7. And God saw the predators were getting out of control. And God mulled it over for a while, and said ‘Let there be humans to hunt the predators’ And it was so. but it was not so good, for the humans were an even a nastier bunch than the predators. And the humans sometimes killed for pleasure instead of just for food. And God thought maybe I should make them think before they did things, instead of acting like a load of football hooligans.
8. And God made the humans think, and he gave them team spirit and he gave them altruism, but he lost concentration and gave them management consultants, and bankers, and bureaucrats who stifled initiative. And it was a mess. And it was getting worse. And Lucifer was happy.
9. And God had another think, and God said ‘Let the people have leaders so that they can set an example to the idiots that are squabbling’ And it was so, but some of the leaders had personality problems and were very nasty indeed. And they leaders started picking on minority groups to gain power. And Lucifer was very happy.
10. And God said ‘I have had enough of this, let there be philosophers to teach reason and let there be scientists to teach logic’. And it was so, but it was very confusing, for the philosophers started teaching that there was no God and the Scientist tended to back them up. And Lucifer was wetting himself.
11. And God said ‘I need to discredit this lot’, so he made the scientists think of Relativity and the Big Bang theory, which was a load of rubbish and nobody understood it. And Lucifer did not understand it either, but thought it was worth a go, so he gave the people a lot of equipment like radio telescopes and computers and micro chips that nobody understood. And it was utter chaos. And Lucifer was content.
12. And finally God said ‘Enough, enough already’ and God made the scientists invent television, and the programs were rubbish, but the people did not mind and they say around watching the rubbish and eating fast food. And God was a bit relieved that the people had stopped fighting, and Lucifer was happy as the people were getting obese and dying off . And it was a compromise.
