The election, for reasons we can’t imagine, appears to have silenced all of our usual sources of creationist news. They haven’t said anything even remotely interesting to us. So we’ll take advantage of the situation to present another Creative Challenge.
The US will soon have a new president. Donald Trump is no creationist, but neither is he a scientist. He’s said some goofy things, especially about climate change, and he may try to do some goofy things. Nevertheless he’s obviously not a religious fanatic, and at least so far, his election hasn’t caused any jubilation among creationists or theocrats. He never pandered to them, and they don’t seem to regard him as one of their own. His vice president, on the other hand, certainly is a creationist.
Today’s challenge is for you to suggest something — anything! — creationists (either the bible type or the Discoveroids), could do to use the election results to their advantage. We’re not trying to help them, but it would be useful if we knew what to watch for. 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!
