It is bad enough that “God” is supposed to have created us, and provided us with a digestive system that produces necessary energy for our bodies, but also repulsive waste matter and nauseous odors. Now the scientists tell us that the planet Uranus (Ur – anus ?) literally stinks to high heaven, the stench – resembling rotten eggs – having become the … butt of scatological jokes, accompanied by suggestions that the perfect Godhead has somewhat less than perfect olfactory nerves.
Fortunately He not only has neither such nerves or a nose to house them, but He doesn’t exist. Indeed, the case could be made that the pong of the planet in question reinforces the absurdity of suggesting that God would ever have created such a malodorous stink-bomb. The good news is that Ur-anus is 2.6 billion kms from Earth, where we already have more open cesspools, rotting garbage dumps and flatulent fellow-citizens (to say nothing of cows) than we can stomach.
