An eternal twist

Read something that i thought was definitely worth sharing.

If you had to choose between a woman you had met the day before and God, who would you choose? And the weaver said, The woman. Is there any doubt about that?
And the mullah asked him, If you had to choose between a song and God, what would you pick? And the weaver said,The song, of course.
And the priest from the temple asked him, Weaver, if perforce you had to choose one or the other, a beautiful sunset or God, what would your choice be? And he said, Isn't it obvious? The sunset.
And they asked him how he could blaspheme so. And the weaver said, Why sirs, God has eternity on his side, he can always wait. Will the woman, the song or the sunset wait for me?
God's Little Soldier, Kiran Nagarkar

until next time, maybe there is no right answer...

kavi: so the question begs itself - does the theory of god lend itself to logic?

prero: thats assuming he is willing to do it for you, isnt it? :)
