The greatest enemy of truth

“God” is giving “Bob” an oral exam as part of his application to renew his Prophet’s License.

As the examination draws to a close, “God” asks the final question:

“Final question. It’s a tough one, especially for a clergyman, and it counts double, so you get three tries. What is the greatest enemy of truth?”

J. R. "Bob" Dobbs“Bob” concentrated. “Ah … the self?”

“Close.”

“Fear?”

“Closer.”

“Belief?”

“Still closer, but no Pipe.” “God” spoke into the intercom. “Horus, could You please page the next Anointed?”

“But wait a minute-” blurted “Bob.” “What’s the answer?”

“God” smiled at him sympathetically. “Consensus.”

– From The Real Story by Pope Michael Peppe, collected in Three-Fisted Tales of “Bob”

    I love it. The graphic adds to the experience too. For some reason, I love those older generation graphics.
