Here it is:
Relying on the Bible as proof of God's existence is like relying on a comic book as proof of Superman's existence
I know there are those who will say that the Bible is "God inspired", but I thought this was rather clever.
What do you think?

Relying on a book to prove that things stated in that book are true is kind of silly. Especially with all the extraordinary claims made in the book.
They may laugh at the example we use to show how silly it is, but it is no different. If you read Superman and believe in flying humans with super power you must have faith in that belief as they is no evidence to support such a claim. This is the same faith needed to believe in talking snakes, virgin births, and a supreme being.
It is EXACTLY the same. Only thing is I rather if people believed in superman, as his morals are a lot better than the Bibles.

Brutal fact of life- it is because they looked at your info and decided not to interview you. To increase you chances, beat feet all over town and submit applications or resumes. You might have to apply to 10-15 places to get one interview, and 5 interviews to get a job. Do the math, that is 50 to 75 applications.
You mean superman isn't real? I have no reason to go on now. /cry /lifequit
Lol, but seriously, very good analogy. I know I've heard that before somewhere, but can't nail down where. Penn & Teller or http://whywontgodhealamputees.com/ perhaps? or maybe a Kevin Smith movie. Now you have to tell what it's from before I go crazy trying to remember lol!
I agree for the most part with it, but I think the bible is a little less like a comic book and a little more like a game of telephone. Ever play that when you were a kid? You whisper something to someone, they pass it along to the next person, and by the time you go around the circle it's something completely different. If the bible was even written by who supposedly wrote it- directed with god's inspiration or whatever- it's been around a long time in a lot of languages and revisions. It probably is very far off from what it said when it was written.

God is not a man, nor the Bible a comic, and
supernatural is still natural of natural/spiritual.
Go on to the spiritual, isn't so carnal mindead.
Your clever re-lying scenario is still lying x2;
For eternal God has no begin of days, like Bible,
nor any end of life, like law folk do, who all perish.
What the Bible actually says, about inspired,
is all script-u-are (not "contrary" scriptures) is
what is given by inspiration of God: 2Tim 3:16
what the allegory-ic script-u-are saith is:
"cast out the bondwoman and her son" (Gal 4),
means flush law and result of law: sin and death.

It's not a fair analogy. We can still talk to Superman writers (at least some of them) and they would tell you it's fictional.
The bible is so old and comes from so many sources that we don't know how much is historical fact, how much is myth, hearsay or purely made up by the writer.

It's ok for a flip answer, but it would be better to equate the Bible to any and all other religious "holy texts", like the Book of the Dead.

Originally Answered: Why haven't I heard back after a job interview?
If you haven't heard back from a company within 5-7 business days, then it is safe to assume that you did not get the job. Here are some tip(s) to use going forward:
1. If a recruiter and/or hiring manager is definitely interested in you, they will not tell you about other candidates they are interviewing, regardless of position in a company. They will say "are you available for an on-site interview next week once I know availability of a hiring manager". If you get "we are interviewing other candidates for this position as well and once we're done, we will notify you to come on-site for an interview", 9/10 means you are not considered for this position.
2. You must give a recruiter/hiring manager time to response. If you interview and send a thank you note on friday(2/8), it is best practice to wait five(5) business days(2/15) to send a follow-up letter. If you send a follow up letter before that time, then it makes you sound pushy and desperate. Recruiters and Hiring Managers do not like this.
3. If you had your phone interview on 08-Feb, send your thank you letter on 08-Feb & follow-up email on 11-Feb and have yet to receive a response from your designated recruiter, then you did not get the position. It's time to move on to another company.
** Its not that you're not qualified for the position in which you're applying, its just that it is a competitive job market b/c of the recession. Don't lose confidence or self-esteem. Just keep going out there and selling yourself for the jobs in which you're applying for.
Hope this helps.
