It was most puzzling — there was nothing out there worth blogging about today. Then we figured out why — tomorrow is the Fourth. There’s never much creationist news at times like this. As we always do on this occasion, we ask our non-US readers to indulge us as we celebrate America’s Independence Day.
You may see some nonsense about the Fourth at creationist websites, but regardless of what they may claim, there was nothing biblical about the American Revolution. Most of the clergy opposed it — divine right of kings, you know. The bible is all about monarchy, on Earth as it is in heaven. It’s certainly no blueprint for the American Revolution, or the Constitution — see Is America a “Christian Nation”?
Speaking of creationists, we found this at the Discoveroids’ website: Celebrate July 4 with Great Reading on Intelligent Design – Now in Handy Paperbacks.
It’s just a promotion for a couple of books by Discoveroids, but you gotta see the opening paragraph:
As Americans celebrate their freedoms and their nation’s founding on July 4, Independence Day, promote independence from evolutionary dogma, and freedom of discussion about science by sharing with your friends two great books for summer reading, just out in paperback.
Independence from evolutionary dogma! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
Anyway, because we’re not expecting any of our kind of news, we’ll have to entertain ourselves. Therefore, we’re declaring another Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. As with all our free-fire zones, 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.
