Dear Discovery Institute–


Yours in Christ–


The DI is going to be in Oklahoma

To show a stupid movie, AGAIN.

Gee, I wonder if the ‘movie’ is going to be a bunch of assholes herp-durping about something pretty with stupid (probably stolen) computer animations with a message of ‘GORSH! AINT IT PURDY! Therefore the Universe was Created 6000 years ago by the Christian deity who went on to Specially Create humans via Adam and Eve and then Jesus Christ died on The Cross for your sins and was Resurrected three days later and unicorns got drowned somewhere in there too and These Words Are Capitalized for no reason.” OH MY GOD THATS EXACTLY WHAT ITS ABOUT.

And a couple ‘fellows’ are going to use it as an excuse to jack-off onstage, AGAIN.


This isnt 2005.


I mean, in another 15 years or so Creationism might be a nostalgia win. Hipsters might run around with ‘The Edge of Evolution’ under their arms for the irony (‘Darwins Black Box’ is too mainstream), but currently, Creationism is just old.

Its boring. Youre boring everybody. QUIT BORING EVERYONE.

Learn how to knit or something. Jesus Christ. Fucking losers.

    Come on, Abbie. You know you want to go. They don’t say Casey will be there, but you can still flip a bird at whoever does the show.

    Love your optimism, Abbie. But creationism has been around for a century, and from what I can tell it’s hasn’t been losing ground. Not in the general US population, anyway. The only thing that’s changed in the last decade is that the battle lines have been more sharply demarcated. Like abortion in the 80s et al, it’ a subject that’s coming up more and more frequently in political discussions.

    Should we expect an Smith-Nelson encounter? Should we bring cameras?

    Abbie: I will save you a seat – on the aisle! I know you want to come – so do it. Others are planning opposition Q and A and perhaps some other things not to be revealed at this point.

    I wouldn’t wish the DI on anyone’s city or state, but if they decide they like Oklahoma so much that they pack up and leave Seattle to settle down there, I won’t complain.

    Opps, looks I confused part 1 with part 2. Apologies.

    Regarding evolutionism. I spoke recently with some people in Kansas. Great bunch of people down there. I’m not sure what you’re complaining about–if the people of Oklahoma are anything like Kansas, you can probably leave the keys to your car and your apartment door unlocked. They also seem to have an excellent grasp of evolution, and understand the difference between science (observable micro-evolution) and imagination (macro-evolution).

    BTW, my 2nd grader loved–just loved–the tone of this series of posts. She’s going to paraphrase it as she bullies a sissy boy who has two mommies at school tomorrow. She hoping he transfers to some other school. Most of the class doesn’t like him, either.

    I used to teach elementary school and I totally love this series of posts. Creationism deserves exactly zero respect. Same with bigots like Sally Kern.

    I get along with my religious and theist friends quite well, partly because we all join together in openly mocking the unabashed idiocy of comments like “They also seem to have an excellent grasp of evolution, and understand the difference between science (observable micro-evolution) and imagination (macro-evolution).” That there is a difference is the only imagined thing there, Billy. You – as an adult living in the 21st century – have absolutely no excuse not to get that.

    Keep it up, Abbie. Don’t let deliberately under-informed trolls who want us all to let them openly lie to children about their superstitions stop you. We look forward to seeing you in Tulsa again.

    “Jesus Cannot Pee by Design”
    Haikus from a funny week in the veterinary emergency department

    On the triage board:
    “Jesus”- TOP PRIORITY
    His pain score is HIGH.

    This is to say
    Jesus has been admitted
    into the E.D.

    Jesus’ chart says
    “Urinary Obstruction:
    Possible stricture”

    His wang is too small.
    Do humans have this problem?
    It’s “Stupid Design”.

    Zen old dog Moses
    Stopped for ice cream on the way
    to the promised land.

    Moses drools and sighs
    Bradycardia due to
    “Banannibis” ice cream.

    Rounds will not be dull
    thanks to Jesus and Moses
    Drooling and purring.


    PS: Even though veterinary medicine isn’t under HIPPA, details of this case has been altered to protect (and respect!) the patient’s and the client’s privacy.

    The movie makers, Illustra Media, used to be the media propaganda arm of the uber-creationist Moody Bible Institute. I’ll see if I can find the pedigree and post it here. No science here at all.

    Too bad they didn’t tackle the metamorphosis of frogs. Its maybe not being so spectacular as a butterfly’s but nicely depicts the evolutionary transformation of fish to land living tetrapod.

    I’m sorry DI is coming to OK, but if they are there, then they won’t be here for a few days.
