Science Versus God

Nov 6, 2021

A thousand years from now when scientists have solved all the questions that plague humanity, they are finally ready for the ultimate challenge.

They elect a representative to address God.

“God,” says the scientist in charge. “You are no longer needed. You served a function in your day, but that day is gone. We can do everything that You can do, so goodbye.”

There is a moment of silence. Then a voice booms out of the sky: “Everything?”

“Yes,” answers the scientist, “everything.”

“Can you make a human being from dust?”

“Absolutely.”

“OK,” says God, “let me see you make a human being.”

The scientist reaches down and digs his hands into the earth.

“Oh, no,” says God. “Get your own dust.”

[Adapted, Why Faith Matters, Rabbi David J. Wolpe]
