Evolution Sunday was couple weekends back, right? Never got there.*
But the thought intrigued me, could we help these forlorn people out by composing some praise songs?
Hey, how about”mutation” instead of “salvation” or “selection” instead of “perfection” … Brainstorming just to get you started.
No blasphemy now. Our list guvs are all devout Christians. But, given popular iconography, we may certainly refer to the atheists’ object of adoration as “the Beard,” and help them look openly as well as privately ridiculous.
(*At my church that Sunday, we were mostly doing what churches have done for 2000 years, so we must be doing everything wrong, right? The competition says so, and we of course agree with them politely and go right on doing it.)
This just in, for the Beardology file:
On February 9, 2011, Representative Pete Stark proposed H.Res. 81, expressing support for designating February 12, 2011 as Darwin Day and recognizing the importance of science to the betterment of humanity.
Curious, this “betterment of humanity” thing. To judge from their Website, these Center for Inquiry people are otherwise all for abortion and stem cell research. Speaking as someone who served my time as an embryo and fetus honourably, I feel confident in speaking for at least one section of humanity in advising them to get lost and take The Beard with them. But for now, I’d prefer some fun.
