God and the Internet (excerpt from God Explains It All)

How do you come up with this stuff? Do you Google everything I say?

Google? I don’t believe I’m familiar with that term. Is it anything like “ogle”?

You’re kidding, right? Google. The biggest search engine on the internet.

Internet. That’s the thing with computers, isn’t it?

Yes, the World Wide Web. The Information Superhighway. The Digital Revolution. Any of this sound familiar?

I don’t like to follow passing fads. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve got nothing against innovation per se, but I’m not really what you would call an early adopter.

God as a Luddite. Should have seen that coming, I guess, what with the Tower of Babel and all.

Cocky upstarts! You should have seen their faces. It was priceless. Too bad you hadn’t invented your pocket translators yet.
