The Signs are Right

The Signs are Right

Forget the Mayans.  I have definitive, incontrovertible proof that the zombie apocalypse (sorry robots, you were too late) is upon us.  Pat Robertson has all but admitted that Young Earth Creationism is wrong!  Okay, clean off your keyboard because I know you just sputtered your libation all over it. Done? Laptop still working?  Good. Read on.

“Look, I know that people will probably try to lynch me when I say this, but Bishop Ussher wasn’t inspired by the Lord when he said that it all took 6,000 years. It just didn’t. You go back in time, you’ve got radiocarbon dating. You got all these things and you’ve got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas.”

I’m pretty certain that somewhere within some forgotten text on Cthulhu one can find:  ”In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.  It shall come to pass that one day, a preacher shall proclaim that which every educated person knows, that the Earth is older than six thousand years and then shall Cthulhu wake.”  Or words to more or less that effect.

Since either zombies are going to rise from the grave or Cthulhu’s advent is upon us, let me start now with the Draft Cthluhu in 2016 movement.  The platform is as simple as can be and fits neatly on a bumper sticker “No More Years”. Catchy, no?

  1. Darn, I was hoping for the robot apocalypse, just to see if they would “upgrade” me. Of course, that would also mean going around saying “Delete! Delete!”

    Not as catchy as “Exterminate!”

    • “You are incompatible. You will be deleted”.

    • I dunno, set to the right beat and some sampling you could make quite a catchy dance track out of “Delete! Delete!”

  2. Would you point me to a credible source for the Pat Robertson quote?

  3. Wow, broken quacks really can be correct. Maybe not twice a day, though.

  4. Maybe it’s Pat Robertson from another dimension, zapped here by accident like Worf in that episode of Star Trek TNG when he kept jumping into parallel realities because of Geordi’s visor. Or maybe aliens?

  5. If you know anything about the history of the YEC movement, this actually shouldn’t come as a surprise. Pat Robertson isn’t a YECer, because he’s too old.

    You see, YEC as a movement really only dates back to the 1950s, when Pat Robertson was already an adult. That’s also the era when evangelical Christian group believed that abortion was a necessary evil if a woman’s health is at risk, and that you shouldn’t vote because that was grubby and worldly.

    My, how times have changed.

    (Of course, the 50s was also the era of segregation and the second “red scare”. At least some things have improved.)
