Is Dune really an example? What he's saying is there have never been wormsigns this big before, hence why even God hasn't seen one this big before now.

Was there some reason the Titanic thing ("God Himself could not sink this ship") got removed? It's a real life Blasphemous Boast. Sure, it didn't end well for the Titanic, but that shouldn't disqualify it.

This is partly why I didn't want it renamed to this. It's not actually stating anything that God would find blasphemous, but having something greater than god, like having more money than god. The name now just creates confusion.

Technically, it is a blasphemous boast. The idea that men could build something beyond the capabilities of the Almighty is a blasphemous idea...same as the myth of the Tower of Babel. Of course, it's not an idea without biblical support; God apparently had some trouble routing armies with chariots of iron.

You're getting this wrong. The point isn't whether or not this would count as that. The point is that this doesn't include any form of such boasting.
