"And do you think I am limited in making that sentient life look like you self-proclaimed evolved humans, so many of whom are dedicated to primping and preening?" 

"Sir, with all that space out there I reckon you could make life look like all those I see in Star Wars and Star Trek and more."

"Good deduction funny-looking white male earthling," chuckles God, as his cloud rollicks a bit. And a picture of Buddha rubbing his tummy evolves.

"Consequently, do you think that I am more concerned tallying the time you spend in church, mosque, temple, etc., chanting, praying and repeating words than I am with the time you spend doing good to and with the other sentient beings with which I have populated your blue pearl?

"Look at my action-oriented, less patient than I, Gabriel.  He observes the nonsensical talk, continued environmental defiling, climate disasters, hungry people, and stupid wars too often promulgated on my blue-green pearl?  Should I acquiesce in his call for raging action?"

To avoid an answer, I ask. "Kneeling before statues counts a lot less than trying to do good where needs exist?"

"Gabriel, did you hear that?   An earthling asks through a rhetorical question a reasoned, logical deduction," as God's clouds moves toward the left on my monitor and a picture reminiscent of Rodin's thinker appears -- pondering what we doth do.

"Yes, Lord.   As you so often say 'There is always hope.'"

"Sir, could I raise another earthly religious issue?"

"Proceed, Earth boy."

"Does it matter what religious banner one prays under?"

"Ah, we are back to the logic behind 'choices.' On earth, you were raised under one of its largest religion, Christianity, where, as in other earthly religions, its teachings warn its followers that 'pride' is often touted as the deadliest sin, the precursor to all other, what Christians define as, mortal sins.   Some of your philosophers refer to it as the mother of all sins.   Correct?"

"That's how I was taught to understand it from catechism books, sermons, nuns, priests, Jesuit teachers."

"And some of your philosophers and religious historians and story tellers have me casting Lucifer out of heaven because he committed the sin of pride, correct?"

"That was one of the stories I was told."
