probably think it was a hoax. (delete, block sender) If I became convinced it was real, I would probably have a mental breakdown.

I accidently put God on my spam list.

In return he put me on his.

I definately came out the loser on that exchange.

But I'm feeling much better now.

Actually, I believe God has better, more authorative ways of communicating to his chosen one than via e-mail.

There is always Fed-Ex.

Given Fed-Ex's connection to Kinkos, I'm skeptical that he has any alliance there. I think he might use UPS or DHL or something, though.

After working for a shipping company, I'm convinced when it comes to packages there is nothing safe, sacred, or special about the process.

He would use a personal courier.

EDIT: And can I get an amen to Megan's Kinko's reference.

I'd reply asking for more details. After all, if he's trying to find another one, he must have realized the last one didn't work out so well.

I'd probably be tempted to reply something like "No offense, Almighty, but if you really want me to enter into a life-altering course I'd rather see something along the lines of a burning bush than the common tool of ten million spammers."

Is the email domain dot god or dot com? That's how you could tell if it's real or not.

Megan,
God likes it when you bump the "God, you say" thread.

I was reminded of the Nigerian millionaire scam emails too - with emails from God, I'd probably just archive them. I'd be tempted to reply and try to mess with him, but I don't know if I actually would...just in case.

If God emailed me and said I was Chosen to be his saviour I would explain to him that I'm very sorry but I only help those who help themselves.

What's wrong with Kinkos?

I'm married to a Kinko's employee. They're really evil. If I somehow got on God's email list, I'd ask Him to e-mail my husband and tell him to get a better job.

I'd tell him to get rid of AOL and then maybe we'd talk.

And when I say get rid of AOL, I don't mean stop using it as his default browser.

E-mail him that I got the message the other ten or twenty times. Then I would ask him for directions to "Mount Zion" and what kind of shoes to wear.

The email to me would end by saying, “I know who you are” and “I know what you are looking for”

I would think: "Wow, that is weird...the matrix”

and then I would wait for the next email that said “follow the white rabbit”.

A few seconds following this email, there will be a knock at my door and...
