Mr. Deity

June 30, 2009

For the past month and a half, I have been going though a phase that I can only refer to as “blog-fatigue”. With  increasing work-loads (due to layoffs in our company) and imminent deadlines, finding time for this hobby has been difficult of late. Researching and writing posts for my blog and reading my favorite blogs and commenting on them has taken a backseat to the more immediate need of meeting deadlines.

I have learnt from experience that momentum and habit is a very important aspect  of blogging (or anything for that matter). Once the momentum slackens, it takes much more effort to revive a blog. In fact, that’s probably one of the reasons why so many blogs disappear into oblivion after a promising start (I guess, in addition to something that every blogger goes through – writer’s block).

So, with that in mind, I have decided to keep posting bits and pieces of interesting news, videos, links etc that I have come across to keep up the momentum and save the longer posts for times when I am more available to think and write about them.

Btw, I would also like to apologize to the readers of this blog for not being regular in replying to your comments or not managing to read some of your blogs. I hope to find more time soon to go through them.

Well, here are a few hilarious videos I came across from the famous Mr. Deity series, satirizing the God of the Bible. In these series of videos (there’s about 22 of them as of this writing and you can find them at  mrdeity.com or on youtube) God is seen discussing his plans with his assistant and Jesus about creation, evil, sin, the fate of humanity and various other things on earth. The videos are hilarious. Check them out.

Season 1. Episode 1. (God creates evil)

Season 1. Episode 2 (God talks to Jesus. Jesus thinks he’s being punk’d by God)

Season 1. Episode 5 (God’s on-again/off-again girlfriend Lucifer/Satan calls God)

Extra: God gives Superbowl press conference with Jesus

Btw, I wish there were similar satire available on hindu and muslim god/prophets.

    Hi!

    See, this time I didn’t miss your blog if that’s any consolation. 🙂

    To save your time, I’m giving you the link to a recent post that has partly to do with your blog, and just scroll down to the bottom of the post.

    I just hope and wish you stay happy, blogging or no blogging. 😉

    Have a nice day!

    Take care.

      Thanks Indyeah for the encouragement. Yes, I will be back to blogging. It’s quite fun actually so even though I am irregular, I will keep posting. Btw, I have only partially read the 2nd part of the interview and need to finish reading it.
