History of the World (part 1?)

A Story by Woody
"

How God created the universe.

"

At the very beginning, there was nothing. And I mean nothing. No light, no sound, not even a single speck of dust. Zilch.


Then, came God. To this day, nobody knows how God came to be, not Einstein, not Hawkins, not even Donald Trump. All we know is that He came with a bang. Anyway, God looked around and scratched his head. The place looked empty so he decided to furnish it. 


He made billions of galaxies which he filled with planets. At first, things were somewhat messy, chaotic. After all, it was only a start. In fact, there were zillions and trillions of billions of planets that kept bumping into each other. Some even broke apart. But God almighty is, well, almighty, right? So within only 6 days, he got the hang of it and accomplished a feat nobody has ever come close to achieving. He worked out the gravity business and the value of “e”. He created planets of various shapes and colours. There was a red planet, another one with rings all around it. God outdid Himself with that one. There was a blue one with plenty of water on its surface. God Almighty had great fun. His only regret was that there was no one around to admire his handiwork and congratulate him. 


God stepped back and contemplated his work. Something was missing but he couldn’t put his holy finger on it.And then it hit him! It was too dark. God smiled and said: “Let there be light!” Huge balls of fire sprang to life and illuminated the wide expense. “Gosh, I’m good!” boomed God in his gravelly voice that was strangely reminiscent of that of Morgan Freeman.

God sat and pondered his next move. The blue planet was his favourite so he thought of infusing some life in it. First he made a tiny little cell, then another, then another and watched them merge together to make bigger cells. They kept expanding and God thought “Well, blimey! Look what I’ve just made! I’ve just created life!”

 

One Wednesday morning, as God was watching his little cells, marveling at their creation and feeling proud, no doubt, wouldn’t you be? He had an epiphany. “What if I created bigger creatures?” He mused. And He set about creating enormous beings. And that’s how dinosaurs came to be. The good Lord created diplodocuses, tyrannosaurus rex, stegosaurus...Of course at the time, they didn’t have those names. Almighty God referred to them simply as “the big thingies”. It’s only later, much much later that Man, God’s worst creation to date, gave them those fancy names. 

For millions of years (yes, time means nothing to God. He’s Almighty, silly), the Big Thingies roamed the earth, wreaking havoc on God’s favourite blue planet. When God noticed the devastation and the huge amount of dung that disfigured Earth, he thought enough was enough. With a flick of his holy wrist, he summoned a deluge of meteorites to come down and wipe out all the critters.             

Earth remained lifeless, except for the luxurious fauna, until the good Lord, one day, had another epiphany. He smiled, scratched his luxurious white beard and thought “I think I’ll create something in my image”. God chuckled to himself and snapped his holy fingers. At first, He was not happy with what he's done but for a few hundreds years, he kept at it until finally He was satisfied with the result. Man was created. He was exactly the same as you and me, except much uglier. For one, he had no testicles (what’s the use?), just a tiny penis to relieve himself. He also had prominent eyebrows and was covered in hair. yuck!                                                                   

God sat back on his golden throne and thought his masterpiece deserved a better place to live so he put him in his secret garden, Eden, and called him Dick then thought of a better name and called him Adam. “Yes, you look more like an Adam than a silly Dick,” God said, satisfied.

Adam lived in heaven for 230 years (death was not yet invented) happy as can be when one Christmas Eve, God had the dubious idea of creating a better half for Adam. Well, Adam has never been the same again, I can tell you, but that’s another story which I might tell you if I can get a thousand likes.

Well Woody, we're waiting. I saw one person gave you hundreds of likes so we must well over 1,000 by now. Maybe by then we'll have Hawking or Dawkins rather than Hawkins ...? As always, a very very readable journey. I want to hear the outcome of the Adam 'better half' story. Can't imagine how you'll end it ... maybe 'they all lived happily ever after ...'

Cheers

i have missed you Woody ... glad i caught this one .. I believe among all things God's sense of humor reigns way up there on His "strengths" list ..good thing for you eh!? ;))) i can see this being read to a class of children instead of the thees and thous rendition .. i'm sure it would be a hit and inspire much twittering chatter as children are want to express ...enjoyed reading sir!

I wonder what Gods 3rd epiphany will be, I shudder to think ?

Kudos Woody, nice to see a bit of humour for a change when it comes to 'The Almighty ' some folk are just too serious and insular on the topic, a point of view on which even the good Lord himself would duly concur!

Jeez, a whole new take on evolution and the creation story. Really? No testicles, what did men scratch then? Super funny, I am happy that he changed his name from Dick.

This is my first thing I've read of yours, so I wouldn't be able to recognize the rust. Thoroughly enjoyed it man. I can't believe it took me this long to find a place to read and share my own writings. I'll be looking forward to more.

thanks loads Carmel. so glad you enjoyed this one. and welcome to the site.
Okay Woodzie, you've outdone yourself. I love this wonderfully humorous take on the creation. Did you know evening and the first three days past, or was it four, I can't remember, before God created the sun and the moon? Isn't that strange? And those dinosaurs, always getting in the way, they deserved to die, especially the Trumpasaurus and Hilaryasaurus.

you're right about that. you wanna baffle people, talk weird.
You have made my day with this, Woody. With your interpretation and my version of "In the Beginning" it seems that Genesis will never be the same again. Can I give you the other 9,999 likes for the sequel?

No dust? Man, I wish I had been around then! :) My closet has never stepped out of the messy and chaotic phase! Your descriptions had me giggling throughout....no testicles...a tiny penis? OMG, Woody, you rock! I wish death had never been invented! A thousand likes? Hell, you should get TWO thousand for each of your stories. Unfortunately, I have so little time to read lately. Glad I took the time with this one. Well worth it. Lydi**
