This little bit of common sense and humour came via Fr. Tim Moyle's blog, Where the Rubber Hits the Road, and he had received it from another fine priest, Fr. Mike Smith, a former teacher at St. Peter's Seminary, now a parish priest in Quebec. Fr. Mike is an albino and also has weak eyesight, but to the best of my knowledge it never slowed him down as a priest, teacher, and now as a pastor.
God and the Scientist
God is sitting in heaven when a scientist says to him,"Lord, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing. In other words, we can now do what you did in the beginning."
"Oh, is that so? Tell me," replies God.
"Well," says the scientist, "we can take dirt and form it into your likeness and breathe life into it, thus creating man."
"Well, that's interesting. Show me."
So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil.
"Oh no, no, no," interrupts God. "Get your own dirt."
