We Need More Iron Chariots
God can create the universe, but this little bit of technology is too much for him.
I've figured out how to make God stop punishing us with tornadoes and hurricanes and flooding. (Apparently, God can't just send a swarm of locusts to one person's apartment, he needs to take out an entire city.) It's right there in the Bible: iron chariots.
And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.
So, if you want to make your house safe from acts of God, just park an iron chariot in the front lawn. God is powerless before them.
