AND GOD CREATED THE UNIVERSE (Humor):
And God created the universe in the wink of an eye. And the wink was a billion billion years long, and a trillion, trillion years wide. When it was done, everybody wondered what He had done, for it was all new and different, and nobody knew where anything was, and nobody knew what to make of it.
Everybody in those days was the angels, archangels, seraphim and cherubim, and they only knew what they knew, which wasn’t much, but mostly concerned with telling God how great He was, and God was getting to the point where He didn’t know if what they said counted for very much. He knew what it would be before they said it, because that’s just the way they were, and He should know because He made them that way. Which was “Catch 22” because how do you get an unbiased review from palace courtiers and the pep squad?
No brainer, god had to create somebody absolutely ignorant about how he or she got here. It would behoove everybody already present to become invisible to maintain the mystery. This new somebody would receive skills and abilities sufficient to pose ultimate questions, and to invent answers to them. They were to be guided by various natural clues and signposts, wandering know-it-alls, and ambiguous events anonymously reported. The new somebodies would arrive naked in the world, and cobble together reasons and whys from the smorgasbord laid before them, with an occasional stick up the ass to keep them moving. (more…)
