The World’s Oldest Profession

A doctor, an engineer, and a computer programmer were debating what the world's oldest profession was. The doctor said that medicine was the oldest because God had performed surgery by removing Adam's rib.

The engineer countered that before that act, God had performed feats of engineering by creating the earth and heavens from nothing.

The doctor conceded that the engineer was right and that engineering was indeed the oldest profession. But then the programmer interjected that programming was even older.

He was chided by both the doctor and the engineer saying that engineering had to be the oldest, because before God had engineered the earth and heavens, there was nothing, only a great void and chaos.

The programmer simply smiled and said: "Where do you think the chaos came from?"
