God knows all

Scene: The Garden of Eden. Adam is gazing happily at the sky, and God is gazing back.
Adam: It is a wonderful day, o Lord.
A: The slight wind, and the smell of flowers, and the buzzing of the, um the...
He thinks for a moment.
A: Those buzzing things... If only there was a better way to remember things than by my poor old head... oh! Bees. The buzzing of the bees. So peaceful and nice.
G: Good to hear that.
A: You have indeed made a wonderful place, o Lord, and I can feel nothing but humble love that you have let us two live in here.
A: There is no better place for an eternal life!
There is a great snort from the heavens.
A: Sorry, o Lord?
G: Uh, nothing. Go on, please.
A: Though I am but a weak and imperfect reflection of you, o Lord, I shall always do my best to obey your every command ---
G: Hee hee.
A: --- but even should I fail, or misinterpret your meaning ---
G: Eh eh eh.
A: --- I shall rely on your infinite love and forgiveness.
G: You're killing me, Adam.
Adam is puzzled.
A: I understand not, o Lord.
G: Don't worry about it. You cannot see the world, its past and its future, as I do. But forgive me, o First of Men --- I shall have to leave for a while, eventhough I am always here.
A: I love you, o Lord. Bye.
There is much less presence. Adam picks up a blade of grass and munches on it. It tastes sweet. Soon after Eve arrives, telling of a fruit of even better taste.
In the wind, one can hear echoes of malevolently omniscient sniggering.
