Into the Lighter Side #4
“Daddy, where did the human race come from, anyway?” the little girl asked.
“Well, Sweetie, long time ago humans grew from monkeys. From apes. It’s called evolution.”
“Ew,” said he girl as she ran off to ask her mom the same question.
Mom’s eyes brightened as she replied, “Oh, Honey, a long time ago God made a perfect paradise world called Eden and put perfect people in it. That’s where we came from.”
“From paradise?” the girl asked with a confused look. “Daddy says we came from monkeys.”
“Well…” Mom thought for a moment. “I’m talking about my side of the family; Daddy’s talking about his side of the family.”
A few years later Dad met an untimely death and was surprised to wake up in a world called Eden where everyone looked like young adults on Earth but were a heck of a lot friendlier.
An angel approached, emitting rainbow colors, and told the newcomer they should have a little chat and do a little soul-searching before he got settled in to paradise.
“Well, I was a scientist, and frankly, this is all kind of hard to accept,” the fellow conceded, gesturing at the beautiful trees and buildings all around him. “Earth wasn’t like this. There were lots of problems, as I’m sure you’re aware, and I was actually helping to solve them. I just invented a device that could capture the energy from lightning and tornados and other huge storms. We could channel it into a large battery array attached to the power grid of a major city to solve the world’s energy problems. The initial test looked really promising….”
“When was that?” the angel asked.
“About five minutes ago.”
