God is Class

According to Aquinas, God is the entity whose essence is its existence.

This is all fine and dandy of course, except for one thing: nobody has any idea in Hell what it means. Which is too bad. However, for the narrow segment of humanity known as "Java Programmers," I have a solution. If the world were written in Java, God would be Class. That's right, God is the class Class. Not only that, but he is the static self instantiation of that class (a singleton class if you will.) Though, this doesn't quite get there. Being that Java is only a partially OOP language, God is also Object, and java.exe, but that's taking the analogy a little further than it needs to be taken.

That was moving. It was deep, as if you were talking to the audience that is your audience.

Marshner would be proud.

I can't decide whether you are being sarcastic or serious, man.
