Brian and Norma chatting on an airplane

This is fiction of course, based on a circulating e-mail and my recent experience with an atheist spammer.
An atheist (St. Brian the Godless) was seated next to a little girl (Norma) on an airplane and he turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"OK," she said. "Those could be interesting topics, but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff, grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

To which the little girl replies, "Well then, -- do you really feel qualified to discuss why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death, when you don't know shit?"

And then she went back to reading her book reporting him to his ISP for spamming and stalking her.

I really miss Brian's comments. He had some interesting thoughts and the blog was a lot more interesting!! I suspect the whole 'godless' stance was just to get under your skin. I guess out of it came some new rules by Norma,,, no name calling, thank you for not calling the President a liar again, keep it short, and when you remove posts it is acknowledged. Makes sense.

Dear sent by Brian gym babe. My house, my rules, and calling someone a liar who is a liar is not name calling. You must have missed the last 125 comments he left if you think he's harmless.
