Someone with a better working theological base ought to throw together God’s resume.

Previous work: Universal Engineer, Prehistory – Present, tasks included modeling consistent physics, making everything, smiting

Skills: transubstantiation, omniscience, omnipotence

Hobbies: Appearing to random people in unexpected places, more smiting

In some ways the strip and in all ways the bonus panel address the omnipotence paradox. As a filling between bread aficionado, I prefer the stoner version with its mouthwatering and unthinkably large sandwiches. Despite my agnostic-leaning-to-athiest tendencies, I see a lot of sense in the Christian Apologist defense to the paradox: God can no more create such a sandwich than he can divine 1+1=3; both are equally semantic nonsense. Who would have thought applying reason to religion could help it appear more, well, reasonable?
