    That is not at all why He invented lasers. The use you have in mind is in fact a perversion of the one He truly intended.

    For mounting on sharks? Sure that's another thing that I'm positive god had in mind but the primary purpose was obviously debushification.

    That was not God's purpose at all. It was the Father of Lies (aka the devil) who first thought of putting lasers to that use.

    Somewhat related, little Genevieve cannot pronounce "devil," so she says "weebler" instead. That makes him sound a lot less frightening. Maybe that's why she says it that way.

    Just a simple logical argument basically:

    1. If God is all good, then He didn't invent lasers for a bad purpose.
    2. Debushification is a bad purpose.
    3. God is all good.
    _______________
    4. Therefore, God did not invent lasers for debushification.

    Your logic is sound, but your premises are clearly faulty, god is the source of all, both good and bad. If however I allow your 1st premise your 2nd remains faulty, debushification is an objectively good purpose, just ask my giant hairy feline friend Meguchan about being bushy in a Japanese summer.

    P.S. your 3rd statement is redundant.

    Not sure that it's the only country, but even so you can thank the puritan Douglas MacArthur for it.

    It affirms the antecedent in the if...then clause in the first premise.
