Ricky’s take on creation, from his Animals show:
I used to think we evolved from apes; Darwin’s theory of evolution through natural selection seemed pretty watertight. But in doing research for this show, I came across a theory that deviates from Darwin’s. I just found it in a dusty old book in a library – it’s called The Bible. And Darwin was wrong; we didn’t evolve – God made us. So I just want to explain to you exactly how that happened.
“First Book of Moses, commonly called Genesis.” Start at the beginning. Some of the things you’ll hear do sound a little bit far fetched, I admit that. I thought it was a bit, but then I found out that the other name for The Bible is The Gospel, so it is all true. Luckily, the clue is in the title.
“Chapter one. In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth.” Doesn’t go into detail. He doesn’t need to explain to you. You probably wouldn’t understand it. He’s got a massive brain, yours is little. You’d probably go “What?” and He goes “Don’t worry, just trust me – I did.” Keeps his cards very close to his chest, God.
“And the Earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep. And God said let there be light, and their was light.” Isn’t that brilliant? He made light up. There was nothing before. It’s not like he saw some on holiday, and went “Oh that’d be great back on Earth” – he made it up! It’s not like there was twilight and he went “Let’s have that a little bit brighter”. He just went “Let there be light” and at the speed of light… he didn’t go “Let there be light, come on – I’m busy. I’ve got a lot to do. I’ve only got seven days!”
He’s amazing. So he did the light, invented it. Which means, he created the heaven and the earth, IN THE DARK! Fuckin’ hell – how good is that?!
