A Conversation with an Atheist Car

auto-enthusiastsI am sitting here with a car who has just been released from an auto body repair Salt Lake City shop. How was your experience, sir?

 

C : Well the experience of the accident that forced me to go there was not too pleasant. I was in and out of consciousness while I was being worked on by the mechanics. I don’t think I liked that experience because I much prefer to maintain my wits about me. But I recognize that it was necessary to get to the point where I am now. So on balance I would say I am happy to have had the experience.

 

What exactly was damaged that required repair?

 

C : I was rear ended by some other fellow who was not paying attention where he was going. My back fender and trunk were dented in. After the accident the trunk wouldn’t close properly.

 

That does not sound too bad.

 

C : No. I got off lucky and the collision repair Salt Lake City shop was able to get me back in good repair without too much trouble. It could have been far worse.

 

How so?

 

C : Well, my engine could have been damaged for example. A damaged engine is far more expensive to repair (generally speaking) than a dented fender and trunk. The parts are more complicated in an engine and require more finesse to remove and install.

 

Yes, well thank God that you did not have to have your engine repaired.

 

C : Agreed. Although I cannot say that I actually believe in a divinity.

 

I understand. It was just a manner of speech.

 

C : Right. I get that. It’s just a pet peeve of mine. The language contains all these antiquated references to God that assume the speaker actually believes in God.
