Description: 

The Creation of the World and Other Business is a parable inspired by the book of Genesis in the Bible, it explores the classic theme of good versus evil by way of a comedic retelling of the story of the creation of man (and woman). Miller’s God is powerful but lacks wisdom. He needs Adam and Eve to procreate, but doesn’t know how to entice them into starting the process. Onto the scene comes Lucifer, who believes the existence of evil will make sex exciting, a concept God eschews by tossing his black sheep angel into hell. The fallen one retaliates by presenting Eve with an apple — and the war begins. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
