(Scene: Cave somewhere in the Sinai. Moses sits at a makeshift desk, busy writing. God paces behind him.)

God: I'm worried that someone is going to take the Adam and Eve allegory as literal and create all kinds of misunderstandings.

Moses: C'mon, how naive do you think we humans are?

God: Hey, look at your brother, Aaron. Didn't he just lose his retirement investing in that Baal Golden Calf company?

Moses (angrily): I told that idiot polytheism was a bubble. He never list...(calming down). Okay, but you've already provided a fossil record, carbon-14 dating, and a pretty clear pattern of DNA homologies.

God: I know, I know, but some of that stuff evolving seems almost irreducibly complex.

Moses: Tell you what, I'll add some stuff about magic fruit and a talking serpent, that should prevent any literal interpretation.

God: Well let's not get ridiculous...

Moses: You're the one who's worried.

God: Alright, do what you think best. (Beeper goes off). Gotta go. Those damn bacteria are complaining again about their flagella. Geez, what do they expect, intelligent design?
