From the movie Time Bandits by Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin, a lovely rant by the character "Evil" (played by David Warner) on cleaning up the world and starting over:
... We have work to do. No lesser work than the overthrowing of Creation itself. We will remake man in our image, not His. We will turn mountains into sea, and the skies into rivers, the fjords into deserts, and the deserts into quagmire... into icebergs, and the icebergs into fire, and the fire into a mighty, rushing wind which will cover the face of the earth and wipe clean the scourge of woolly thinking once and for all!
