It’s been a long time since we’ve had one of these. Fortunately, the current lull in The Controversy between evolution and creationism gives us an opportunity to present another challenge to you, dear reader.
We have previously said that if creationists were consistent about their faith in the bible — that every word of it is The Truth™ — then not only would they believe in Adam & Eve, six-day creation around 6,000 years ago, and the Flood, they should also insist that The Earth Is Flat!, it’s covered by the dome of the Firmament, the solar system is all wrong because The Earth Does Not Move!, and a number of other things that were common beliefs 3,000 years ago when Genesis was written, but which have since then been shown to be wrong.
And that brings us to today’s challenge, dear reader. You’re not limited to Genesis, but using the bible as an infallible guide, besides the items already mentioned, 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!
