I took three weeks to answer this question a year and a half ago…I kinda liked the answer, so I’m posting it again…

Jimmy from NY asks:
All this talk about creation and evolution confuses me, just how did we get here?

Bob writes back:
Well that’s a tricky one it is. I don’t know the whys to that question but I did some research and I think I know the how.

It all started when a chap named Bobby Franks who decided to take the day home from work.

You see, he had a nasty bit of a cold and just didn’t feel up to working. He watched the morning news and just got fed up. The terrorists are gonna attack, danger here, danger there, the war overseas, it was too much to take in with a head cold.

Then there was the bit about the asteroid. Apparently the space administration had predicted that an asteroid was headin’ our way. Not a direct hit mind you, but it was coming close enough to supposedly cause tidal waves, quakes, and all sorts of damage.

“Just another anomaly that they’re using to boost insurance sales.” Bobby figured and didn’t pay it any mind.

He shut off the T.V. and went out to fetch the morning paper, “…at least I can enjoy the funnies,” he thought to himself as he stepped outside. Feeling a build-up in his nose he hocked a big fat slab of snot on the sidewalk, wiped the sweat off his forehead and picked up the paper and looked up toward the sun.

It was unusually hot but instead of the sun he saw something else.

The last thing he saw was a big flash of light.

And that was that.

I hope this answers your question, Jimmy.

To Summarize, Bobby Franks took the day off work, sneezed while getting the paper and looked up.  That was the last thing he did.  

And that’s how life began on Earth.

I explain a bit more:

Turns out a meteor was supposed to swing by the planet causing tide risings, earthquakes, weather changes, ect. But the science guys were a little off.

It smacked right into the planet and vaporized it.  Everything instantly died.  Plants, people, fish, even Bobby Franks…everything.

Well, almost everything.

One thing did survive.
