I was wondering if somewhere in the bible, which I read but not perused, it was hinted that god has a sense of humor.

What do you think?

@Francis,
I've read the Bible cover to cover many times, and never seen anything I felt was an indication that he has a sense of humor from the text itself but have seen many people claim he has a sense of humor based on what they believe he created (such as the platypus, humans, etc).

@Robert Gentel,
I came to the very same conclusion but I thought that maybe someone else has another input..

Implicitly by his/her own creations, an observer can tell that god was/is a wicked funny guy..

Humor ? I think not.
Sadism - certainly! ("sacrifice" of Isaac).

@Francis,
What I think is irrelevant. There's no "i" in humor.

Or "u", for that matter.

There's no 'u' in 'dick', but 'u' are one, all the same.

i kinda looked at the whole araham/isaac thing as the original punk'd

then there's that whole setting free the jews, oops, just kidding, now you have to wander in the desert for 40 years

hilarious

i can imagine god as a kid just sitting around, creating ants and suns and magnifying glasses, what a little scamp

Perhaps one could suggest that it there were a god, the humor were unintentional . . . you know, Protestants, chosen people, covenant, etc. . . .

@Letty,
On Sundays, we heathens dance around a bonfire. (Not the one of the vanities, though.)

So an immortal being comes along and divinely inspires a book (or maybe several books) and drop it into hands of some local yokels who still think the sun is a flaming chariot crossing the sky. Then having left not a trace of his own existence on even the tiniest molecule anywhere on the planet he slips away and never returns, leaving the locals to try to make sense of the *book* as an incongruity to the world around them. Pretty funny if you ask me.

Psalm 59:7 See what they spew from their mouths-- they spew out swords from their lips, and they say, "Who can hear us?" 8 But you, O Lord, laugh at them; you scoff at all those nations. Psalm 2:4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs. Just look in the mirror of course. Anyone can get in on the joke being played.

It seems self-evident to me that, whether or not your boy god has a sense of humor, his followers don't.

@Setanta,
I remember sister Mary Attila used to tell us that she loved a cuppa tea, especially Adoramus Te. Get it? Adoramus Te? Im sure there is another varietal of Glorificamus Te too.
