Subject: RE: BS: Fred Phelps & 'God hates fags' organisation
Assuming that what we refer to as "God" actually represents some super-intelligent entity out there in the Cosmos, I tend to think that humankind bears approximately the same relationship to that "God" that bacteria on a Petri dish bear to the lab technician. And vice versa.

"But they say that God marks the fall of every sparrow."

"Yes. But the sparrow still falls."*
