Blasphemy! You sir have insulted my religion and I demand an apology.
There is no evidence to the contrary that Matt Mullenweg is not
currently God , therefore I reserve the right to believe him to be
so. Just like you can neither disprove Christianity (nor prove it for
that matter either).
Also, I kind of killed a few goats and kind of drank their blood, so
like, um, I'll feel really stupid if Matt wasn't God. (Hail Satan!)
 His saying to the contrary of himself being god doesn't not prove
that he is not god.
