In the beginning

In the beginning, HE created WORD.

  • In the beginning, HE created WORD.

  • On the second day, all Knowledge sprung forth from WORD.

  • HE saw it was good. And so it was. On the third day, Common Standards were decreed to be the Truth. And so it was.

  • On the fourth day HE said, "Let the Truth come to light through the goodness of TESTS, let them be abundant throughout the land."

  • On the fifth day, Test Takers were created in his own image and HE said let them be masters of the earth.

  • HE saw all he had made, and indeed it was very good. Evening came and morning came: the sixth day.

  • On this day HE anointed the guardians of the Truth with heavenly gifts and earthly riches.

  • Before resting on the seventh day, He fashioned FLEDGLINGS whom he called forth to populate the houses of scripted learning.

  • And as the darkness descended upon the seventh day, HE declared himself the ALMIGHTY.
