Tiny Theologians

Intuitive Monkey: "When did God make Adam?"

"Let's see...I think He made Adam on the sixth day in Genesis, after he made the land animals."

Intuitive Monkey: "No....God made animals on the fifth day. He made Adam on the sixth day...all by himself."

"I don't think so. We'll look it up when we get home."

The Rationalist: "Monkey, he did make animals on the sixth day, because humans are animals too!"

Intuitive Monkey: "No they're not! Humans are people!"

The Rationalist: "Yes, but they're animals too!"

Intuitive Monkey, crying: "NO....THEY'RE....NOT!!!!"

The Rationalist: "...are too..."

I am expecting a drawing of 98 stick figures to be tacked to the door at any moment...a la Martin Luther.
