The Stupid-Driven Life — Part XVI

Welcome to our “Stupid Driven” series, in which we offer disconnected observations we’ve made while reporting on The Controversy between evolution and creationism. These nuggets are usually taken from our earlier articles, but all of them were inspired by reading and analyzing the “work” of creationists. And yes, our title is a crude spoof on The Purpose Driven Life.

The last one of these was almost a year ago: Part XV. It has a link to the previous episode, and so on. Everybody ready? Okay, here we go:

You’re probably aware of it, but tonight is the night of the supermoon eclipse, so you might want to go outside and take a look. NASA has an article that should tell you all you need to know: May’s Full Moon Comes with Supermoon Eclipse.

Now consider the Discoveroids’ “science” of intelligent design. Let’s see if you can conjure up an expression that means the opposite. Well, of course you could say “evolution,” but that’s too obvious. They use a lot of expressions themselves when they’re criticizing evolution, like “mindless accidents” and such. But you can do better. Here’s one example to get you going: “natural occurrence.”

∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞

While we’re considering terminology, how would you describe creationists? We’ve called them droolers, ignoramuses, and other such expressions. We’d like to see what you can come up with.

According to Wikipedia’s article on List of religions and spiritual traditions, there are 4,200 religions (and denominations) in the world. today. It’s impossible to estimate how many have existed in the past. For each one, all of their preachers and followers think they’re correct. That’s lovely, but they can’t all be right. Even if one of them really is right, all the rest are wrong — and it’s quite possible that they’re all wrong. So how does anyone know that theirs is the right one?

∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞ π ∞

And now, a little poem to announce what you’ve all been waiting for:

Mars is red, Uranus is blue,
This is a Free Fire Zone
Just for you.

You know the rules, dear reader. Have at it!

    The funny one going around today, “50% of Americans are vaccinated. 50% of Americans are dumb sheep.”

  2. Of the recorded 4,200 religions, our Curmudgeon asks

    So how does anyone know that theirs is the right one?

    The existence and divinity of The Cosmic Aardvark is beyond all question and any doubt!

    I just know it! End of story!

    “… there are 4,200 religions (and denominations) in the world.”

    Wikipedia vastly underestimates the number of denominations in the world. According to the Center for the Study of Global Christianity, there are a whopping 45,000 different denominations within just Christianity alone.

    HOSANNA FOR A NEW GOD

    Yahweh is decrepit
    Barely surviving
    But hark! Who comes hither?
    It’s the Aardvark arriving!
