    • John Safran: I admit, there's some people smart enough to understand science and The Big Bang and all that stuff and therefore have enough insight and knowledge to be an Atheist. But let's face it, you're not one of them. Why? Because you're a humanities student with an arts degree. Let's not play any games here. If I came over to your house right now and asked you to exactly explain why The Big Bang theory is more rational than Genesis, you wouldn't be able to stutter out a semblance of an answer. So where do you get off sniggering at Christians like they're stupid and you have some amazing insight. Sure you bought a copy of Stephen Hawking's "Brief History of Time", but I think if you waddle over to your bookshelf, you'll see that the bookmark is exactly where you left it nine years ago... On page three! Face it, you're too stupid to be an Atheist. Until next time, go to hell!

    • John Safran: I can't believe it, I was PINK!!!
