Three engineers were huddled together in a bar after a few drinks discussing the nature of God.
All three agreed that God had to be an engineer of some kind, but of which specialty?
The mechanical engineer asserted that God just had to be a mechanical engineer, like himself. “Why, just study the perfect harmony of the human body’s movement and the way that the bones fit together. Just look at how the muscles and ligatures form the perfect pulley system!”
The electrical engineer said, “No way was God a mechanical engineer. God must be an electrical engineer. Just look at the way the central nervous system worked together with impulses passing along and crossing synapses. Without this marvelous electrical feat the bones and muscles would not work!”
Not to be outdone, the chemical engineer pointed out that chemical engineering had to be God’s specialty, “The complex chemical interactions within intracellular systems that sustain life make it possible for the body’s cells to even do their jobs in the first place!”
They argue awhile, and finally decide to present their respective cases to a third party, who will cast the deciding vote. They nominate the friendly bartender.
After listening to their arguments, the bartender sits awhile in thought.
Finally he decides, “You are all wrong. God has to be a civil engineer. Who else would put a sewer pipeline right through the middle of a recreational area?”Click here for reuse options!
