Hear God's voice for 24.95$ ! / What they say about us

"Author Offers Guaranteed Method for Hearing God’s Voice in New Book"

Rev. Mark Virkler, Ph.D., president of Communion With God Ministries (...) and author of over 50 books, is guaranteeing that his latest release, How to Hear God’s Voice (Destiny Image, $24.95), will ensure every reader who follows the steps described will hear the voice of God for themselves. Dr. Virkler says that two decades of conducting seminars on this topic on six continents with a virtual 100% success rate (...).

You have the solution to the mysteries of the universe and... you sell it in book form for 24.95$ a pop ? Instead of telling the world about it ? What Christian rationality and generosity.

The blog God is for Suckers presents a compilation of data apparently accumulated over a number of discussions on Christian message boards. Its conclusions are not really that surprising :

The entire experience can be summed up fairly easily. Generally speaking, they know next to nothing about atheists, they are extremely emotionally attached to their deities, and they are just people looking for truth as we are. The animosity that sparks between atheists and theists seems to stem from the two camps speaking two different languages - atheists speak in terms of empirical evidence and logic; theists speak in terms of faith, emotion, and the unknown. An atheist expects proof before acceptance, a theists sees acceptance as proof.

Guaranteed? If you don't hear god do you get your $$ back? Also, which god are we talking about? Does he sell different volumes for different dieties? Maybe a boxed set for the Greek pantheon.....

Wow! Has anyone sent a gift-wrapped copy to the Pope yet? Do you need Verizon Wireless? Details! What does he say? "The world will end in T-minus 20 years, three days, and two minutes and counting?" Or, "Thank you for praying to me, all lines are busy right now, but your call will be answered in the order in which it was received. Average wait time is currently 115 years." Or, "Always drink Ovaltine?" If I'm going to spend a whole $24.95, I want to hear something more important than, "Now where did I put those protozoa?" I mean, if this book is a gyp, I can't even send it to my imaginary friend, Dr. Samuel Johnson for consumption in his Bible Burning Steam Calliope. He's awful picky about what he puts in there.
