    What I am reminded of is Baelzebub and Satan speaking in Book II of Paradise Lost (I think that's where it is; it's not in Bk I, and I'm not going to reread the poem for this insult). Baelzebub tells Lucifer that God is supreme because God created them all.

    Lucifer answers, basically, "I don't remember being created, do you? I have no evidence that God was there before me." The self-made business men look at their bank statements and can see no evidence of anyone else there.

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.
