    Calvin’s argument sounds somewhat logical, but it seems like there is a bigger concern. If we die and it turns out that we are ushered into the presence of Almighty God, it is we mere humans who will be instantly awestruck, and we will be the ones who will suddenly turn into big chickens.

    @The Snoopster: Not literally. If we were actual chickens, Heaven wouldn’t know what to do with all the giant eggs.

    Eat the chicken and take your chances.

    You’d be last in the pecking order, that’s what.

    Don’t worry, be happy. When you are dead you are dead.

    You should pull this line for some yukky vegetable Calvin. But then again, “what if God is a brussel sprout?” just… isn’t…

    I don’t want to think about that, nobody will grasp this, we are alive. To trust god is best!

    @kuren444: If God is really an old man with a white beard, the consequences shouldn’t be too major, except that in Heaven we may have to speak a little louder and remind him of a few things from time to time.

    Could give new meaning to some Biblical passages, such as, “Shout to God with loud songs of joy,” and, “God will remember your sins no more.”

    And, like Calvin, perhaps we should be concerned with our actions in this life – especially toward old men with long white beards (Santa Claus and the like).

    I’m already going to Hell for other things I’ve done, so I might as well eat the chicken.

    How do you make that ? Rat simply strung a sentence together with a reasonable proposition (for Rat).

    Mute=soundless, unable to speak.
    Moot = debatable; also, the ancient Saxon legislative body.

    I would think that Calvin’s hypothetical Chicken Almighty would warn of the consequences of eating birds created in His image. That’s one of the logical consequences of believing in theistic poultry. Now if the Big Chicken were deist or pantheist in nature, then no problem that I can foresee. Likewise if Buddha were a chicken – we’d all have to stop denying our chicken nature anyway.

    You can tell it’s 2:24 PM CDT here, can’t you? :))

    Today’s “Kliban” goes nicely with this…

    I have to admit though, Calvin is creative here – even if not necessarily original.
