Only Three More Saturdays After Today

That’s right, dear reader. After today, Saturday the 24th of November, there will be only three more — on December first, eighth, and fifteenth. That’s it! There won’t be any more — not ever, because the predicted End of the World will be on Friday, 21 December. After that it’s all over.

So what shall we do in the little time that remains? For one thing, you might contemplate how the impending End of All Things is affecting creationists, compared to the way sane people are dealing with it. Crises tend to bring out the best and the worst in people, and a crisis like the one we’re all facing is the last opportunity we’re ever going to have to confirm that old maxim. So let’s look at a few examples of the differences between creationists and the better half of the Sapiens species:

1. Toilet cameras. We’ve seen that a high-ranking creationist is suspected of planting one in a politician’s office (see Creationist Suspected of Bathroom Voyeurism), and as a result his creationist colleagues have — shall we say — Expelled him. How many other such devices have been planted by creationists but not yet found? We’ll probably never know.

2. Unending lies and propaganda. Just visit any creationist website for verification.

3. Being Discoveroids. No further explanation is necessary.

4. Waging continuous war on science. See WorldNetDaily: What War on Science?

5. Claiming that they have a monopoly on logic. See Creationism and Logic, Part 3.

There are many more ways in which creationists deviate from reality, but those examples will be sufficient. And so, as we approach The End, we suggest that the best we can do is to continue to be fully human. If the Mayan prophecy comes true on 21 December, well then, afterwards it won’t matter. Until then, nothing else matters.

There being no other news to write about at the moment, we may as well use this post as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Have at it.

  1. I have a challenge for anyone who claims to believe the world is coming to and on 21 December 2012: I challenge them to sign a legal document irrevocably leaving me all their worldly possessions, money, bank accounts, 401k, pensions, stock, bonds, real estate, etc., effective 1201 AM 22 December 2012.

    If the World ends the night before the effective date of the transfer, it should no skin off their teeth to agree to it.

    And if they don’t? Then so much for their faith in the end of the World.

  2. I am thinking that perhaps we will return to Oskar Blues in Lyons, CO for some bbq and beer, similar to the day on which Harold Camping said the world would end. When 6 pm Mountain Time came and went, a cheer went up, and folks at a table near ours pulled out t-shirts that they had hand-painted several slogans regarding their survival of the end of the world.

    A tempting proposition, Longie. I shall consider it.

  4. For all your Barking Mad Paranoid Requisites, visit http://www.december212012.com/.

    Can’t wait to click over there again — on 22 December…

  5. Mega – thanks for the great link – can’t wait to spend some time there!

  6. I went out today and bought a Corvette. Why not, I won’t have to pay for it, will I?

  7. This means I’ll never get to go on a date with Haile Berry, doesn’t it.

  8. You have almost a month doodle – get to work!

  9. With regard to Haile Berry,Douglas E encourages doodlebugger:

    You have almost a month doodle – get to work!

    But do bear in mind: no truly classy woman likes to be rushed about anything.

    For example, Olivia and I booked the whole of 2010 and 2011 exclusively as, ah…foreplay…, for this present climactic year.

    She deserves no less

  10. With time running so short, many guys may not be looking for ‘classy’ :-)

  11. Good point, Douglas E.

    Never wear your ‘Armageddon glasses’ in a bar…

  12. Megalonyx fantasizes: “Olivia and I …”

    She confided in me that after one nightmarish evening with you, she wouldn’t go through that again if you were the last man on earth and if it were a certainty the world was going to end.

  13. Douglas E “With time running so short, many guys may not be looking for ‘classy’ “

    Yep — Just like closing time at the bar. Every woman looks beautiful when seen through the bottom of a beer mug.

  14. @Mega: Great minds think alike.

  15. Yup – Mickey Gilly – The girls all get prettier at closing time.

  16. Oops – did not mean to embed. Curmy may have a word about this…..

  17. Our Curmudgeon, who has been indefatigable in his many splendid revelations of shameless Creationist quote-mining, appears to have unfortunately been contaminated by his brave and repeated exposure to those dark arts. For example, he claims the following to be a fair summary of an exchange between myself and the magnificent Olivia:

    She confided in me that after one nightmarish evening with you, she wouldn’t go through that again if you were the last man on earth and if it were a certainty the world was going to end.

    In fact, her actual words on that occasion (which may possibly, for all I know, have also been faithfully recorded on some Creationist spy cam) were as follows:

    Megalonyx, in meeting you, I have at last found a real man! I will certainly follow you to the ends of the earth!

  18. Well, Meg & Curmy, I hope the two of you don’t get so lost in your fantasies of Olivia the your minds lose the capacity to reason, because we would certainly miss your writings.

    Speaking of the capacity for reason, Curmy, I see that the voters of your great state of Florida have retained theirs enough to turn down the proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution that would have permitted state funds to go to religious schools. (At the moment, I’m in New Smyrna Beach reading the Orlando Sentinel the old-fashioned way — on paper.)

    However, the headline article implies it’s a moot point — $229 million in state funds already goes to private and religious schools through the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program. The money for the program comes from corporate “contributions” that certain companies can pay in lieu of state income tax. (Seems to me it’s just a tax by a different name, but who am I to say how Floridians interpret their state’s Constitution?)

    This should link to the online version of the article I’m reading —

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/features/education/os-tax-credit-religious-schools-20121124,0,4899163.story

    One of the schools mentioned, Kingsway Christian Academy in Orange County, is operated by the Faith Creation Fellowship church, and “uses the A Beka Book series of Christian texts that are controversial for teaching strict biblical creationism in science classes and dismissing as heresy the evolution theory of man’s origin taught in public schools.” (Bold added.)

    Looks like you have a battle on your hands right here in your home state, Curmy.

  19. Speaking of Olivia, did I mention that I visited my old alma mater, Imperial College, where Olivia works, this summer? Yep, wandered around the halls and undoubtedly inhaled some of the carbon dioxide molecules that Olivia exhaled. Just saying.

    Egad, there’s been another!

    Yes, they happen more often than you realize. As a matter of fact, you could easily change the topic of your blog and work full-time covering the various bugging incidents that occur. But the “ick” factor would be pretty high. From the article:

    Officers respond (sic) to the fast food restaurant and found a cell phone hidden in a vent of the women’s restroom.

    As I said before, you tend to find them in vents. That’s because then they don’t have to dig a hole in the wall and cover it up. Plus, it’s easy to get to in order to change the batteries. There’s a company called Research Electronics International (REI) that manufactures TSCM (technical surveillance countermeasures, aka “bug sweeps”) equipment. They publish a quarterly newsletter that talks about many such incidents.

  21. Gary says: “As a matter of fact, you could easily change the topic of your blog and work full-time covering the various bugging incidents that occur.”

    No need to change topics. We’ve learned that creationism includes toilet bugging.

  22. Eeew! Buggy toilets! Cockroaches, centipedes, spiders….
