God in no hurry to call His faithful servant home. He's probably got Jesus and the Saint's vaccuming Heaven and making sure that the dope plants are well hidden before He risks letting the Pope in. He still remembers what happened when Mary Whitehouse died during Heaven's 'gay rollerboot disco' party. There are many passages in the Bible that lend themselves to being reinterpreted as a BBC comedy-of-manners or farce. Saul walking the road to Damascas, he's grumpy, he's a tax collector, God blinds him, then his trousers fall down. Or Some Mothers Do Have Them with Samson? He leave Betty for that naughty Delilah, she cuts off his hair, source of his balance and he accidentally causes the temple to fall down at the end of each episode?

Meanwhile, for those who believe 'Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent and my kind of fella!' this article shows what a lack in their education forty years ago is doing to damage the educational standards in US schools today.

But the largest applause of the evening was reserved for a silver-haired gentleman in a navy blue blazer. "I have a question: if man comes from monkeys, why are there still monkeys? Why do you waste time teaching something in science class that is not scientific?" he thundered.

Were there no science teachers at this meeting who could have perhaps explained to him that evolution does not say that humans evolved from monkeys? And then perhaps thrown a board rubber at him and given him detention for talking out of turn?
