A Question of Faith

Top Ten Reasons Eve Was Created

10. God was worried that Adam would frequently become lost in the garden because he would not ask for directions.
9. God knew that one day Adam would require someone to locate and hand him the remote.
8. God knew Adam would never go out and buy himself a new fig leaf when his wore out and would therefore need Eve to buy one for him.
7. God knew Adam would never be able to make a doctor's, dentist, or haircut appointment for himself.
6. God knew Adam would never remember which night to put the garbage on the curb.
5. God knew if the world was to be populated, men would never be able to handle the pain and discomfort of childbearing.
4. As the Keeper of the Garden, Adam would never remember where he left his tools.
3. Apparently, Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden.
2. As the holy books say, it is not good for man to be alone!
And the #1 reason why God created Eve...
1. When God finished the creation of Adam, He stepped back, scratched his head, and said, "I can do better than that!"

Two young brothers, Shujon and Tipu, were excessively mischievous. The two were always getting in trouble and their parents could be sure that if any mischief occurred in town, their two sons were probably involved in some way. The parents were at their wit's end as to what to do about their sons' behaviour. The mother then heard that clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked her husband if he thought they should send the boys to speak with him.
The husband said, "We might as well. We need to do something before I really lose my temper!"
The clergyman agreed to speak to the children but he asked to see them individually. The 8-year-old went to meet him first. The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?"
The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone. "Where is God?"
Again the boy made no attempt to answer, so the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face. "Where is God?"
Frightened, the boy ran directly home, slamming his door and hiding in his closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and asked, "What happened?"
The younger brother replied, "We are in big trouble this time. God is missing and they think we did it!"

A young lady came home from a date rather sad. She told her mother, "He proposed to me an hour ago."
"Then why are you so sad?" her mother asked.
"Because he also told me he was an atheist. Mom, he doesn't even believe there's a hell!"
Her mother replied, "Marry him anyway. Between the two of us, we'll show him how wrong he is."

Mortal: What is a million years like to you?
God: Like one second.
Mortal: What is a million dollars like to you?
God: Like one penny.
Mortal: Can I have a penny?
God: Just a second.
