Part 4: Mainline Christian InterpretationMany Mainline Christians believe that we are created in the image of God, but that God’s creation process includes evolution over millions of years, with creation and evolution working hand-in-hand. The six “days” of creation in the Bible are figurative, not literal, referring to long periods of time. Perhaps this implies that humor also has evolved gradually over a long period of time.In this case, one might imagine archaeologists someday discovering extremely crude representations of Calvin and Sabertooth Hobbes strips on the walls of the oldest caves, with no fourth panel because the punch line did not yet exist.Perhaps the frequency of humor also evolved gradually. Maybe the first humans only laughed once every few decades, but a million years later, things were a laugh a minute.ConclusionSo, where am I going with all of this?Funny you should ask.Humor me.This is all that I have created so far.My thoughts are still evolving.Etc.
