Another Sign From Above?

That's part of a photo that appeared in my newspaper on Oct 16 with the caption "Fixing an 'act of God'"....

I'm not sure when the damage may have occurred, but the short accompanying story made clear that lightning did it.

Too bad whoever wrote that story didn't clarify exactly which gOd he or she may have had in mind. Since it was a Christian church, one might perhaps be forgiven for jumping to the conclusion that Zeus is still pissed off at all those who have turned their back on him and embraced a false religion, but you never know - maybe Jesus and/or his daddy are just sadistically toying with their devout followers yet again.

Given that people have worshiped thousands of named gOds over the centuries, how might we discover which deity or deities are responsible for this, that, or the other thing at any given time?

What's that, you say? It's best to reject them ALL as the vain imaginings of various folks unless and until someone gives us a non-absurd definition of gOd and can then go on to provide us with some good evidence that one actually exists?

Come here, Oh Wise One. If you've got the time, I think I want to marry you!
