“God” is what Bill O’Reilly says when he doesn’t understand where something came from.

Proving the existence of God: “As long as nobody knows, the answer has got to be God.”

Stephen Colbert with a funny/true bit (especially love the bit about the faucets), so funny/true he loses it himself at one point:

    # And, the holy, the reverent, the devoted, the peaceful. God ain't the problem, it's our conception of Him/Her as so limited He/She sides with one nation or religion or football team over another. ~ Waylon

    Observing the new kinder and gentler Elephant regulations I did not watch the video in order to restrain myself from making negative, upsetting, and unkind comments. In place of my comments I suggest everyone who visits this article an extra hour on the cushion.

    OMG that last line was worth the whole thing..
    I'd prefer if bill didn't help us explain god — he's just making us look bad. :)

  6. It should be noted that Stephen Colbert (the real Stephen Colbert, not the character he plays) is a practicing Catholic, who even teaches Sunday school

    Oi…for me Life's too short to be taken seriously…I like my messages with humor…you see ridicule I see the ability to laugh at human folly…
    You also seem to think you can comment without watching…I find that more disturbing :) that's my opinion. The greatest truths are doled out in humor and that's how I prefer to recieve them rather than with vitriol or disdain…
    I sit on the cushion to hear the voice of god and when he speaks to me its with a smile…and he tells me to get off the cushion and go out and enjoy the gift of life we were given.
