Pharyngula

Rule of Threes now satisfied

Mr Chicken, the Night Stalker, and now…Henry Morris. There is a kind of cosmic harmony to that trio, in that they all made a living with supernatural silliness to some degree, although Morris…nah, let’s not speak ill of the dead.

    Well, shit. I’ve been calling and e-mailing Morris for years to challenge him to a debate over “Time and Starlight”. He’s consistently refused, and now to get out of having a debate with me, he’s gone and died.

    Chicken.

    So Henry Morris, leading proponent of the worldwide Biblical flood is gone. Someone should name a University after him or something.

    Oh, wait. I’m getting my Morrises mixed up. I’m thinking of one of his sons.

    But how does Don Knotts fit into this?

    It’s the first link. Don’t you remember the Ghost and Mr Chicken?

    You know what? I’m a total ass. The guy I’ve been harassing is Henry Morris, III. He gave a presentation which included the central claim of “Starlight and Time”, which I decided to go to (God only knows why). Evidently, he didn’t even write the thing. I had somehow been under the impression that he’d written it. Of course I’d have known better if I’d read it, but the presentation was such palpable tripe that it could be shown wrong with computations that I did on the back of the brochure.

    Anyway, I’m just going to shut up now. I think I’ll start bothering the guy who *did* write the book.

    I just got word that Octavia Butler died. That sucks ass more than I can say.

    The only way to remember Don Knotts is as Barney Fife!

    Handsome is as handsome does. As long as you speak accurately of the dead, you do them the service they deserve. No more and no less.

    Octavia Butler is a loss. She died way too young.

    I prefer to call it ‘The Rule of Mentally Partitioning Things Into Threes.

    I just read that Morris was an alum of U.Minn. (though presumably not Morris).

    A debate over “Time and Starlight” would be extremely interesting… nice article.
