"I want a Corvette!"
"I thought you would."
"Ooh! I want a Pontiac too!"
"OK, we'll have the usual two-car garage."

"Compare the six days of the Book of Genesis
to the four billion years of geological science.
On this scale one day equals about six hundred sixty-six million years.

All day Monday until Tuesday noon,
creation was busy getting the earth going.
Life began on Tuesday noon
and the beautiful organic wholeness of it
developed over the next four days.

At 4:00 PM Saturday, the big reptiles came.
Five hours later when the redwoods appeared
there was no more big reptiles.

At three minutes before midnight, man appeared.
One-Fourth of a second before midnight, Christ revolted.
At one-fortieths of a second before midnight the industrial revolution began.

We are surrounded by people who think that
what we have been doing for one-fortieths of a second
can go on indefinitely.

They are considered normal,
but they are stark raving mad."

[Inaudible Newscast]

    General CommentThe opening 4 lines are from General Moters' 1956 short promotional film "Design for Dreaming." The second is an old recording from David Brower. You can find both on the Internet Archives.
