A Real Intelligent Designer

If you’ve ever work in web design, web development, or any service-oriented job you owe it to yourself to check out Clients From Hell. Today I stumbled on this gem at their website:

Client: ”Obviously we need the site to be deeply spiritual. The use of a cross is obvious and although perhaps over-used we would like to go with that… Also perhaps some Saints, figurines… You get the idea?”

Designer: ”Do you have any specific Saint’s in mind?”

Client: ”No, just run with it… after all we all worship the same god right?”

Designer: ”Actually no, I am atheist. Is this a problem?”

Client: ”Oh, erm, you´re one of THEM are you? Hmm that is a problem… people who abandon the word of god are in league with the Devil, and if you designed our site… well, it would make it sinful, a place of deception… No… erm, maybe you would like to discuss your hatred of God? Then perhaps I could convince you of the true path.”

Designer: ”I cannot hate something which does not exist.”

Client: ”I see. No, we need a designer who is…you know, not in league with the devil.”

So anything built by non-believers is “sinful, a place of deception”? If I had to guess, I’d think there have been a least a handful of churches and holy-places built with non-theist hands, or at least by the hands of folks that believe in some other variation of god.

Guess they really are places of deception then…
