An electric monk for OS X

One of the characters in Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams is an electric monk, which is a robot built for the sole purpose of believing in things so its owner doesn’t have to.

Well, now you can have your very own electric monk in the form of this screen saver that regurgitates proofs of God’s existence on your computer when you’re not there. Simply install it on your Macintosh (OS X 10.6 or later) and leave it running. Then stop worrying about whether or not God exists.

Now you can save your soul and your screen at the same time. And it’s totally free! Here’s a snapshot:

Many thanks to the Godless Geeks for supplying the list of proofs. All 666 of them.

Edit: It seems that some browsers are flagging .dmg (disk image) files as “potentially harmful”. If you’re concerned, you can download the files individually via the buttons shown below. Just make sure the “666-proofs.qtz” file ends up in your screen saver directory.
