In a sonorous voice full of intelligence, the commentator on TV tells us that 6 billion years ago, humans evolved from apes. Mbu we have to believe all those stories about the big bang and primordial soup. We are told to go back to that Sinai and go round it again for the umpteenth time, trying to find the Missing Link.
So there is supposed to have been a giant leap from apehood to humanhood. The scientists insist that what Aunt Cynthia taught in Sunday School was all dogs’ bollocks. That there is no way the creation story could have happened because they don’t understand how that could have happened. Ha! So we all should throw out our math teachers because they are writing formulae we don’t click on the board!
The evolutionists seem to have got new money to go out there and do some more research. Suddenly it is open season on everything traditional. And what’s more, Dan Brown, Dr. Barbara Thiering (the computer dictionary called her Thieving) and all those very clever people are shouting again. I’ve read some of their works and I’ve been impressed, I must say.
There is something gripping about the voice of the guy who always voices over nature flicks, no? There can not be a chance that this guy is telling us lies. They always have the facts or rather, millions of gobbledygook trivia thrown together in a mosaic and eventually, we are eating out of their hand. The songs about the Discovery Channel are not many for nothing.
When the inquisitive mind, awakened by such fascinating info asks why humans were living at the same time as the dinosaurs (footprints of man together with those of some T-Rex, probably the relationship was hunter and hunted, T-Rex and dinner…), there are raised voices and accusations of being high on the Opium of the Masses.
Meanwhile, the brainies go into the Congo and poke around, fool around and mess with the Cradle of Life. They are trying to disprove things that have been said long before by a power that’s bigger than them. But maybe that’s what humans are supposed to do; hit their heads upon the wall until they are blue and black. Okay, for black people, blue and black sounds a little bit out there but…
