Evolution vs. Creationism: We Have a Winner

Case closed.

********************************************************************************* “Oh my God! Have you seen Baby On Bored? That’s the blogger that compared her baby to an orangutan. Can you believe that? She obviously doesn’t love her child.”
“Well, maybe she thinks orangutans are really cute and she thinks her baby is cute but she happens to think they sort of look alike and she thought it would be humerous to point that out.”
“Nope. She just hates children. If she loved her child she would have a license plate frame that says Three Kids is Triple the Fun! or she’d write posts about how “crazy” and “chaotic” but absolutely joyful her life is. But she certainly wouldn’t write books that trash motherhood!”
“Hang on a minute. I kind of thought her books were funny. And I didn’t exactly get that she was trashing motherhood at all. In fact, I thought she seemed to love being a mom but just enjoys pointing out the occasional shitty parts and the ridiculousness of it.”
“No. Funny is a mug that says “Don’t bother me til I’ve had my coffee.” It’s not funny to make fun of being a mom.”
“I don’t agree. I like a little edge. Each to their own. Plus I hear she volunteers for the Peace Corp. and that she recently went to Uganda to try and cure AIDS. “
“I think that you’re going straight to hell.”
“Yes you. I bet you not only like those books but you’re voting for Obama too.”

    Sorry, dahling, but this is three whole comments from the same idiot. I’ve had three glasses of wine and can’t even make my own comment show up correctly.

    Orangutans are adorable and ripe with hijinks-y promise. God- willing, my babies are chockful of the same.

    Thanks for being one of my favorite hijinks-y bloggers.

  9. C. David Parsons said,


    The reason is elementary: the Discovery Institute and other ID proponents leave out the Triune God, Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Hence, Richard Dawkins can make the case for “aliens” seeding the earth.

    The Quest for Right, a series of 7 textbooks created for the public schools, represents the ultimate marriage between an in-depth knowledge of biblical phenomena and natural and physical sciences. The several volumes have accomplished that which, heretofore, was deemed impossible: to level the playing field between those who desire a return to physical science in the classroom and those who embrace the theory of evolution. The Quest for Right turns the tide by providing an authoritative and enlightening scientific explanation of natural phenomena which will ultimately dethrone the unprofitable Darwinian view.

    “I am amazed at the breadth of the investigation – scientific history, biblical studies, geology, biology, geography, astronomy, chemistry, paleontology, and so forth – and find the style of writing to be quite lucid and aimed clearly at a general, lay audience.” ? Mark Roberts, former Editor of Biblical Reference Books, Thomas Nelson Publishers.

    The Quest for Right series of books, based on physical science, the old science of cause and effect, has effectively dismantled the quantum additions to the true architecture of the atom. Gone are the nonexistent particles once thought to be complementary to the electron and proton (examples: neutrons, neutrinos, photons, mesons, quarks, Z’s, bosons, etc.) and a host of other pseudo particles.

    To the curious, scientists sought to explain Atomic theory by introducing fantastic particles that supposedly came tumbling out of the impact between two particles, when in fact, the supposed finds were simply particulate debris. There are only two elementary particles which make up the whole of the universe: the proton and electron. All other particles were added via quantum magic and mathematical elucidation in an attempt to explain earthly phenomena without God.

    Introducing the scheme of coincidence, which by definition, “is the systematic ploy of obstructionists who, in lieu of any divine intervention, state that any coincidental grouping or chance union of electrons and protons (and neutrons), regardless of the configuration, always produces a chemical element. This is the mischievous tenet of electron interpretation which states that all physical, chemical, and biological processes result from a change in the electron structure of the atom which, in turn, may be deciphered through the orderly application of mathematics, as outlined in quantum mechanics. A few of the supporting theories are: degrading stars, neutron stars, black holes, extraterrestrial water, antimatter, the absolute dating systems, and the big bang, the explosion of a singularity infinitely smaller than the dot of an “i” from which space, time, and the massive stellar bodies supposedly sprang into being.

    The Quest for Right is not only better at explaining natural phenomena, but also may be verified through testing. As a consequence, the material in the several volumes will not violate the so-called constitutional separation of church and state. Physical science, the old science of cause and effect, will have a long-term sustainability, replacing irresponsible doctrines based on whim. Teachers and students will rejoice in the simplicity of earthly phenomena when entertained by the new discipline.

    So I am the only one who’s all like “huh?” over the last comment?

    Anyway, Stephanie, you’re freaking hilarious and your kiddos are lucky to have such a cool mom. Boo to the haters!

    I meant the “Quest for Right” comment, not the bikini wax one (which was hilarious, by the way).

  18. Black Hockey Jesus said,

    C. David. You flippantly use words like “nonexistent”, “pseudo”, and
    “fantastic” in relation to quantum physics while you write in support of a God that made the world in 6 days and Jesus who did all kinds of crazy fantastic shit. What the fuck is the matter with you? Seriously. What the fuck is the matter with your head?

    What’s so threatening about a universe with a fantastic structure?

    Only 2 elementary particles? Yawwwwwn. You forgot fairy dust. The universe consists of fairy dust and the crushed up bone dust of various amphibians. Ask a child what the world is made of. That’s what this blog is about.

    I forgot 2 more particles the world is made of: my ass and your face. That’s hard science, C. David Parsons.

    Newton is washed up. He has been for 100 years and yet there’s still people like you flapping your gums about cause and effect. Your game is simple. You’re an auto mechanic. You try to speak over our heads so we all nod, give you $800, and praise Jesus.

    Bullshit. The Quest For Right my ass. It’s the Quest For The End Of The Imagination. Have you ever considered what would happen if everyone suddenly just agreed: Hey, C. David Parsons is right. 1 God. 2 Particles.

    Drumming fingers on my desk. Waiting. Twiddling thumbs. Yawning.

    It’s so boring, C. David Parsons. It’s got no soul. Your notion of Truth lacks soul. It’s clearly denoted by your uptight prose.

    This is a blog. It’s jokes. I can’t believe that you’re an actual person coming from a position of sincerity. You make me hug my children and weep.

    Dear NOT Dad Gone Mad (if that IS your real name), sadly, those are not my boobs. Those are the Jaguar’s breasts and they’re fake. She will proudly tell you so herself. Maybe when I sell enough copies of my book I will have fake boobies too. But probably not because I’m way too lazy.”

    BHJ: thanks for sticking up for me but didn’t it seem like that guy just has a whole thing already written (or cribbed) up and he just posts it on various lefty websites? I certainly didn’t think he took the time to write that on my account- although I’d be honored if he did. He probably has a Google Alert on Evolution.

    Ah, posts like this are exactly why I read your blog. You were a voice of sanity after I had my first, two years ago.
    Every now and again I get a note from a first-time mother saying how wonderful everything is and all moments are filled with joy. Seriously, WTF? Thank god you’re out here.

    Your girls are precious.

    It’s funny, I clicked to read your blog just as my husband and I were talking about how socially retarded our toddler is.

    I wasn’t pausing to think about what an evil mom I was, but HAD I been I could have conveniently been able to say BUT AT LEAST I DIDN’T COMPARE HIM TO A MONKEY.

  33. A Mom Two Boys said,

    Since I’ve already been told, in no uncertain terms, that I’m going to hell, I look forward to seeing you and your ape children there. We’ll drink martinis and lounge lava side and make fun of all the tight-asses that have no sense of humor.

    P.S. Who did Jaguar’s boobs? I’m in the market for a good plastic surgeon. And not a creepy one like Dr. Ray (aka Dr. 90210).

    I’m with you on this one.
    But that is because I am an evil mother who was only forced to have children because they wouldn’t let me take home an Orangutan from the zoo.

    that was great! i do enjoy when babies are compared to orangutans. i mean there is nothing funnier than a side by side picture of the two.

    side note – 2 years ago i went to the zoo in houston and they had a baby orangutan. it was a 3 year old child if ever i saw one. it ran up and hit it’s mother and then ran away. it’s mom had a rag that she was dipping in water and then sucking on and the baby took it away and threw it out into the middle of the water hole. i’m telling you my own kids pulled exactly the same kind of mess. it was funny to watch how the mom dealt with the behavior…mostly ignoring it. ahh…at least my kids aren’t three anymore and couldn’t get any ideas.

    I haven’t been by since your first book came out so it’s been a loooonnnng while, and here I see a photo showing you now have TWINS!!! They certainly are an adorable pair!! : ) Hee hee hee!

    Actually, I scrolled around and saw the real twins, and you’ve got gorgeous babies, all three those girlies!

    Got reacquainted with you from Jess Riley’s blogroll!

    I think the baby is rather cuter than the ape, but I’m happy to cuddle with either.

    Uncanny, but not the best example I’ve ever seen. The real question is how well she clings to you when you’re just hanging around, or did we lose that one in evolution?

  45. Shelley said,

    Orangutans, or any monkeys/apes for that matter, are ripe with comparisons to small children. On my own blog last month, I pictorially (is that a word? It should be) compared my five year-old to a baboon. Go ahead and look, tell me you can’t see the resemblance. Just scroll down a bit…you’ll see it.
