Frankly, I expected better of Jez. That was pure bull.

Actually, I thought her answer was awesome. There's no logical reason to believe in a religion, and Gav just said so. Jez regonized that Gav would not be swayed by any logic that she tried.

So she appealed to his self serving nature. Perfect.

yes but she moved him further into ma'at, not jesus.

plus as an atheist believing in a god doesnt make you happy, knowing/believing in reality and knowledge makes you happy.

Not lying to yourself makes you happy. After spending all night coming up with glib answers to everything Jez said, it's pretty clear Gav really isn't thinking much about the existence--or lack of existence--of God, and is defaulting to atheism because it's the predominant dogma of the intellectuals at Berkeley. Recent events in his life are suggesting to him that he may need to reconsider those beliefs; didn't he just say so himself? But as long as he's being glib and refusing to actually think about these spiritual issues he's going to continue to lie to himself, rather than taking the comparatively difficult step of self-analysis needed to come to a "real" answer.

Now try fitting that into a gag comic. :P

It seems obveous to me she said it becouse she knew it would work.
I think she isn't aware of Ma'at and thinks the only logical conclusion would be Jesus.
(She under estimated Gav in that respect)

There isn't a Christian recruiter alive that understands that sentence.

see in my cult we do not lie at all, and everyone is happy.
as alcohol is free, and the message of the gods of science and wisdom.

if you are not happy i stab you until you either are, or terminally so.
