DESIGN   5'2m0f Some last minute design changes for creation

GABE --- Lord?.... Jesus?..... Before you start the creation I
have some design changes..... Lord? Where are you?

JESUS --  (from afar) Let there be light.

GABE --- Oh, no he's already started. Jesus....

JESUS -- Yes, Gabriel.

GABE --- Lord, I hope I'm not too late.

JESUS -- I call this DAY. How do you like it?

GABE --- It's kind of bright. Listen, Lord, I have some
design....

JESUS -- And I call... this.... night. Nifty huh?

GABE --- Now we can't see the blueprints here. 

JESUS -- Let there be light again. There. Is that better for
you, Gabriel?

GABE --- Better. Yes. Lord, we really have to talk. 

JESUS -- I like day best, don't you?

GABE --- Yes, day is nice. But....

JESUS -- Let there be an expanse between the waters to 
separate water from the clouds. I'm going to call it SKY. 
How do you like it?

GABE --- Blue. Very Nice. But listen before you go much further,
you really should look at my analysis....

JESUS -- Let the water under the sky be gathered in one place
and let dry ground appear. Look, there's the land and
there's the seas.

GABE --- Yes, land and sea, very nice, but what I wanted to
talk to you about....

JESUS -- It is good. I like it. Maybe a little vegetation...
And maybe a few million stars in the sky.

GABE --- Stars, what stars?

JESUS -- Oh, you can only see them at night. Here.

GABE --- Oh, please don't turn the light out ag.... yes, now I
see them. Now, about my analysis...

JESUS -- Now a big sun and a little moon, and the four
seasons....

GABE --- Yes, well, this is all very nice but....

JESUS -- Now a few billion creatures for the sea and few
million more on the dry la.....

GABE --- Creatures! Wait, Lord! It was the creatures that I
wanted to talk to you about.

JESUS -- Alright, Gabriel, let's hear your analysis, but make it
snappy, I'm on a tight schedule here.

GABE --- Well, first of all, it's about your list of creatures.

JESUS -- Yes.

GABE --- Well, you've included fleas and ticks.

JESUS -- Yeah, great, isn't it?

GABE --- Yes, but none of the other creatures are going to like
them. What good are they?

JESUS -- It's a joke.

GABE --- A joke.

JESUS -- Yeah, wait till you see what a dog does to get rid of
them. And now the creatures for the dry la....

GABE --- Wait! Lord! That's not all!

JESUS -- What is it now, Gabriel?

GABE --- It's about the last two creature on your list, the
HUMAN BEINGS.

JESUS -- Yeah, I'm making them in my own likeness. So?

GABE --- So, the specification says that you're going to
give them a free will. Do you know what that means?

JESUS -- Yes. It means that when I tell them not to eat the
fruit, they'll go ahead and eat it anyway.

GABE --- You know that they'll disobey and you want to give
them free will anyway?!

JESUS -- Sure. Why not?

GABE --- Well, if I knew my creations would disobey me, I'd
die. I'd just die!

JESUS -- I will.
