So I’m just sitting around when my Google chat pops up.
3:57 PM kyle: russel you got a second
3:58 PM ill get ahold of you
There follows a brief pause as I look Kyle up in my email history, because I have no idea who this is. Turns out I had two email exchanges with him, and it’s abundantly clear that he’s a theist, and that his reason for believing is of the “You can’t prove me wrong” variety.
I don’t want to encourage private chats with someone I don’t like, but I’m not feeling the urge to be too rude, so I go along with only slightly testy non-encouragement.
3:59 PM me: I’m at work. What do you need?
No answer for a few minutes, so I check again.
4:06 PM me: Yes?
4:11 PM kyle: i have a song that has a glory in it.. most the song will be annoying but if you wana hear Gabriel listen in with logic of course
[My inner thoughts: You have a what what in the what now?]
4:12 PM me: Why would I be interested in listening to something annoying?
kyle: not all of it
4:13 PM its all good if your ever intrested let me know
me: Why is it that you’re wanting me to hear it?
4:14 PM kyle: there is a recorded part in it that has no effects and is a angel singing
[Undt how long haff you felt zis vay?]
me: And how do you know that?
4:15 PM kyle: because im one
me: You’re an angel.
me: Nice to meet you.
me: What kind of superpowers do you have?
4:16 PM i cant share anything with a fool
me: You’re the one who said you were an angel, I assume you’re having fun with me. I was just playing along.
kyle: lol ill talk to ya later
Oh, snap! He called me a fool! I guess God exists.
