Temporal Recovery — Free Fire Zone

We are all recovering from the weekend’s madness, forced upon us by the annual end of Daylight saving time, which has caused another disruption of the natural order of things.

It appears that the creationists are also in recovery mode, because they haven’t generated anything worth our time for a few days now. That’s entirely understandable. Their grasp of reality is tenuous at best, and times like this throw them even further into cognitive chaos.

Therefore, it’s up to you to keep things going. We hereby declare another Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, or even astrology, theology, mythology, and sociology — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.

We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.

  1. Whenever there is a lull in creationist news I picture them finalizing a cunning plan and placing a large order with the Acme company for anvils.

  2. …and then running off the cliff edge and over thin air–until they look down.

  3. I got all excited thinking Ben Carson had come to his senses and was mocking Hambo when I read about his recent tweet:

    It is important to remember that amateurs built the Ark and it was the professionals that built the Titanic

    But alas–he was referring to Noah and the “real” Ark…

  4. And the pros can look with pride on their work as it still exists and can be seen!! And the amateur built ark is where????

  5. @Megalonyx:
    Wasn’t Carson a professional surgeon?

    Medical school is overrated – let’s let barbers do it.

  7. It was the professionals that designed the Titanic – it was the amateurs who bought the materials and assembled the labour, which is where a lot of the problems lay with that vessel.

  8. Carson appears to be channeling Don McLeroy’s “someone needs to stand up to the experts” comment. Well, except for their fields, of course.

  9. michaelfugate

    Not to mention running into an iceberg…..

  10. Wait, Don McLeroy ran into an iceberg?!?!? (Yes, I slay me.)

  11. Who designed Noah’s Ark?

    Is God not a professional? That could explain a lot of design features in the world of life.

    Does the Bible tell us what Noah’s expertise was? Do we know whether he was a professional Ark-builder? After working on it for a century, maybe he would be counted on as a master Ark-wright?

    Or, this has just occurred to me, is this one of the prophecies of Ellen G. White?

  12. I believe actually that it was the amateur who captained the Titanic that was the problem.

    @SC:
    Sorry, I like DST.
    I lived in New Zealand before DST (they now have DST), and it got dark early in summer;
    and I went to Japan 45 years ago (and it still doesn’t have DST), and it still gets dark early in summer – no after-dinner strolls, unless you like walking in the dark.
    I like DST.
