    Talking God steals your $10

    So http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16956 got me thinking.

    One day you open up your Paypal account to find that God has taken $10.00 from you. If you don't have a Paypal account or don't believe in God pretend for a second you do.

    You read the message and it says the following:

    I've taken this as a punishment for spending money on closed source software.

    What do you do?

    God is closed source. I doubt he would punish you for supporting the way he works.

    "He works in mysterious ways."

    Now if he was opensource, he wouldn't be so mysterious now would he?

    Maybe he doesn't like competition.

    Even so, just as you said, he works in mysterious ways, so who knows what he'll punish you for.

    well my obvious option would be to accept the loss. If god wants to take my money he can, after all, HE'S GOD!!!

    No-one can overthrow Paypal I'd open a dispute, get my money back, and get God some bad PR in the process (for claiming I'd have wasted money on that, when I haven't)

    I think they have a disclaimer which makes them not responsible for Acts of God.

    Well people have been trying to reverse engineer His work from the beginning of time.

    There can only be one conclusion. Since God only practices closed source then Richard Stallman has to be the anti-Christ.

    Man, that's just not cool. Punishing me for buying games and actually rewarding devs for the fruits of their efforts? That's just uncouth. World of Goo is worth $30 just as much as it is $20, but injustice is injustice.

    And that's just the tip of the iceberg-- console games are software, too.

    No, He is definitely open, but some people have closed minds :> We just sometimes don't understand the Source.

    And GPL is the most Christian license.

    Btw. openness is something natural. For example we can read DNA sentences.
