This is not a joke. It is nothing but the truth.
A man pleaded with GOD.
"Dear GOD, why don't you send us men and women who can find a cure for cancer, aids and heart disease, who can help the poor, feed the hungry and who can stop war?"
GOD replied, "I did."
"But... but... where are they?"
"They came back to Me almost at once: You
aborted
them."
