God The Computer Programmer

You know, many important theological questions are answered,
if we think of God as a Computer Programmer:
Q: Does God control everything that happens in my life?
A: He could, if he used the debugger, but it's tedious 
   to step through all those variables.
Q: Why does God allow evil to happen?
A: God thought he eliminated evil in one of the earlier versions.
Q: What causes God to intervene in earthly affairs?
A: If a critical error occurs, the system pages him automatically 
   and he logs on from home to try to bring it up. Otherwise things 
   can wait until tomorrow.
Q: Did God really create the world in seven days?
A: He did it in six days and nights while living on cola and candy 
   bars. On the seventh day he went home and found out his girlfriend 
   had left him.
Q: How come the Age of Miracles Ended?
A: That was the development phase of the project, now we are in the 
   maintenance phase.
Q: Who is Satan?
A: Satan is a MIS director who takes credit for more powers than he 
   actually possesses, so people who aren't programmers are scared of 
   him. God thinks of him as irritating but irrelevant. 
Q: What is the role of sinners?
A: Sinners are the people who find new an imaginative ways to mess up 
   the system when God has made it idiot-proof.
Q: Where will I go after I die?
A: Onto a DAT tape.
Q: Will I be reincarnated?
A: Not unless there is a special need to recreate you. And searching 
   those tar files is a major hassle, so if there is a request for you, 
   God will just say that the tape has been lost.
Q: Am I unique and special in the universe?
A: There are over 10,000 major university and corporate sites running 
   exact duplicates of you in the present release version.
Q: What is the purpose of the universe?
A: God created it because he values elegance and simplicity, but then 
   the users and managers demanded he tack all this senseless stuff onto 
   it and now everything is more complicated and expensive than ever.
Q: If I pray to God, will he listen?
A: You can waste his time telling him what to do, or you can just get off 
   his back and let him program.
Q: What is the one true religion?
A: All systems have their advantages and disadvantages, so just pick the 
   one that best suits your needs and don't let anyone put you down.
Q: How can I protect myself from evil?
A: Change your password every month and don't make it a name, a common 
   word, or a date like your birthday.
Q: Some people claim they hear the voice of God. Is this true?
A: They are much more likely to receive email.
I've found Jesus.  He was behind the sofa the whole time.
