There’s no creationism news out there, but that won’t stop your Curmudgeon. Here are some items that — with a bit of creativity — can easily be material for The Controversy. Let’s see if you’ve got the talent to connect the dots:
1: From channel 4, the NBC affiliate in Washington, DC: Snake in a Toilet! Arlington Woman Makes Startling Discovery. One excerpt:
A Virginia woman called Animal Control last week after she found a snake in a toilet in an Arlington County apartment. To repeat: She. Found. A. Snake. In. A. Toilet. An animal control officer was able to safely remove the “lost and confused” snake and brought him to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, the animal shelter said in a Facebook post Tuesday. The snake is a juvenile yellow anaconda, the animal shelter said. Yellow anacondas can grow to be 13 feet long and to weigh more than 100 pounds. The shelter has named him Sir Hiss.
2: From WSOC-TV in Charlotte, North Carolina: Pastor charged in connection with 9 armed robberies in Charlotte. One excerpt:
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested a Charlotte pastor wanted in connection with nine armed robberies from Charlotte businesses. John Thomas Lindsey, 47, who is a pastor at True Love Church of Refuge on Nations Ford Road, was taken into custody Wednesday morning and charged with nine counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, nine counts of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
3: Most surprising of all, a new Jack Chick comic: No Justice? It’s not about creationism, but it’s got a whole lotta bible stuff.
We now declare this to be the first Intellectual Free Fire Zone of the new year. You wanna talk about Trump? Go ahead. 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.
The comments are open, dear reader. Have at it.
