Could there be a god? Is my lack of faith misplaced? This report made me question my non-faith:
Scientists at Okayama University in Japan have rather agreeably discovered that unidentified compounds in lager and stout may help to prevent DNA damage leading to cancer.
Oh, wait, if there is one, it is a capricious and unjust god:
Since the mice were refreshed with non-alcoholic beer, the scientists cannot confirm that “moderate consumption of normal beer has any anti-cancer benefits”.
Instead of banning such, religions could attract converts by promising spiritual redemption through high states of intoxication, gratuitous sex, and trash-TV-watching. Hey, the Christians appropriated Saturnalia, so why not?
Update: I need to post when less “intoxificated”.
