I have had enough of people mocking Creation and have seen these arguments rally back and forth. I can end those arguments and I am going to end them now.
This parable is not my own but has stuck in my memory because of how true and powerful it is. I think it goes something like this:
There was once a scientists who thought he was so clever. He thought he was so clever that he could create life from dust!! He boasted to all his friends and to Christians that he could play ‘God’.
One day he shouted up to God: “Hey God, we don’t need you any more, we can create life all on our own, plus we can engineer it to make people perfect.”
God was amused, and decided that he would like to see the scientist perform his deeds, so he said to the scientist “Okay Mr Hawkins, lets see what you can do.”
Mr Hawkins gathered up a handful of dust from the ground and placed it into a test tube. He was about to add some chemicals into the tube when God gave him a tap on his shoulder.
“Hang on a moment, friend, get you own dust.”
