Sunday Faith Post...a little humor today; we need it

A favorite 'story' of mine:

 Subject: God versus scientist
God is sitting in heaven when a scientist prays to Him, "God, 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 the likeness of you and breathe life into it, thus creating man.

"God answered; "Well, that's Me."

So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil.

"No, no, no.......... interrupted God;
 "Get your own dirt" !!!!
 Z:   Here's another that's not of 'faith' at all, but it always makes me laugh:

Two blondes (sorry, blonde commenter friends) are sitting on the end of a pier in Michigan one lovely hot evening dangling their feet in the water under the glow of the moon......
One says to the other "What's closer.....Florida or the moon?"
The other looks at her as if she's stupid and says "duhhh...can you SEE Florida?"

:-)  man, I laughed again.  Maybe I'm simple minded?   I hope you enjoyed it.

God likes it when you laugh.  I have it on great authority :-)

"But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful"  Psalms 68:3

Z - You are right. We need to have a sense of humor. And I also believe that God has a sense of humor. I have it on good authority.

Have a great Sunday - Z.

Good morning, Z,

Thanks so much for this post.

Both "parables" are brilliant -- especially the first, which, of course, is the Perfect Answer to most of questions and objections posed by atheists.

The second is almost as good, because it illustrates beautifully how foolish it is to draw conclusions about the true nature of reality based solely on our own (always limited) perceptions.

Needless to say, both stories are also very funny.

It's wonderful when we can learn profound truths in ways that happen to be very amusing.

Thanks again.

Yes G-D did have a sense of humor...he gave us Mohammed who gave us Islam.

Right Truth said...

That's a good one about God, the scientist and dirt. As hubby and I travel around in our daily routines, we are always amazed at the fantastic things on this great earth. So many say "boom, that just happened". No, it didn't JUST HAPPEN.

Have a great Sunday.

Right Truth

Imp - Only I don't think that Islam is very funny - if you know what I mean. I think it is scary.

Kid said...

I've always loved that Get your own dirt line.

So, what caused the Big Bang anyway.

Z said...

Sue....Imp's being sarcastic...God had a ROTTEN sense of humor by giving us jihadists, that's for sure :-) There's nothing funny about islam to me, either, Sue!
I hope you've had a good day.

FT...I agree! Glad you enjoyed them both.

Kid ... I always wonder why God couldn't have caused the Big Bang!!?

Deb..I can't imagine anything as grand as this earth "just happening".........

Kid said...

Z, exactly.

Z said...

Kid, I remember the first time I heard the punch line "Get your own dirt" really resonated. Love it.

Did you like the blonde joke as much as I do?

Kid said...

I love blond jokes. Here's one.

A blond gets stopped for speeding by a blond female officer. The officer approaches and asks he woman for her drivers license.

The woman starts rummaging in her purse ans asks the officer What does it look like again?

The officer says It's square and it has your picture on it.

So the woman takes out her compact opens it up, says, yep and hands it to the officer.

The officer looks at it and says, Gee I didn't realize you were a police officer, you can go.

I just printed out the God joke for my wife.....she didn't get it...pffffffff.

Whad am I gonna do?

Impertinent said...


Told that to my wife...she didn't get it...and she's not blonde.

Kid said...

IMP, Should I put some more detail to it ?

Ed Bonderenka said...

But can you tell a God joke in Public Schools?

Z said...

How about the one with the blonde and her cell phone? Her husband calls her while she's going down an escalator at the mall and she says "how'd you know I'm HERE?" :-)

Kid said...

Z, I don't get it... ?

Z said...

The blonde didn't realize the cell phone rings ANYWHERE, not just at home, where she's used to answering the phone.
Maybe I told it wrong?
Is it funny now?

Please let me share the email joke you just sent me, Kid:

" A dyslexic man walks into a bra..."

That is SO FUNNY!!!
