Turns out God does exist! Only, He's not the most authoritative one out there. He's more like a regional manager—one who administers this and a few other minor galaxies. He and his coworkers give centurial reports to the Somewhat Most High, who Herself is only fifth or sixth on the totem pole. Apparently there’s a lot of jockeying for Her position, which hasn’t even been vacant for a whole zettasecond (1021 seconds, or about 32 trillion years). At one point God was next in line, but His seeming inability to keep us humans under control hasn’t exactly helped His chances.
