I heard about this little boy who asked his mother to explain how human beings came into existence. A little bit taken aback, the woman told him how God created Adam and Eve, and how they had their children, and how their children had their own children, and so on.
A few days later, the young lad also approached his father, and asked him to explain how human beings came into existence. The man kind of laughed, and said, ‘son, men evolved from monkeys’. After that, he explained how over the ages, monkeys began to look and behave more and more like the present-day human beings, until they became full blown human beings.
At that point, the boy became really confused and needed further clarification. So, he ran to his mum, and the following conversation ensued between them.
Son: Mum, how come you told me human beings were created by God through Adam and Eve, but Dad said human beings evolved from monkeys? Now, I am really very confused! Who do I believe? Mummy, please say something!
Mother: (Smiling) Son, you don’t have to be confused; both of us are right, so, believe us! I only gave you the history of my own side of the family, while your Daddy gave you his!
*Attention please: This joke is only meant to brighten your day; it has nothing to do with religion. Thank you.
