1 The fool[a] says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.
2 The Lord looks down from heaven
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.
3 All have turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.
4 Do all these evildoers know nothing?
They devour my people as though eating bread;
they never call on the Lord.
5 But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,
but the Lord is their refuge.
7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the Lord restores his people,
let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

The universe was created in a sudden huge explosion, no?

Sort of like when you overcook something in the microwave--have you ever done that? The Big Bang.
I did it on a gas stove with some hard boiled eggs I forgot about once.

Damn things just disappeared along with all the water.

Then I looked up...

Too bad we humans are too stupid to get a good, scientific reading on God...

Well, according to the Necronomicon, the fool says in his heart that Cthulhu is not real. Since your bible has zero evidence supporting it, I'll go with the Necronomicon on this one.

I did the same thing, but with a can, unopened, of condensed milk. The water boiled down, and all of a sudden I heard a huge explosion. It was lucky I wasn't in the kitchen because the can blew up and there was goop all over the ceiling, walls.

If it hadn't exploded it would have been a milk dud.

Ya well, the Nicene Creed also knew that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit were three beings in one Holy Trinity.
So what's the difference between just saying someone is a god and someone is a superhuman?

It's the same thing. You're adding a claim on top of a claim. It doesn't actually SUPPORT the initial claim.

INTERPRETATION

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.
Four worms were placed into four separate jars.
The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.
At the conclusion of the sermon, the minister reported the following results:
The first worm in alcohol- Dead
The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead
Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead
Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive.

So the minister asked the congregation,

'What did you learn from this demonstration???'

Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said,

'As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!'

That pretty much ended the service.
