From CSI:

When a published study concluded that international prayers caused a 100 percent increase in pregnancy rates among Korean infertility patients, scandals of fraud and lying directly concerning both co-authors’ work on the paper should have been the end of that claim. But when a reputable scientist challenged the disgraced-but-stood-by supernatural explanation, he was unsuccessfully sued for defamation by the fertility doctor named in the study. “Today’s ruling is a victory for science and evidence-based medicine. Scientists must be allowed to question bizarre claims.”

I'm going to pray that the sun rises in the East tomorrow.

If it does, I demand that all of Science apologize to me and bow before the supreme power of my god.
Holy shit! It actually rose in the East this morning! Praise be to Joe Pesci!

We will all now wear little metal baseball bats as a symbol for the suffering and death of our beloved Joe Pesci in the movie Casino.
Seeing as how I failed to write my own gospel, but left it up to other people who've never met me, I suppose I had that bastardization of my great divine powers coming.
You're not the only god. I'm a god too. At least theists keep telling me that.

"You atheists don't believe in God because you worship yourselves!"

D*mn straight, boy! I pray to myself daily. I even answer myself sometimes.
Well that does it. Hugh Kramer and I are now rival gods. Whomever formulates the most MTV-ready commercial birthday party wins.

:-P
No, Jo. You can't compete for superiority at all. That's against deity rules. Your followers have to kill each other and the one whos followers successfully wipe out the followers of the other deity wins, see?

Of course, not all dieties like this rule. Quetzalcoatl has been going very hungry since he hasn't been getting his daily sacrafices. He can't do anything about punishing his followers though because theyre all dead!

That Yaweh bastard is a real attention whore of a god.
No, Jo. You can't compete for superiority at all. That's against deity rules. Your followers have to kill each other and the one whos followers successfully wipe out the followers of the other deity wins, see?

Oh yeah, even better! Then Hugh and I don't have to get our hands dirty. We just sit back and watch the little hu-man ants to see which group of followers can come up with the most horrific atrocities against the others.
Oh man. Imagine the MTV coverage you'd get.

"Pimp My Altar?" or "My Super Sweet Six Sacrifices?"
HAHAHAHA oh wow I've heard some zingers today but answering prayers to yourself takes the cake. 5 stars!
Screw that, the east sun comes in my bedroom window and wakes me too early. I'll pray for the sun to rise in the west. When it does that, maybe I'll reconsider whether there really is a god.
I'd make the sun rise in the west for you, but thou shalt not test the lord thy Jo.

So you'll just have to settle for me creating miracles which coincidentally would have happened in nature anyway, but believe with all your heart that it's a miracle and I'm at the center of it. Not that dodgy Hugh Kramer god.

:-P
