As we write these words, the asteroid, designated 2012 DA14, will be zooming by the Earth. The news programs seem to be reporting nothing else. Because of our sensitivity to the views of creationists, we herewith offer some of what is undoubtedly their thinking.
It’s a sign! Yes, a sign. We must change our ways. Abandon Darwinism! Return to Genesis! Only creation science can save us!
It’s the gays! And porn. And abortions. And contraception. The whole universe groans as a result of these sins. We must return to the blessed ways of our forefathers.
It’s global warming! Oh, wait — that’s a hoax. But if it’s not, then it’s the environmentalists. Their meddling is causing these things. And Big Oil too.
It’s Obama’s fault. Or maybe it’s Bush’s fault. It’s definitely someone’s fault. Probably Darwin.
These things never happened back in the early days of Adam and Eve. Their sin has cursed all of creation, bringing these catastrophes upon us.
If we somehow escape total extinction, it’s only because we’ve been given one last chance. It’s also because of the ceaseless prayers of creationists. Repent now, before it’s too late!
Okay, sorry for the rant. We were momentarily overwhelmed. Tomorrow we’re going to be embarrassed by this post, but for the moment we just couldn’t resist. We promise that we will now return to our regularly scheduled blog.
