The reason why I answered your posting at all (besides
seeing your x-post going into 5 ng's) is your mentioning
of 'God'. According to christian tradition (which is
somehow on topic in a Perl group) it is exactly the
case of Jesus (imho), who was (in his context) the
"/Do you really want to look like a dolt in public/"
man par excellance. Socrates also comes into the mind ;-)

AFAIK - both were symptoms of the decline
of their societies at the time ...
