A surgeon, an architect, and a politician were considering the question of which of their professions was the oldest profession in history.
“I think my line of work ought to win this one hands down”, the surgeon said. “After all, Eve was created from Adam’s rib and that sure sounds like surgery to me”.
“That may be so”, the architect said, “but before Adam, order was created out of chaos. That was a massive architectural accomplishment, so mine ought to be an even older profession”.
“You could both be right”, the politician said. “But consider this. Before that, someone had to create the chaos”.
