One fine sunny day, God was sitting in Heaven when a scientist went up to him and said, “Lord, we don’t need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing. In other words, we are now able to do what you did in the beginning”.
“Oh, is that so? Tell me about it”, God replied.
“Well”, the scientist said, “we have discovered that we can take dirt and form it into the likeness of you and breathe life into it, thus creating man”.
“Well, that’s interesting”, God said, “Show Me”.
So the scientist bent down to the earth and started to mold the soil.
“Oh no, no, no…” interrupted God, “Get your own dirt”.
