There are times, dear reader, when the universe seems to be telling us something, and today is one of those times. Consider these facts:
On this date, 13 March, in 1781, William Herschel discovered the seventh planet of the solar system — Uranus.
On this date, 13 March, in 1925, the Butler Act was passed in the Tennessee Senate, which prohibited the theory of evolution from being taught in that state. Having previously passed in the House, it was signed into law a week later. John Scopes was charged with violating the law on 05 May of that year, resulting in the Scopes Trial.
On this date, 13 March, we all reset our clocks in mindless, servile obedience to the tyrannical Uniform Time Act, a topic about which we’ve previously written. See: Creationism and Daylight Saving Time.
If that grand, triple coincidence doesn’t convince you of intelligent design, then nothing will.
