God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist calls to Him, “Hey Lord, we don’t need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing. In other words, we can now do what you did in ‘The Beginning’.”
“Oh, is that so? And just how would you do that?” replies God.
“Well, ” says the scientist, “we can take dirt and form it into the
likeness of You and breathe life into it, thus creating man.”
“Well, that’s interesting. Show Me.”
So the scientist bends down to get a mound of earth and starts to mold the soil.
“Ho, no, no, no…” interrupts God, “Get your own dirt.” 😀
