He stared off really well, I mean, creating everything, that’s damn impressive. Admittedly, He never came anywhere close to repeating that, but He did manage to flood the entire earth, which is mighty spectacular indeed. Then again, He never actually topped that one either, but He was still wiping out cities and sending down huge plagues and stuff like that.
By the time Jesus comes along He’s walking on water and whipping up masses of fish sandwiches. Both impressive party tricks, but it’s a long way off spontaneously creating the entire universe.
And today? No miacles at all. Apart from the occassional face on a potato.
So, if the miracles are getting smaller and smaller, God must be getting less and less powerful as time goes by. It’s the only explanation.
Unless, of course, there were never any miracles in the first place and as time has progressed and science developed we’ve become more used to the natural world and have less need to reach for divine explanations for unusual events and they had rational causes all along.
But, y’know, it’s probably just GodFlu or something.
