Making a Man
God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist says to him, "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? Please tell me... " replies God.
"Well," says the scientist, "we can take dirt and form it into
Your likeness and breathe life into it, thus creating man."
"Well, that's interesting. Show me."
So the scientist bends down on his knees and picks up some
soil and starts to mold it.
"Oh no, no, no," interrupts God, "get your own dirt."
