    When I was a youngster, my parents had a Ford station wagon. Riding in the back, my brother and I would do the same to the truck drivers, making the arm motion to encourage them to sound their airhorns. Thanks for bringing back that memory.:)

    That's a lot of fun and heartwarming.

    Concerning the "proof of God" thing:
    I hope I've stopped trying to explain that. God seems self-evident to me. Explaining has become fairly pointless. Sort of a "He that hath ears..." kind of thing. Ah well. Again, just my opinion. (as if I need to explain that)

    Unfortunately, ego will probably still get the better of me occasionally, and I'll blurt.

    I'd accept it in the form of mathematics

    Yes, that's a tricky one, God seems to do that a lot:)

    Takes a lot of creativity to get around God's Silent Treatment;)

    Smart God. Leads by example.

    That's exactly what I do with those door to door folks.

    Splendid!

    Yes indeed "strong silent"

    And allegedly also "strong sound" (creating the universe from OM, according Hinduism)

    Maybe better for us He is silent, when He gets "strong sound" we might be running faster than the girl in the OP:D

    YES.

    "He that has ear..."
    "He that has eye..."
    "He that has heart..."
    "..."

    No need to explain + No use to explain IF No ear to hear, No eye to see, No heart to feel.

    Oh dear, hear I go...
    God is never silent.
    We live by "...every word out of the mouth of..."
    We sometimes (actually often) misidentify the author.
    Ok, stopping now.
