An atheist's answer to the spam

This stuff lands daily, with subject lines:

Want to be a God?! Of course you do.
Getting no satisfaction with the size of your deity?
Bigger heaven! Longer eternity!
Not touching the sides of hell?
Scare the devil out of your partner with your really big idol!
Unveil a longer scripture, satisfy longer.

Question: "are you satisfied with the size of my deity, with the duration of my acts of piety, with the length of eternity?"

Answer: (A knowing smile, a wink, a nod) "I have nothing. I have the empty hand of the Buddha, applauding me. I have something without length or any dimension, without holes, without question."
