god allows the rain to fall on everyone and everything — he’s not particular that way. It’s not a judgment from god if one guy is struck by lightening but another one isn’t. god isn’t looking to flood Australia and at the same time, cause a drought in Africa…it’s just the way things are.
In the Beginning, god created the Earth and set in motion all kinds of things having to do with physics, evolution, science, the birds and the bees, rhythm and ebb and flow. And god said, “This is cool…this works….” So he let her roll into space and watched his new planet do its thing.
He figured he’d got the engineering and mechanics right and that things would simply hum along smoothly for eternity.
Well, even with god, Stuff Happens.
First it was the dinosaurs. He didn’t even see that one coming, it happened so fast. They were here today and gone tomorrow.
“Oh well,” said god, “things’ll just keep evolving.”
And so they did…good and bad, rain and sun, fauna and flora, sun and moon.
god was a little bummed when all those woolly mammoths and sabre-toothed cats perished in the tar pits in Los Angeles, but…”Well, life will go on,” he figured.
And so it did.
god looked on as the bi-peds evolved. He was kinda shocked at first by these guys because they kept disrupting the natural status quo that he’d so carefully put into place.
The bi-peds created weird tools and started killing, not just animals for food, but each other. They constructed huge buildings and engineered flying machines. They poured concrete on top of farmland and asphalt on top of meadows.
Eventually it got to the point that they were even sucking-up the dinosaur fossils out of the bowels of the Earth.
god let the rain, by now rather murky, fall on all of this, but he judged it not.
“That’s the way it goes, I guess,” god said to himself. “That Joni Mithell was right.”
And so, god wasn’t as surprised as he was with the dinosaurs when the bi-peds suddenly disappeared from the planet.
“Here today and gone tomorrow,” he shrugged.
