Egads! It's been freakishly busy on this end, and between having the house fumigated and having the deaf cat shaved after a (most likely) bad batch of Frontline anti-flea juice, I've just not had the time to really sit myself down and write in this journal. But, hopefully, the tiny insect menace is now under control, and as soon as I can stop laughing at Deaf Cat and how she went from being a huge bundle of fluffy fur to looking like a cross between a Chihuahua and a French Poodle, I'll try to snap a picture or two and show you the poor beast. As for Dog Cat, well, I'm not allowed to take him to the groomers no matter how doped up he is. They fear him. But, when he visited me this morning, I gave him a quick inspection, and didn't find any bugs on him. So, hopefully the war has been won.
Anyway, that's not why I'm writing today. The reason I'm writing is because I saw a really funny bumper sticker earlier today, and I just had to post about it. The bumper sticker read: "Fish don't walk. And Jesus still lives."
Now, obviously, the whole thing just reminds me of a small child with his or her hands over their ears mumbling "nanana.. I'm not listening! nanana..." It would be funny if it just wasn't so counter-productive to advancing ourselves as a species and society. I have no real problem with a person's individual beliefs, and if you're perfectly happy accepting the Bible as the ultimate truth to Life, the Universe and Everything, that's all well and good for you. Just don't really expect me to believe as you.
Here's the thing: I've seen fish walk. In fact, you can find them right here. Granted, it's not much of a "walk," but it's a manner of transport which is decidedly unfish-like. It's definitely creepy, but it certainly does a lot to disprove the typical bumper-sticker logic employed by a great many Creationists. Sure, fish don't have legs, but until a newborn infant with legs springs from the womb to slap on a pair of Nikes and trot off in pursuit of a pick-up game of basketball, creationism just isn't going to hold water in my book.
Now, as for the whole "Jesus still lives" thing, well, how is it possible for someone who apparently died for our sins to live? Is that the same logic that it's actually somehow possible to "cut and run" from a mission that has been accomplished?
