The following is a very shortened version of the Judeo/Christian creation myth and is not presented as a claim for the only version for the creation of the universe, or even the correct version. It is merely an observation I made in my youth.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
He/She/It also created all the creatures that walked upon the land and swam in the seas.
God looked at that which He/She/It had created and said it was good.
God then decided something was missing and created man and woman.
However, soon after coming into being man/humanity rapidly started going down hill.

I canít help thinking about the billions and billions of stars in the universe.
And considering the number of new stars that are still being formed, or created if you prefer.
I can only assume that if there is a God He/She/It must believe in that old adage.

Yeah, as I recall the assistant pastor conducting my confirmation class didnít find it amusing either.
