What is up with Mel Gibson's THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST? I know, I know, that's the question of the hour, so let's focus on this: the IMDB entry lists "God" in the writing credits, under the category "novel".

What is the logic of this? It would appear that it glorifies God by recognizing that the Bible is His Words, but if that's so, why is he listed as a novelist? Shouldn't he be "chronicler"? "Overlord"? "Most High"? Don't novelists only write works of fiction?

It's a bizarre, indulgent symbol and I don't think it's even a coherent symbol.
