Killing God is easy.

If everyone simply stops talking about Him, He will cease to exist like countless other supernatural deities that humans have invented.

God is an American, and American's are not subject to international law.

There is only one problem: there is no such thing as god.

I know that is kinda the point, but I just had to say it...

OMG(literally?). ROFL.

Let the death-bringer hang. There is no statute of limitations on murder, so I think we can judge him for all the horrible natural acts ever to occur on this planet. He will surely get the death penalty, unless you have the trial in Europe with those socialist commies who dont believe in the death penalty.

Well if OJ can get off, just imagine the defense team GOD would bring to the court. a two headed, levitating, fire breathing Johnny Cochran, at least. Of course, any jury that convicted Him would be thrown into a lake of fire. I don't think taking God to court is going to be enough. Clearly He needs to be assisinated.

Nietzsche tried it already. Apparently, God can't be killed. He must be a zombie.

Hey no one has the right to kill God(GET OUT OF ME aaaaghh spit hisssssss)) except me. Dominus ad versum Christum corruption of the catholic mass

'The Black Mass'
Sanguis bibimus"-- "We have drunk the blood"

"Corpus edimus" -- "We have eaten the body"

"Tolle corpus" -- "Raise the body"

"Satani" -- figure it out

"Ave" -- "hail

What is your pleasure?
The box.

Your daddy already tried that, Damien, and got his ass kicked.

Posted by keshmeshi | December 28, 2006 12:50 PM

Oh yeah. He'll show you. He'll be back in a sequel, just you guys wait. 'Ave Satani' Dominus! Sanguis Bibimus'!

Original Andrew, right on.

Dan, this idea is so late 17th century. It didn't work then (or the endless times it's been tried after), and it won't work now. When will you give up your jihad against God? He's God, He's Here, deal with it.

Posted by Xui-tech | December 28, 2006 1:18 PM

Dan, I seem to recall a story of two Rabbis in a German death camp in WWII who actually convened a Jewish religious tribunal and put God on trial for abandoning his people. They found him guilty, of course. Can we maybe put the American Taliban on trial for abandoning common decency?

People, read "The Demon-Haunted World" by Carl Sagan. It's a beautiful piece.

There is an exciting kid's(!) series of books about killing god- Phillip Pullman's "His Dark Materials". Armoured polar bears AND gay angels!

Gawdie, you're doing a heckuva job!

Posted by Slip Mahoney | December 28, 2006 2:28 PM

James Morrow's novel "Blameless in Abaddon" is about a judge who organizes a "Job Society" and puts God on trial at the Hague for crimes against humanity. It's possibly my favorite book.

I can already envision the Left Behind movie based on this entry.

Dan would make a good evil overlord, as long as he brushes up his Rumanian accent.

@16: "Slip Mahoney" has to be one of the best pornstar names I've ever heard... yes, I realise you're probably not one, but you should be, dammit.

Oh yeah, and kill god too.

Posted by Tahn | December 28, 2006 4:37 PM

Best entry that I've read in a long time. (Don't tell Mudede.) Anyone that thinks that their god would kill to make a moral point should be locked away.

Posted by bma | December 28, 2006 5:27 PM

You DO sound like Tony Kushner! I just got that reference...

Posted by Linh | December 28, 2006 6:43 PM

maybe god has really bad aim?

Posted by back east | December 28, 2006 7:49 PM

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

Posted by Gitai | December 28, 2006 9:35 PM

The religion I grew up in claimed that disasters--from small (diseases) to large (hurricanes)--are God's way of testing us. I have no idea how killing innocent people is a test for them, but hey.

"God is dead."

"Nietzsche is dead."
