Quotes: God Is Inept
I still hold firm that the vast majority of humans are idiots, but to know that there's something larger and beyond us, potentially run by even bigger idiots, that's amazing!
Amanda, Wapsi Square, "Bigger Idiots"

Ocean (n.) A body of water occupying 2/3 of a world made for man... who has no gills.
Ambrose Bierce

And don't tell me God works in mysterious ways. There's nothing so mysterious about it. He's not working at all. He's playing. Or else He's forgotten all about us. That's the kind of God you people talk about—a country bumpkin, a clumsy, bungling, brainless, conceited, uncouth hayseed. Good God, how much reverence can you have for a Supreme Being who finds it necessary to include such phenomena as phlegm and tooth decay in His divine system of creation? What in the world was running through that warped, evil, scatological mind of His when He robbed old people of the power to control their bowel movements? Why in the world did He ever create pain?
Yossarian, Catch-22

It is impossible to imagine the universe run by a wise, just and omnipotent God, but it is quite easy to imagine it run by a board of gods. If such a board actually exists it operates precisely like the board of a corporation that is losing money.
H.L. Mencken
