African Creator God

Harassed God of Creation

After making the world, he sat back and relaxed. But it wasn’t long before all living things discovered sex. With the subsequent flirting, breeding, fighting and arguing, conflict escalated to terrible proportions.

The world became far too noisy for his sensitive ears to bear. So HUVEANE tried to get away from it all by climbing into the sky. (Things like that are easy if you are a God. He just hammered pegs into the air like a mountaineer.)

Up and up he went. Up and more up. Every so often he paused to see if he was out of earshot, but no, the howling screaming roaring racket was still in evidence.

He is still climbing. If you sit back and listen to the world around you for a moment you may understand why.
