The deepest mystery we recognize
Is how the Universe has come to be,
And yet for all our science it defies
Our fruitless probes into Reality.
Yes, science has revealed some of its laws
That chemistry and physics have explained,
But still we have no knowledge what first cause
Brought it all forth, and how it is sustained.
Good Orderly Direction, nicknamed GOD,
Has given rise to our mythology
That postulates we have been made from sod,
The artifact of a grand deity,
For it seems simple logic to suppose
That ultimately like from like arose.
