God’s Program

God saved their computer program then recompiled it with some new updates. The opening sequence, light and dark, went as planned. Then came oceans, land, plants, and animals. The computer at last compiled the while loop they’d been working on for quite some time. Mankind popped up, but once again the program’s asinine “people simulations” betrayed God.

They’d spent so long on this program and it never worked. Maybe they would patch it later.

This was written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #178, “Asinine“. At first I just thought of computer programming, but then I wrapped it together with a religious context and it worked out this way.

    I saw this word prompt and, every time, it brings the leering, toadlike face of my seventh grade history teacher to mind. Or, maybe it was math. Me, in my sheltered state, kept thinking he was swearing -which, knowing him, was probably intentional.

    Anyway, looks like you need to try restarting your system.

      My husband, who does a lot of programming for his work, says that every programmer worth their salt eventually comes upon a section of code and says “What is this garbage? Who wrote this drivel – f*ckin’ amateurs – oh, that was me. I wrote this.”

      So is there good programming? πŸ˜‰
