Therefore god exists.

More from this wonderfully original thinker here:

After watching that video I've gone from anger to thinking this is a joke. It has to be.

One thing has been bugging me since this thread's inception (brilliant move btw), is there any chance our beloved John could also be our beloved JC?

Oh sweet ****ing Jesus, between that and his ramblings about transport I wonder if there's anything he isn't completely ignorant of. I saw him on Reeling in the Years speaking at some student rally back in the day so I assume there must be something he has a clue about.

This is a truly stupendous thought. Those of ye who have had the patience to endure Captain Capslock's posting style must start reviewing the book exerpts and see if it truly is he.

Also I said I wasn't going to tell 4chan, but that doesn't mean I didn't tell somethingawful.

This occurred to me also, but somebody matching JC's description showed up at a meeting in the Science Gallery in Dublin last year and Mr May doesn't resemble him all that much.

I think that JC uses those initials for a very specific religious reason.

Oh Dear. That video was something else . He actually believes what he is saying. He really believes he is forming a scientific argument.

That would be entertaining, but very unlikely. This guy's spiritual beliefs are pretty far removed from JC's. Let's just say he's the kind of guy who would be more at home in the Spirituality Forum than in the Christianity Forum.

Great advertising for a self-published book written by someone no-one's ever heard of. The guy should be in PR.

That is a horrible down side to this. Ideally this should be ignored completely, but a Minister is acting very innopropriately so at least all the media attention is bad attention at the moment. Obviously he will sell more books, just hopefully not very many in total.

The thought of that makes me want to cry. Even imagining the possibility is horrific

It's worth an idiot getting a few minutes of fame and a little cash (looks like he's not massively short on it to begin with) to rightly put a Government Minister to shame.

What if some of the people who read it actually believe what he says?
