That's not what I'm saying.  What I'm saying is while telling everyone to

from behaving badly, please make sure we have a switch in place that allows
the rest of us to continue as-is.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
