One day a group of scientists got together
and decided that humans had come a long way and no longer needed
God. So they picked one scientist to go and tell God this.
The scientist walked up to God and said, "God,
we've decided that we no longer need You. We're at the point
where we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why
don't You just go on and get lost."
God listened very patiently and kindly to
the man. After the scientist was done talking, God said, "Very
well, how about this? Let's say we have a man-making contest."
To which the scientist replied, "Okay,
"But," God added, "we're going
to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam."
The scientist said, "Sure, no problem.",
and bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.
God looked at him and said, "No, no,
no. You go create your own dirt."
