 The Creation (as seen through Kiwi eyes)

The Creation, as viewed by New Zealanders

I received this humorous article while my wife and I were serving a mission in New Zealand:

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for seven days. Eventually Michael the Archangel found him. He inquired of God “Where were
you?” God sighed a deep sigh of gratification and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds: “Behold my child, look what I have finished making.” Archangel
Michael looked puzzled and said “What is it?” God replied: “It’s another planet, but this time I’ve decided to put LIFE on it. I’ve named it Earth and there’s going to be a balance between everything on it. For example, there’s North America and South America. North America is going to be rich and South America is going to be poor, and the narrow bit joining them – that’s going to be a hot spot. Now look over there, I’ve put a continent with white people in the north and black people in the south, also linked by a hot spot in the middle and I’ve called it the Middle East. And then the Archangel said : “and what’s that long white line there?” And God said
“Ah, that’s the land of the long white cloud – Aotearoa – New Zealand. That’s a very special place. It’s the most beautiful spot on earth; beautiful mountains, lakes,
rivers, streams, a volcanic thermal area, and an exquisite coastline. It will have the best parts of all the rest of the Earth.  These people are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be fond of travelling the world. They’ll be extremely sociable, hard working and high achieving. And I’m going to give them this superhuman, undefeatable rugby team that will be blessed with the most talented and charismatic human specimens on Earth, and they will be admired and feared by all who come across them. I will also make people of this land the greatest sailors to be known on Earth.  Michael the Archangel gasped in wonder and admiration but then, seeming startled, proclaimed: “Hold on a second. What about the BALANCE. You said there was going to be a balance between everything on Earth.”  God smiled and replied:  “Wait until you see their neighbors to the west.”
