Humans reached a point where they were so technologically advanced that they could now make a living, breathing person. A summit of scientists believed that because they now had the power to create life, God was no longer needed. So they all decided that someone should go and tell God this.
One man volunteered to go. He climbed a mountain and called upon God.
"God! We humans now have the ability to bring people back from the dead. We can create our own life, and we don't need you any more, so you can leave us alone."
God listened to the scientist and nodded.
"Okay, I'll tell you what, if you can really create life, let's have a competition. If you can create a better person than me, I'll go, but we'll have to do it the way I did it in the old days."
So the scientist agreed and began to collect some dirt to make his person.
God simply watched him and finally asked him what he was doing.
"I'm using the dirt to make a person."
God smiled, looked at the scientist and replied, "Go and make your own dirt."
