    Not being a Christian I don’t know all the stories, but I don’t recall hearing anything about anyone drowning in the bible. So who did god drown?

    Mr. Russell: Concise and devastating. Brilliant!

    Bonus jibes –
    A “god” that tells you to murder your child via stoning if they are unruly is not worth your belief.
    A “god” that threatens you with hell for eating shrimp is just silly.
    A “god” that denies you the utility of the cotton/poly blend is impractical.
    A god that says you must eat the flesh and drink the blood of his child is, let’s face it, creepy.
