Does God Have a Sense of Humor?

Rarely is the sense of humor of God discussed or analyzed, but there are many compelling reasons to conclude that God does have a sense of humor:

  • logic: man has a sense of humor, and man was created in the image of God. Hence God has a sense of humor.
  • history: man's sense of humor improved with the discovery and expansion of Christianity, which indicates their strong correlation.
  • politics: atheistic political figures are known for their lack of a sense of humor, such as Attila the Hun and Adolf Hitler, which suggests that the opposite of God is a lack of sense of humor.
  • religious: the encounter on the road to Emmaus, described at Luke 25:13-31, strongly suggests that God has intervened in amusing ways; also, God sometimes uses sarcasm, as in Amos 4:4.
  • scientific: snowstorms have disrupted global warming conferences; regions that promote the global warming hoax have been subjected to brutally cold weather.
  • athletic: Tim Tebow's completion of ten passes for 316 yards, at 31.6 yards per competition, in his stunning playoff victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers, echoed his promotion of John 3:16.
  • zoology: there are various animals, such as the duck-billed platypus, that seem designed in order to amuse.
  • atheism: atheistic nations like North Korea are known for their lack of a sense of humor.
  • ontological: God is defined as the greatest being conceivable, and it's better to have a sense of humor than not; therefore God has a sense of humor.
  • intrinsic humor: some humor is funny to virtually everyone who has a sense of humor - which would be impossible in the absence of intrinsic humor. Yet intrinsic humor would be impossible unless God appreciated it also.
  • contradictions and disbelief: contradictions and surprise are the essence of humor, and God's allowance of their basis to continue to exist suggests that God may find amusement in it.
  • implausible absurdities: the election outcome for the 2000 presidential election was implausibly close in Florida, and apparently Al Gore lost because some Democrat voters misread the "butterfly ballot."
  • inexplicable humor: liberals in Colorado wanted to expel the successful, but outspokenly Christian, Tim Tebow, but he ended up in a much bigger media market as a result.
  • dreams: some dreams might be God playing a trick for amusement purposes on you.
