Everybody knows about the eclipse scheduled for 21 August. When there was nothing else to blog about, we mentioned it in Solar Eclipse Free Fire Zone, and gave you a link to NASA’s page where they have dozens of links to information.
The Discovery Institute doesn’t have enough to do in their crusade to replace evolution with their theory of intelligent design. Now they’re jumping on the eclipse bandwagon. They actually want to be your go-to website for eclipse information. The latest post at their creationist blog is The Great American Total Solar Eclipse of 2017. It has no author’s byline. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
With less than three weeks to go, anticipation and excitement are building for the August 21 total solar eclipse.
Yeah, they’re really excited at Discoveroid headquarters — in their dingy offices above a gym in a bad part of Seattle. Then they say:
Here at Evolution News [their creationist blog] we are planning a series of posts leading up to and including the day of the eclipse.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] How thoughtful of them! They tell us:
We will cover the history of solar eclipses and their scientific importance, as well as ASTRO 101 primers on their mechanics and safe viewing methods.
All of that information is at the NASA website. They actually give a link to NASA at the very end of their post. So why would anyone go to the Discoveroids for eclipse information? Even the map above their post came from NASA. We recognize it because we used it in our post. They continue:
Wait, did we leave something out? Oh yes, we will also cover the intelligent design aspects of solar eclipses!
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Well, that’s something you won’t find anywhere else. We’ll be monitoring their blog as a source of eclipse entertainment.
