A medical doctor, an engineer, and a politician were discussing their professions. Which profession was the oldest?
The medical officer reminded the others that the Book of Genesis clearly states that the first woman was created from the rib of a man. This was a medical function, so one must agree that his profession was the oldest.
Whereupon the engineer argued that earlier in the Book of Genesis there was a reference to the fact that God created order and calm out of chaos and mayhem. ‘That would take an engineer!’
‘Oh no,’ cried the politician, ‘we go back further. Who do you think created the chaos?’
