How to be an Effective God

December 18, 2017

I woke up this morning and realized I no longer want to be a man. I want to be a god. I believe I could be the most effective god ever imagined.

It’s easy. Just give people a big ugly zit on the nose every time they tell a lie. Just that would turn humanity from a race of liars to a race of truth tellers. Not by appealing to moral virtue, which has never worked, but by appealing to vanity, which has never failed.
