Antique telephoneAn art exhibition in the Netherlands allows you to call God on the phone. When you dial, you get a message that says, “This is the voice of God, I am not able to speak to you at the moment, but please leave a message.”

When I read this I laughed–It’s about as effective as real prayer.

    Prayer is effective because of the placebo response. Unfortunately once you realize this your placebo response is diminished.

    Damn right. One realizes that they’re praying to the vaccum of space… which is just as ridiculous, and just as ineffective!
