Imagine a world in which generations of human beings come to believe that certain films were made by God or that specific software was coded by him. Imagine a future in which millions of our descendants murder each other over rival interpretations of Star Wars or Windows 98. Could anything -- anything -- be more ridiculous? And yet, this would be no more ridiculous than the world we are living in.
-Sam Harris, author (1967- )

I think that's a really cool quote... Something I hadn't really thought of before, but hey, it's totally feasible! If the human race lasts that long...

I always suspected the "holy books" people preach today are actually based on the results of an ancient version of NaNoWriMo, but I didn't want to say anything. :)

That's wicked interesting to think about! Regardless of views on the topic, it's like thinking about the end of the universe -- so far off that it's possible, but it makes your head hurt after too long.
