Tomorrow is a day to be feared, dear reader. Not only is it Friday the 13th — which is more than enough! — but as we’ve mentioned it before, 13 March is of immense significance to creationists. On that date, two profoundly important events occurred.
In 1781, the celestial orb which we tactfully refer to as the Seventh Planet, the one that dare not speak its name, was discovered by William Herschel.
The discovery of Planet Seven has inspired several Curmudgeonly posts, for example: William Herschel, George III, and Uranus, and also Noah’s Ark Found! On Uranus!, and no one could forget Uranus Park Will Compete with Ark Encounter.
That alone is enough to make 13 March the most important date of the year — but there’s more! On that same date, in 1925, the Tennessee General Assembly approved a bill which became the Butler Act, prohibiting the teaching of the theory of evolution in state-funded schools. It was signed by the Governor a week later and resulted in the world-famous Scopes Trial.
Everyone knows that creationism and Uranus naturally go together, but what is the likelihood of two such amazingly important creationist events happening on the same date? Verily, the odds against it are astronomical! There is only one possible explanation — these things were coordinated by the intelligent designer — blessed be he!
And this year those two events are falling on Friday the 13th. Verily, it’s a day to be feared! Our logic is undeniable.
Therefore, we’re declaring this post to be an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. 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.
Okay, dear reader, the comment section is open — have at it!
