The Story of the World

In the beginning, there was primordial ooze. And the ooze turned into life. And the life developed, and was fruitful and multiplied.

The world changed. Great dinosaurs ruled the Earth, along with a plethora of diverse species of reptiles and other creatures.

Until a great meteor impacted the surface of the earth, throwing shards of molten rock through the atmosphere, blanketing the Earth with hot ash. And almost all of the creatures on the Earth died, and most of the species.

But life still survived on the Earth, and in time it again developed, and was fruitful and multiplied.

The world changed. Great birds and huge, hairy beasts ruled the Earth, each in turn, and roamed its surface, along with diverse species of mammals and other creatures.

Until a great volcano erupted, spewing out many mountains of hot lava from the heart of the Earth. And the climate of the Earth changed, bringing on a great Ice Age, with glaciers miles deep, which wiped the great beasts off the face of the Earth. And almost all of the creatures on the Earth died, and most of the species.

But life still survived on the Earth, and in time it again developed, and was fruitful and multiplied.

The world changed. Great colonies of apes grew, and eventually man ruled the Earth, and prospered greatly, and thanked the Earth for giving him life and for enabling him to prosper.

And man said, “Let us preserve this great Earth that we have inherited, and all its species as they now live, lest life change and we lose all that we have. For the Earth has already survived a great meteor strike and a great volcano eruption and a great ice age: surely, its number must be coming up soon.”

And evolution stopped.
