God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist says to Him, “Lord, we don’t need you anymore because 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 then breathe life into it, thus creating man.”
“Well, that’s interesting. Show Me,” says the Lord.
So the scientist bends down to the earth, scoops up some dirt, and begins to mold the soil.
‘Oh no, no, no…’ interrupts God,
“You have to get your own dirt!”
