Time to bring out your aging hippies and let them celebrate Mother Earth as only they know how....which means you know nothing and they know everything, because they are better folk than you. Look at this Full frontal Solar Assault on Momma, and recoil in horror!
Yes, I used to look at these marvels of nature, that great, silent northern sky dance and think, "How marvelous are thy ways, Oh Lord!" I might have even found myself humming a hymn or two...you know the ones, "For the Beauty of the Earth", and one of my favorites, "I sing the Mighty Power of God." In the past. But no more. Because I'm scared.
Yes, that's right, friggin' scairt out of my wig. I have Modern Scientism to thank for that, thank you Modern Scientismists. If you had a plug nickel's worth of common sense, you'd be out of your heads with worry, followed by panic, and winding up doing "something, anything!" So long as you keep your tax dollars flowing to all the Modern Scientism Departments at all the colleges, who will dutifully report that if you aren't to blame for the next disaster, well, then, Mr. Sun is!
I heard a quote, the man who said it first escapes my memory, but the quote went like this:
"An atheist is a man who digs holes inwhich to hide from the machines he has made."
Now, if God wanted to shock and awe this planet into a new ice age, or is it a 4 degree warming disaster, I can't keep 'em straight anymore, he has a myriad of ways to do it. But the Aurora Borealis? C'mon!
On a more comforting note, Sean Gleeson (whose brother Jim won the 2007 Bulwer-Lytton Bad Fiction contest), puts Earth Day in proper perspective.
