Everything is changing. That shouldn’t surprise us, because everything is always changing. But in the blogosphere it’s happening rapidly. We’re approaching the end of another blogging year, and we see some radical adjustments that need to be made. For one thing, our continuous news sweeps need re-programming.
No more will our elaborate satellite network continuously search for news of Ronda Storms, Kathy Martin, or David Coppedge. In the past, those were names that inspired dozens of blog articles. But now, as they leave office or depart the courtroom, those people will fade into creationist oblivion, to be found only in our archives — or maybe rolling around on the floor of some rural church. They’ll be joining the ranks of previously prominent creationist news-makers like Don McLeroy, Harun Yahya, and Kent Hovind, who used to attract our Curmudgeonly attention, but who have faded into obscurity.
Others will take their places in our cyber pages. The ludicrous legion is large — and there will never be a shortage of those who deny reality and insist that others do so too.
Until new names arise, we can always rely on the institutional sources of creationism — AIG, ICR, and of course the Discoveroids. And there are still prominent individuals out there — people like Jack Chick and Ray Comfort. Also, we can confidently predict that in the coming legislative sessions, more states will attract our attention as their brilliant legislators try to mandate the teaching of creationism in their schools. It’s also likely that new court cases that will pop up here and there. We’ll always have material for our humble blog.
But for the moment, all is quiet. Well, Kitzmas is coming. That’s our annual festival in honor of the decision on 20 December 2005 by Judge John E. Jones III in the case of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District.
Celebrate as hard as you can this year, dear reader, because the day after Kitzmas is 21 December, which will be The End of the World according to the Mayans. After that, we’ll see what, if anything, remains to be said.
Hey, do you like the pic which adorns this post? It was made by Tomato Addict. Below the product name it says “Concentrated Enlightenment,” and below a miniature copy of our traditional header pic it says: “Proudly blogging on WordPress since 2008.” After a few more posts, when this drops off your screen, we’ll probably add it to one of those widgets in the sidebar.
