Enough mit der talk about god already! I say: "god? schmod!"
The word 'god' adds nothing to understanding anything; it just adds a layer of complexity.
Some people say that this complex cosmos could not 'just happen' without a creator... and then they propose AN EVEN MORE COMPLEX CREATOR (god) who 'just happened'!
For the sake of human advancement... jettison this primitive, barbaric notion before our voyage to the stars. We have enough carry-on baggage, like psychological 'creatures of the Id' (reference to Forbidden Planet movie). Why contaminate other worlds with our reptile thinking? Perhaps it's good that humanity is quaranteened to this solar system by the speed of light. It gives us time to 'grow up'.

I assume "mit" and "der" are intentional mispellings.

quarantined is spelled incorrectly. I'm also not sure if "Perhaps it's good that humanity is quaranteened to this solar system by the speed of light." is philosophical or drug induced in nature.

Odd...

It's certainly not a word and is not coming up as one in various dictionaries and other program's dictionaries.

Very curious....

I will translate it for you:
Enough mit der talk about god already
=Enough with the talk about god already

Who said anything about God? You're the only one who's brought him up.
