I was discussing this this morning at work.
The Pope is - supposedly - God's Representative on Earth. So if the Cardinals are having trouble deciding, to my mind that proves that none of them are getting any divine guidance on the subject. Which to me is clear proof that their god doesn't exist. If people were voting for a guy who was going to be my "voice" to my creation for the next few decades, a guy whose words billions would accept as unerrant truth direct from the mind of god......I'd be making DAMN sure that they got the right guy in the job, and whispering "vote Bob" in every Cardinal's ear.
Whisper? Heck, I'd be SHOUTING it. Get the wrong guy in this job and millions of people could be getting their salvation wrong. So any indecision on the Cardinals part either proves there IS no god - or that there is a god, but he just doesn't give a stuff.
