In the Land of Fish Stickers

So, on my bass guitar case, a "Darwin Fish" is prominently displayed. I also have a Darwin Fish holding a wrench who's name is "Evolve." My fish symbols live there, as I walk through the valley of the shadow of "Truth Fish" happily devouring their little Darwin fish predecessors. Yes, it is a happy place, this Island City, where debate rages even on the bumpers of the minivans and Mercedes.

Then, today, I was searching for a 'fish concept car' with which to harrass my brother with in the comments section of another post, and this comes up on Google.

A Darwin Fish, being eaten by a Truth Fish, being eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. All in the same image. I thought two things when I saw this. 1) I must have one & 2) where do we go from here?

I can see the next one now, Darwin Fish being eaten by Truth Fish being eaten by T-Rex being peed on by Calvin!

Can we stop with the fish already? It's not like the two groups are even arguing the same point. One groups is arguing that evolution happens. The other is arguing that God created the universe accroding to the writings of Genesis. This is like one side arguing that Coke is better than Pepsi while the other side argues that the first side is crazy because pancakes are so much better than waffles. What does one have to do with the other? Absolutely nothing.

The theory of evolution merely states that species can change over time and perhaps result in new species over long periods of time. I missed the part where that means God didn't create the universe or even where it means that God didn't create the universe exactly as described in Genesis with 24 hour days and everything.

[T]he latest attack on the Ichthus fish doesn’t worry Bob Woodward, the creator of the Truth fish. In a recent press release, he [...] pointed out a fatal flaw in the Darwinists’ decision to include a dinosaur in their latest offering: extinction. “The last Tyrannosaurus Rex fell down dead over 60 million years ago.

Uh, Bob, according to Biblical scholars, the Earth is only about 6,000 years old. Are you saying it might be older than that?

Has that ever stopped us before? Americans are an argumentative people.

The last Tyrannosaurus Rex fell down dead over 60 million years ago.

Ideological inconsistency is so much fun.

You're wrong, Pat. Waffles are better, especially when pecans are involved.

And of course by "the writings of Genesis" I do mean the Biblical book though it would certainly be interesting to see how Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, and company weigh in on the matter.

Thanks for reading, everyone. I'm glad you picked up on the logical inconsistency written into the piece.

Best wishes to all!
