There’s not much news to blog about. Perhaps the creationists are depressed because they know it’s only two weeks until Kitzmas. This year will be the eleventh anniversary of the decision on 20 December 2005 by Judge John E. Jones III in the case of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District.
The Discoveroids always put up a post explaining why it was an incompetent decision, but those were usually from Casey. He’s gone now, so we’ll have to see who takes over that job.
Speaking of the Discoveroids, this is when they start posting about their Top Ten accomplishments for the year. This year’s list — if they have one — should be very entertaining. They have nothing to show for their legislative and courtroom efforts, or for their efforts to penetrate the academic world — except for bible colleges, where where creationism has always been entrenched. As for what they call research, well … let’s see what they tell us. They’ll probably brag about their books and videos. What else have they got?
As for politics, the only hard-core creationist selected so far for Trump’s cabinet is Ben Carson. He’ll be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development — where neither creationism nor his neurosurgery career will be relevant.
There’s also the impending End of the World, due to the expected collision with Planet Nibiru, but there’s nothing we can do about it, so why worry?.
That’s all there is, so we once again need to entertain ourselves. We therefore declare another Intellectual Free Fire Zone. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — 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.
