Fascinating and Funny Biology Facts

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months, and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat up one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it.)

When scientists have no more need for God

One day a group of scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way and no longer needed God.  So they picked one scientist to go and tell Him that they were done with Him.  The scientist walked up to God and said, “God, we’ve decided that we no longer need You.  We’re to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why don’t have any need for You any more”

God listened very patiently and kindly.  After the scientist was done talking, God said, “Very well, how about this?  Let’s say we have a man-making contest.”

To which the scientist replied, “Okay! Great.”

But God added, “Now we’re going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam.”

The scientist said, “Sure, no problem!” and bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.

God looked at him and said, “Oh, No, no, no. You go get your own dirt!”
