Creationists Creating Curriculum

Bible proselytizers are at it again. They’re proposing a creationist curriculum that would force teachers in Indiana public schools to instruct students in the Bible version of the beginning of time.

These folks never quit even though their beliefs are utterly preposterous.

Nice painting of some naked people but where’s all the dinosaurs?


According to some creationists, for example, men and dinosaurs co-existed. So if Adam and Eve were not expelled from the Garden of Eden, presumably we could all have a pet T-rex.

I’ve often wondered if a T-rex could be house broken. If so where would he mess and who would clean up after him.

Would you have to curb your dinosaur? How big would a pooper scooper be.? Would you need an 18-wheeler to deliver vittles for your pet? Would supermarkets sell dino treats? Would it need rabies shots and a license? Could you attach a leash to his collar and take him for a walk? What would happen if he spied a female T-rex in the park?

All you really have to do to win the Presidential Medal of Freedom is be wrong about the housing bubble, deregulation and the “free market.”  Congratulations, Alan.  You hit the trifecta. 

UPW Senior Reporter Marcy Popindick is reporting that Alan Greenspan has disappeared after publishing an op-ed in the Financial Times.


 Attempts to reach Greenspan have been futile.

Hello, Alan. Alan, are you there? Come in Alan.”

Houston, we have a problem. Alan Greenspan is lost in space.

        Say “cheese” Alan.  Read the Article at HuffingtonPost

Update. According to this developing story, Greenspan is not lost in space. He’s just lost it. The former Federal Reserve Chairman said capitalism is not responsible for income inequality.

A spokesman for the former Fed Chair, speaking under conditions of deep background, stated Greenspan believes that feudalism and the Knights of the Round Table had more to do with inequality, deregulation and the housing bubble than modern capitalism.

Other news organizations are reporting that Greenspan has gone into hiding after making such inane comments in his Financial Times op-ed.

Anybody who still gives one shit about anything this man has to say please raise your hand. Nobody. That’s what I thought.
