The debate over divine evolution. Scientists say he's the result of eons of natural selection. (Man: At some point 2 molecules of amino acids or whatever collided at just the right angle.) "Various beings- God's ancestors- cross-bred and mutated until the earliest modern diety emerged 50,000 years ago.) (Man: I'm omnipotent and I'll switch to hands if I want to.) Creationists have a different theory. (Woman: God was not descended from elves. He was created by pre-God in his own image.) Science, they say, can't explain God's incredible complexity. (Woman: It's like he was made for us to worship! Besides, evolutionists admit a missing link between ghosts and nymphs.) But then- (Man: Behold: The "missing link"!) (Woman: Blashemy!!) Next: Who made the protogod.
