Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

The monolith has disappeared…


Yes, of course it’s all nonsense but, for the record, the monolith that suddenly appeared in the Utah desert is gone. Two tales we heard:

From a witness:

What proceeded was the monolith heist of the century — and without the need for expert safe cracking tools, ropes, and night vision goggles.

The ragtag team of four “came up and pushed it almost to the ground on one side, before they decided push it back the other when it then popped out and landed on the ground with a loud bang,” according to Bernards.

All it took was a wheelbarrow to run off with the mysterious artifact.

It must have been a strange sight. Bernards recalls seeing “at least 70 different cars (and a plane) in and out” with “nobody following a path or each other.”

The statue in the Utah desert discovered by the Utah Department of Public Safety on November 18 while doing a routine count from the air of bighorn sheep has disappeared, according to the Bureau of Land Management in Utah…

The artwork was removed on Friday night by a person or persons unknown. The BLM swears they had nothing to do with removing it, saying that it was private property and they couldn’t touch it…

To cap off the mystery, it appears that people have been leaving their own monuments to the “monolith.”

The CORRECT explanation, of course, is that it lost the battle for survival of the fittest to fitter competitors and will not contribute, starting from non-life, to the origin of a new type of life via abiogenesis. But apparently, a new monolith has evolved and then suddenly gone extinct in Romania. Nature red in tooth and claw, and all that…

All right nobody can be taking this monolith of thing this seriously And for all you gaming nerds that love “cabin in the woods” out there I was the one that guested Necrons for the December AaronS1978
