Contest With God

A group of scientists were sitting around discussing which one of them
was going to go to God and tell Him that they didn't need Him anymore.
Finally, one of the scientists volunteered and went to go tell God He
was no longer needed.

The scientist says to God, "God, a bunch of us have been thinking and
I've come to tell you that we really don't need You anymore. I mean,
we've been coming up with great theories and ideas, we've cloned
sheep, and we're on the verge of cloning humans. So as You can see, we
really don't need You."

God nods understandingly and says, "I see. Well, no hard feelings. But
before you go, let's have a contest."

The scientist says, "Sure, I'm all for it. What kind of contest?"

"A man-making contest."

"Sure! No problem," the scientist says. He bends down, picks up a
handful of dirt and says, "Okay, I'm ready!"

And God says: "No, no. You go get your own dirt."
