I am forever astonished by how many mistakes could be avoided if people would just think about what they are saying. This is especially the case in religion. An example of this is the assumption that God is male. Obviously God is a woman, because God doesn't have a penis. The proof of this is by omission: nowhere in the Bible is there a reference to the "Divine Penis," and I am sure that if God were a man He would talk about it somewhere. No real man could go on for hundreds of pages about himself without mentioning that thing once or twice. Upon remarking on the above observation, I was notified by someone that he heard the oath "by the infinite dick of God" around Caltech, though "semi-infinite" would be more precise. Unfortunately, this further muddles the issue. I am thankful that the ancient theologians did not realize this point, otherwise they would have wasted much time in debating this actually nonexistent part of God. I can see it all now... During the fall of Rome, St.Augustine referred to "God's mighty male member, wider than the Coliseum, more powerful than Zeus's tool, able to take Athena in a single bound." Then in the middle ages, Thomas Aquinas, in an attempt to reconcile St.Augustine's remark with the rediscovered writings of Zeno, declared that the length of God's immense organ must be semi-infinite. But then Rene Descartes, after spending a lifetime in philosophical thought, stated that since God is greater than that which can be conceived, God's measureless masculinity must be truly infinite, because an infinite length is much longer (in fact, infinitely longer) than a semi-infinite length. However, the followers of Aquinas immediatedly countered with a simple argument: "If God's tree is infinite, then what holds it up? Certainly one end of God's tremendous tree must be firmly rooted in his loins." Also, a minor philosopher (whose name I forget, but who liked perfect islands) argued "If God's monument to life were infinite then there must be a fig leaf whose extent is also infinite. But then there is something infinite that is not part of God, which contradicts the assumption that God is the greatest. The only solution is that God's rod must be semi-infinite, so that He can hide it by turning His back to the world and looking over His shoulder." Since both sides had such valid points, for a while the discussion reached a stalemate. Then the great German philosopher Hegel attempted to reconcile the issue with his sword-plowshare theory, where he proposed that the infinite and semi-infinite are actually two manifestations of the same thing. Though it seemed impossible, Hegel claimed that God does occasionally beat His infinite sword into a semi-infinite plowshare. This theory gained great popularity, but it didn't really solve anything primarily because no one could understand it. Some time afterwards, the rise of non-Euclidian geometry seemed to favor the Cartesians when it showed that God's wondrous worm could be infinite in this dimension, yet be attached to Him in a higher dimension. However this solution was not totally satisfactory either, because then there isn't a preferred direction to God's protrusion in this dimension. The answer to the debate had to wait till the beginning of the 20th century, when Georg Cantor, attempting to cope with his strict religious upbringing, proved that a semi-infinite member is just as long as an infinite member; therefore God's member may be semi-infinite and yet be no shorter than an infinite member. Cantor's colleagues ridiculed him by showing that his theorems also proved that a finite real dimension is commensurable with an infinite one, suggesting that anyone's piddling plow is just as long as God's prodigious pecker. This paradox was solved only with the advent of quantum theory, which demonstrated that the real world corresponds to the set of integers rather than the set of reals. In that case Cantor's theory showed that the finite phallus was infact infinitely shorter than the infinite one, though the theory still retained the property of the commensurability between the infinite and the semi-infinite. So today mathematicians agree that Cantor was correct, finally and conclusively demolishing the central argument of the Cartesian theory. Thus we see that if St.Augustine had thought about the nature of God's member, only after several centuries of the application of logic and mathematics and physics would a definite answer be reached. And even then the answer would be wrong, because the very basis of the argument is nonexistent. For the reason described at the beginning of this treatise, we the faithful know that by simply examining the Word of God it is obvious that any discussion in this area is meaningless, since God hath no member.
