And on the 8th day of creation, humans took over from God and created capitalism. And capitalism took over from humans and looked down at them and said: “you are mine now”. And humans looked at their wallets, and they were full of money. And they bought everything they could buy, and killed everything in the Garden of Eden, packaged it in plastic and carried it into the supermarket. And on the 8th day of creation, the supermarket ran out of products. The Earth was scorched, and the oceans were full of dead fish. And humans turned to God, but God was nowhere to be found.
