|10 Which is hard to do,
11 aSince they've got an awful lot invested in this Judeo-Christian thing.
CHAPTER 91 But the good news is that Mankind can believe practically anything,
2 Including Evolution,
3 bAnd it's a lot harder to not believe in science than to not believe in a personal Judeo-Christian God,
4 cWho made everything in seven days,
5 dCompletely from scratch,
6 Just like it says in the Bible,
7 eWhich happens to have a few little contradictions in it,
8 In case you hadn't noticed.
CHAPTER 101 fAnd so they'll stop believing in the literal truth of the Bible,
2 And they'll start studying the history of the earth gscientifically,
3 hMeaning with picks and shovels and microscopes and chemistry and theories and experiments and so forth,
4 And they'll discover all kinds of amazing, fascinating things.
5 Like they'll discover that the earth is millions and millions and millions of years old,
6 And wasn't much like iEden at the jbeginning,
7 But hotter and wetter,
8 And without any life to speak of,
9 kUnless you count amino acids,
10 lWhich got the ball rolling lifewise,
11 mBack when everything was still pretty much nothing but a big ball of chemicals.
||CHAPTER 111 And although they'll continue to think of the nbiblical creation as a pretty nice story,
2 oThey'll come to believe that the amino acids became simple one-celled life-forms,
3 pWhich grew and spread and got more complicated,
4 qThe way things always do,
5 rUntil there were like plants and brainless animals living in the water,
6 sWhich kept on getting more and more complicated,
7 Thanks to a principle called Survival of the Fittest,
8 Until there were water creatures,
9 Something like fish,
10 Who came out of the water onto the dry land,
11 tWhere they went on evolving,
12 Because there weren't any men yet.
CHAPTER 121 But before there could be men, there would have to be dinosaurs,
2 Just to prove what an accident Evolution really is,
3 Because who in his right mind would decide to fill up a nice planet with a bunch of giant murderous reptiles,
4 With brains this big,
5 Who didn't do anything but lumber around eating plants and each other,
6 For a couple of eons,
7 When there could have been men instead?
