School Vignette – Who made God

Fourth graders talking behind me as I write a report. “Who made God?” I overhear Felix ask Juan. “God made God,” Juan says confidently. It seems settled until Felix says, “How can God make God?” ‘I don’t know,” Juan answers. After a moment he adds, “God’s mother made him.” “Then who made God’s mother?” Felix replies, “I don’t know… God’s mother’s mother made God.” “And who made her?” “His mother’s mother’s mother,” he repeats. “Stop asking ‘Who made God?'” But Felix insists, “Who made her?” I don’t know Juan yells, “Google it.”
