The first American coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in a century will be this Monday — 21 August. Your best source of information is NASA’s eclipse page, where they have dozens of links to everything you need to know.
We’ve been amusing ourselves by posting about the bizarre reactions of creationists, but they don’t have any imagination — it’s all about doom, end times, and repentance. Boring! What we want is your interpretation of the celestial event.
To give you an example of what we’re looking for, we’ll offer our own opinion — the eclipse is a warning to creationists that they should repent.
Why do we say this? Isn’t it obvious? Look at the path of totality! It starts in Oregon, which isn’t very far from Discoveroid headquarters in Seattle; and it crosses Kentucky — close ol’ Hambo’s headquarters. What are the odds of that happening? The eclipse is a warning to creationists that they should abandon Oogity Boogity!
Okay, that was feeble — but it was just to get you started. We know you can do better. 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!
