We should be pleased when there’s no news of The Controversy between evolution and creationism. What such lulls mean is that — at least for now — the creationism bills are dying in state legislatures, the few pathetic court cases (Coppedge and that California Science Museum thing) are quiescent, and the Discoveroids are in between major initiatives.
There’s never any news from ICR. They pioneered the “modern” creation science movement, and therefore we check in with them for old times’ sake; but all their posts are trivial variations on the same formula: “Lookie here, more proof of Ooogity Booogity!” Over at AIG, Ken Ham is little more than a predictable crank, but he’s successful promoter and he advertises on Fox, so we keep an eye on him. For now he’s making noise, not news.
So we wait, and while we do so we are compelled to offer you the blogging equivalent of junk food, and this post is a good example. But look on the bright side — this is your opportunity to demonstrate your skill at a rare form of humor — creationism jokes. Your Curmudgeon will go first, with this woeful offering:
Yeah, yeah, we know. That was horrible. Okay, dear reader, let’s see if you can do better. You know the rules — keep the language up to our Curmudgeonly standards. Otherwise, go for it.
