Birthing A Religion

I'm a slut for science
spreadeagled on the slab.
Processes and patents.
A Lady of the Lab.

When the serpent split the Adam,
it was the Eve of pain and lack.
Apple promises us the garden.
"Child, there's an app for that."

For the Science prompt at dVerse

"Come up to the lab, and see what's on the slab--" I can totally see you standing with your arms crossed, skewering young nerds with your gimlet stare like the chick in Weird Science.

Ha ha! Loved this fractured fairy tale of the birth of religion out of the belly of new tech. As it was in the beginning, so it became in all its puns. Deeeelightful. - Brendan

I'm a total Apple fan (I bought my first 100 shares at $60). I love the twist of the two theories. :)

So clever. I saw a news item that predicted computers will have consciousness by 2025. Scary thought.

Marion said...
