      Which Deity?

      If you HAD to choose, monotheistically, who truly rules over all?

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      There is nothing to choose from. We do not have a choice. We can only hope to be eaten first.
      Jujutsu is the gentle art. It's the art where a small man is going to prove to you, no matter how strong you are, no matter how mad you get, that you're going to have to accept defeat. That's what jujutsu is.

      Pasta actually predates all monotheistic religions. In fact it predates almost all modern day religions, except maybe Hinduism, but any monotheistic aspects in Hinduism came far later. Since you said god we have to assume you are talking about some religion with a single god. In that case, pasta existed thousands of years before god. So I have to side with the flying Spaghetti, because there is evidence pasta before the others even existed.

      Ironically, if you look at the young earth creationist view of the world, you would see that the world came into existence at around the time that people first started eating pasta. While Christianity itself, wasn't practiced during the creation of the earth(using young earth time line), and for quiet some time after.

      So you're saying because man invented pasta before man invented God, if there is a God it must be pasta?

      Well you said we had to pick, so given the choices it is the more likely option. Because if god has always existed, then he should be around longer right? It doesn't make sense that an all powerful god came after everything. You can do research and find the early evidence of religions and find out where they came from, and you can do the same for pasta.

      Also you could make the argument that pasta comes from wheat and wheat has been farmed for over 10,000 years. Wheat probably predates humans. So in a way the pasta has always been here. While god was invented way later, only after man started to create religion.

      Too bad this galaxy of ours is just a pit stop for the Great Old Ones. What is 10,000 years compared to those countless aeons that They have roamed in the vast universum?

      I would pick Jesus still...because all you have to do is believe in him and you get eternal paradise. I mean, you cant get a much more easy going god than that.

      I once thought about that paradise bit. In all religions, I mean, not just christianity. If you think of it, God is a bit of a dick, isn't he? He has flooded world with water and smited towns, created strange rules to follow and such. He has shown that he can be a real dick sometimes. And your reward is that you can spend eternity... with him.

      Sucks balls.

      Justin Bieber is actually Nyarlathotep in disguised form. I have to say, he did choose a horrible shell to inhabit. Not as classy as his previous incarnations. But beware my friends, for he is gathering followers. Chaos will reign soon enough...

      Nah too short. Maybe Abhoth. I really don't see Nyarlathotep in any form less than 6 and a half feet tall

      Amita Buddha...But I think you have to chant the title of the Diamond Sutra or some bullshit like that. But then you get reborn in the Heaven to the West so that ain't too bad a deal. You can even be a total dick as long as you give enough money to the monks.

      Whenever I see "Zeus" I always pronounce it "Zey-us" in my head. There was a point when I thought that's probably closer to how the greeks pronounced it when you consider all the other greek or latin words that end with -us. Then I realized those are english pronunciations and greeks pronounce it all way differently. But I still pronounce it that way just to be ostentatious.
