then perhaps your message would get through to me.
So far though it hasn't.

"This world is far too gnarly to just be here out of horseshit luck."

 

Dear Bob,
I realize that most of what is out there in the way of christianity is a lot of Crap. And most of these preachers and chuchgoers are a bunch of assholes but that does not mean that our god is not real. This world is far too gnarly to just be here out of horseshit luck. There will be circumstances in your life where the lord will reveal his grace and power. Anyway, I think your website is pretty damn funny!!! keep up the good work. P.S. be patient and greatful for what you have. It Helps. Take care dude......

Hey dude, Thanks for the props, you wouldn't believe how many assholes I have to put up with... 24/7. I get totally stoked when I hear from someone who isn't so gnarly. I hear your rap and am gonna keep an eye out for the big guy.

Thanks bro,
Bob
