God has a sick sense of humor

These are real pictures of a real person with a real affliction:

I’m sorry, God. I don’t know if You exist, but You’re definitely off the Christmas card list this year.1 Doctors, welcome aboard!

    Why are you so quick to blame God??? Do you not know there is evil??? The very ignorance of this fact is probably what led to this condition in the first place. Duh! God doesn’t do this to people. What kind of theological lies have you bought into? To blame God for evil is a serious offense.

    How would you like it if I blamed YOU for the problem? It’s easy to blame whomever, but that doesn’t make it true.

    How twisted your world view must be if you blame God, the creator of heaven and earth, for atrocities. Twisted indeed.

      Assuming this comment is sincere and not sarcastic (and who can tell with my commenters?), I submit the following: if the God you refer to is the traditional Christian God who is said to be omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent, then it doesn’t matter how this poor man came by his affliction. All that matters is that God knows about it, has the power to fix it, and yet does not. Naturally, this is an overly simplified argument that can be applied to anyone in a shitty situation, but the Tree Man’s condition is more fearsomely awful than most and, in my opinion, powerful evidence against at least one of God’s three aforementioned character traits.

      Can you please remove this comment. This photo is being associated with me and it’s really gross. I appreciate it… You can keep the comment, just make my name anonymous, please. Thanks! Have a great day!

        That’s…incredible. And, you’ve gotta admit: kind of hilarious. And I can see how this would be an unappealing association for you on ye olde Internet. However, I have to say, I did a pretty thorough Google web and image search, and I didn’t see this image appear anywhere with your name attached to it (unless it’s on like the 20th results page or something). Where is it appearing? I’m morbidly curious.
