This is becoming all too common — a total lack of creationist news. The first time it happened to us we wrote Intelligent Designer on Holiday, in which we attributed the quiet period to the fact that the Intelligent Designer had temporarily become romantically involved with the Tooth Fairy.
But it’s been happening with increasing frequency, and the news lulls are lasting longer than ever. Creationists just can’t seem to get into the news these days. But why? It’s true that they have no published research in any respected journal, and their “science” has no credibility in the academic world. But that has always been true.
Nevertheless, creationists used to at least try to legislate their nonsense into public school science classes. Those efforts never went anywhere — except for Louisiana and Tennessee. Idiots in other state legislatures keep trying to get creationist legislation passed, but always without success. So what can they do? Produce another “documentary” like Expelled? Write more vanity press books?
We’ve asked this before, but the question is more urgent now than ever. We need you to suggest something — anything! — creationists could do to get their “science” in the news. We’re not looking for a scandal — although it would certainly be amusing if that were to happen. We want real news.
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!
