A doctor, a civil engineer, and a computer scientist were arguing
about what was the oldest profession in the world. The doctor
remarked "Well, in the Bible it says that God created Eve from a rib
taken from Adam. This clearly required surgery so I can rightly
claim that mine is the oldest profession in the world."

The civil engineer interrupted and said "But even earlier in the
book of Genesis, it states that God created the order of the heavens
and the earth from out of the chaos. This was the first and
certainly the most spectacular application of civil engineering.
Therefore, fair doctor, you are wrong; mine is the oldest profession
in the world."

The computer scientist leaned back in his chair, smiled, and said
confidently, "Ah, but who do you think created the chaos?"
