Here’s the dirt on creation, I read this somewhere once, and I can’t remember where; nor can I remember who the author is, but it’s worth re-blogging…
A group of scientists, after much research believed they had finally reached the pinnacle for humanity. They decided since man had come such a long way we were no longer in need God. After some deliberation, and not a little trepidation, the scientists picked one from among them to go tell God they didn’t need Him.
The chosen scientist walked up to God and said, “God, we’ve come to a point in humanity, which we scientists have decided we no longer need You. We are to the point we can clone people and animals, and do many miraculous things, so why don’t You go get Yourself lost.”
After the scientist finished talking, God said, “Very well, how about this? Let’s say we have a person-making contest.”
The scientist replied, “OK, great!” He rubs his hands together, thinking to himself this easy. Beginning to gather the necessary scientific equipment to clone a human, but then God calls out to the scientist.
“No,” God says, “we’re going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam.”
The scientist said, “Sure , no problem,” and he bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt, beginning to wonder for the first time just how he was going to carry out this feat.
God looked at the scientist and said, “No, no, no. You don’t understand, Mr. Scientist, you need to also create your own dirt out of nothing, you can’t use My dirt.”
