You’re in luck, dear reader. The absence of news means we can present yet another creative challenge. This has the potential to be a good one.
Everyone knows (well, not ol’ Hambo) that aside from its merits, the bible is an utterly wretched science book. We’ve frequently mentioned a few of its major blunders, for example, the bible clearly states that The Earth Is Flat, and also The Earth Does Not Move, and that Pi Equals 3, and we live in a Geocentric Universe. There’s also Adam & Eve, Noah’s Flood, and an ark-load of other familiar items.
But those are well-known. Today’s challenge is for you to present us with your favorite but little-known bible science blunder. You must be careful, however. It can’t be something that’s ambiguous; the scripture has to be clear on the point you mention. The form of today’s challenge is that you must tell us, with reasonable brevity:
You know the rules: You may enter the contest as many times as you wish, but you must avoid profanity, vulgarity, childish anatomical analogies, etc. Also, avoid slanderous statements about individuals. Feel free to comment on the entries submitted by others — with praise, criticism, or whatever — but you must do so tastefully.
There may not be a winner of this contest, but if there is, your Curmudgeon will decide, and whenever we get around to it we’ll announce who the winner is. There is no tangible prize — as always in life’s great challenges, the accomplishment is its own reward. We now throw open the comments section, dear reader. Go for it!
