In America it seems that no Spring or Summer holiday is quite complete without some fool killing himself through his own drunken stupidity. This just past Independence Day the requisite fool was Maine’s Devon Staples, who killed himself instantly when he tried to launch a firework mortar tube from the top of his head.
Yep! Sometimes, as in this case, the gene pool is self-cleaning.
And I just know that Staples gleefully shouted out something akin to, “Hey guys! Watch this!” right before triggering his pyrotechnic demise. 😆
For the Blue Bellies out there reading this, as a Southern man I can tell you that any variant of the call, “Hey guys! Watch this!” will trigger an instant and visceral reaction of Duck and Cover among those of us who would like to continue living. OK, OK! These days it probably triggers an instant and visceral reaction of Duck, Cover, and Get Out The Camera Phone, but you get what I mean.
But hey! Devon Staples, a dog walker and former Disney theme park cast member, has likely secured himself a lasting place in history…as a 2015 recipient of the Darwin Award.
Obama seemed pretty proud of his regime’s “Jobs for Jihadis” program to counter Islamic terrorism.
Who’d Hire Them?
Take a look at a sampling of them though. Who’d hire them? I can’t see where any amount of economic improvement and increased employment opportunities outside of the suicide bomber marketspace would help them much, if at all. 😆
When it comes right down to it, primate behavior is primate behavior. Only the specifics of the stimuli and responses change somewhat.
Sadly Similar In So Many Ways
The one sort of bright side to this, if you’re not a strict Creationist, is that the sad similarities between the Black rioters and looters in Ferguson and elsewhere and the average troop of angry or hungry monkeys is strong evidence in support of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
Sometimes it truly amazes me that the Muslim terrorists and jihadis can continue to sow so much fear across the globe. It’s not as if the ragheads are well known for their intelligence…
I mean really! The Russians’ RPG-7 is probably the single most effective, durable, and easy to use and maintain rocket-propelled grenade launcher in the world. Young children have even used it effectively. Yet, somehow the Muslims can’t seem to get the hang of it.
When You’re Too Stupid To Use a RPG-7…
They’re not so good with mortars either. 😛 ROFLMAO – I guess, “Allahu Akbar!” is Jihadi for, “Hey y’all, watch this!” The results certainly seem to be similar and similarly evolutionarily self-correcting.
But, as much as my Schadenfreude is peaked by the bint’s moaning and wailing in the background, what is with these jihadi vermin and home movies of them trying to attack people?
More and more of late Evolution and Creationism are making the news once again in America. What both amazes and amuses me is that the current crop of arguers seem to think this is a new thing. It isn’t. The only thing that has changed is which side currently has the legal upper hand in the argument over Evolution vs. Creationism.
What’s most amazing to me is that the Evolutionists act like evolution is accepted fact and that it’s only fringe, “extremist” Christians who believe in- or accept the possibility of Creationism.
Much like the fallacy that the Evolution vs. Creationism is new, the belief that in America evolution is accepted fact and that it’s only fringe, “extremist” Christians who are Creationists is a self-serving fantasy of the Evolutionists. In point of replicable, scientific fact, as of 2012: 46% of Americans believe in the Creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years; 32% believe that humans evolved, but with God’s guidance, i.e., Intelligent Design; and only 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process. These figures have been largely unchanging over the last 30 years of polling.
Creationism – Intelligent Design – Evolution from 1982 – 2012
As one can see, within America, the Godless view of Evolution is itself something of a non-survival trait and, hence, an evolutionary dead end. 😉
It must also be noted that Evolution wasn’t even close to the de facto science curriculum in American high schools until the beginning parts of the mid-20th century. Indeed, by 1925 a number of states had passed, and more had introduced, laws outlawing the teaching of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and these laws, by and large, weren’t overturned until 1960s. Additionally, since the 1960s and through today, various states have enacted laws, with admittedly mixed results, to bring the teaching of Evolution more in line with the normative viewpoints and beliefs of the American people.
So it’s both amazing and amusing to me the the Evolutionist think this is a new argument and/or that they hold the majority opinion on the matter. If anything, they should be damned glad that they’re allowed to teach it all instead of complaining whenever it sought to teach alternatives to Evolution alongside of it.
NOTE: For the record, my personal views fall in an odd place between Intelligent Design and Evolution. In other words, I am a soul who has a body and I’m not sold on the idea that the God(s) took any more hand in designing that body other than to ensure that it would evolve into a form that could make the soul’s desires tangible, material, and enactable. Then, I believe that all science is theology.
