We’ve been trying, really we have. But except for the Republican Convention, there’s nothing going on. Well, there’s stuff like this:
In the Daily Express we found: Near death experience: Woman sees GOD in space in afterlife claims. That’s too ridiculous, even for a blog that provides entertainment by writing about nonsense.
Well then, what about the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the granddaddy of all creationist outfits, the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom? Their creation scientists haven’t been doing much lately, but today we found this: Picture Perfect: A Youthful Saturn. Yeah, yeah — the planets look young. Of course they do — it’s a young universe! They’ve written about the same stuff before, and we didn’t want to slog through it again. See, e.g.: ICR: It’s a Young Solar System.
Well, there’s always the Discoveroids. What have they been doing lately? They’re writing about dead fiction authors — e.g.: C. S. Lewis, Science, and Science Fiction. That stuff may thrill their fans and patrons, but we’re not going to bother with it.
So we’re declaring another Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. As with all our free-fire zones, 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, we now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
