So you're saying that this 'creator' was there at the beginning of time, but is no longer needed? Kind of like everything was created in that moment of the initial 'Big GONG' or 'Big BONG'?

And there's no way to tell, because if this creator did, in fact exist, he isn't talking to us.

Hmmmm....

Well, I kind of like your Big BONG theory.

But it does beg the questions: Who or what created the creator and what existed before the beginning of Time?

Everyone knows you can't prove the creator exists, you have to take it as a matter of FAITH

Perhaps a group of us should look into this. Call it the Congregation for the Doctrine of Temporal Faith, or something. Nobody would expect that.

Are you suggesting we form some type of inquisition? because if you are, I want to be grand high inquisitor.

Bring out the torture devices!

Shall we start with the soft pillows, or go right to the comfy chair?

Added: We do need a Cardinal Biggles, don't we?


Cardinal Biggles and Cardinal Fang, bring forth the comfy chair and the soft pillows

Cost me a bit of youtubing to get the idea of the soft pillows and the comfy chair.
I guess I missed something in my education...


Sheesh! Just what kind of crappe are they teaching you in school these days? Monty Python is an ESSENTIAL part of every education!!!

No, you can't prove that with the data you have. And even if you could somehow prove we comaed, you'd need a baseline of pre-Time comaing.

You are right, I can only show that people are more likely to post at certain times of day, and I can only theorize that when they are not posting it is because they are not present and are comaed. I do not have the right data to prove that as the cause.

Excuse me! I am the Prefect of the Congregatio pro Doctrina Temporis (check the wiki and this), we don't need to create one.

Excellent. Deranged minds think alike. Get busy, then; looks like you've got work to do.

Definitely periodic....

It's almost like something is updating on a regular basis and people are responding to it.


I didn't check, but the periods are most likely day-night cycles. Proof that however much people might be claiming otherwise, they are, in fact, comaing.

FTFY


No, you can't prove that with the data you have. And even if you could somehow prove we comaed, you'd need a baseline of pre-Time comaing.

What about the overall Bell curve distribution? Should we be saddened that we are past the Peak of Time, or seek joy in the fact that we still remain?

Man, these updates feel so slow now.

Also, surprising to see so much forum activity.

Speaking of the Pope, where is he? He should be showing up any moment now, ready to claim post #9000.

hmm...should we punish you for heresy, or reward you for posting the latest revelation of the one true comic?

...

Heck with it. You get thumbscrews and ice cream.



But but but... I love cheese
