"'How can I possibly repay You? How can I be of service?' That, and 'Why does it have get below 32 degrees around here?'"

"Well, I'm a deist. I subscribe to the 'watchmaker' theorem, which says you just wind the watch and let it run. You don't touch it after that. God made the universe, and once that happened, He's just sitting there on His big sofa watching us. So I would ask: 'Is humanity amusing to You? Do You get a kick out of us, or are You indifferent?' Whether God cares about us in the afterlife, I'm not sure -- but from what I can tell, He certainly doesn't care about us while we're here."

"There's a million things I'd like to know from God: 'Is this all there is? Is this the only chance I get to get it right, or do I get a few more chances without knowing it?'"

Author and Local Historian
"I was at Kennedy Space Center working on a book, and I was interviewing a fellow there. I asked him what he did, and he said, 'Well, I track this particular space probe.' He'd been doing this for twelve years, and it was still going, all these minutes, all these days, into infinity. And I thought, 'This universe is a magnificent place, and God put it all in operation.' So, to answer the question, I'd be so awed by meeting the Lord, I would be speechless.

"I would want to know where the good fishing holes are, because I never catch anything when I go out, and I try just about everything -- every live bait you can imagine, lures, bobber, no bobber, cast from the shore, cast from the boat. It's just not happening for me, and I need some divine intervention. I would also like to know where to find some good morels."
