The Mystery of Life revealed - more or less. . .

This is a conversation between my son Brady and his friend Degan - not quite sure if that's the way Degan's name is normally spelled , but for our purposes , it will do.

Brady asked "You don't believe in God?"

"No , I think God's fake." Degan informed him.

"Well , where do you think we come from then?"

"We came from mice" opined young Degan.

(Brady's mother starts to grin)

"So you think people came from MICE?' Brady asks , somewhat startled. It was obviously a theory he hadn't considered before.

"No , the mice had gorilla's and then they had humans" , Degan informs him.

(Brady's mom lights a mental candle for all the mice that ended so abruptly , sacrificing selflessly for the Cause)

"Well where did the mice come from then?" Brady asks.

"No one knows. . ." says Degan , very mysteriously.

And then they went to play basketball.
