And God Said, Let There Be A Back Rub


For Valentine's Day, the story of creation and God's girlfriend, who feels like she never sees Him. From The New Yorker.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the earth. “Let there be light,” He said, and there was light. And God saw that it was good...On the second day, God separated the oceans from the sky...On the third day, God’s girlfriend came over and said that He’d been acting distant lately. 'I’m sorry,' God said. 'Things have been crazy this week at work.' He smiled at her, but she did not smile back. And God saw that it was not good."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
