Puff the Darwin Dragon

In honor of Peter, Paul and Mary and whoever and whatever Jackie Paper is or was.... 



Another failed hypothesis goes up in smoke, hahahaha~~~

Puff the Darwin Dragon lived by the sea
In the unobservable time and space they find necessary
A big bad bolt of lightning hit that rascal Puff
and turned him into DNA and all that coding stuff

Another bolt hit smack into a primordial sea
and made the first cells Puff would need to first begin to be
An earthquake formed the fishies, earthquakes made the bugs
then volcanoes made dinosaurs and hurricanes formed birds

Then one day a tornado grabbed a reptilian thing
and with its twisting vortex it expanded that that thing's brain
A mudslide gave it hair and we had both sloth and bear
Then a lemur's brain got caught in the rain and made him a human

Oh normal men need science and facts and forms employ
But fairy tales and ancestral snails are all just Darwin toys
Little Richie Dawkins loved that rascal Puff
But when he dies the Word implies that God will call his bluff

(everybody sing!)


OH, Puff the Darwin Dragon lived by the sea
In the unobservable time and space they find necessary
A big bolt of lightning hit that rascal Puff
and turned him into DNA and all that coding stuff

Neither of these are Kraftwerk...

Interesting choice of songs, Radar. I suppose it does make sense, though, that a mid-life convert to fundamentalist Christianity is also a fan of manic-depressive folk music.

PPM is manic-depressive? Maybe you would say that at times about Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin or Jefferson Airplane. Come to think of it, you could put George Harrison and Eric Clapton and Patti Boyd in a room with the entire Fleetwood Mac band and have a group therapy session on drugs, co-dependency and manic-depressive behavior. PPM were your standard folk singing Pete Seegerites.

You are probably not aware that I was a singer back in the day and a big fan of hard rock music and prog rock. But for some reason when I wrote songs I was more of a bluesy rock writer ala Led Zeppelin or Gentle Giant or Spencer Davis Group or even Country-tinged Neil Young stuff. I think I still have all the lyrics to three or four Neil Young albums memorized. Used to sing albums straight through while I was mowing our massive yard back in the day. Took two hours to mow so that was at least three albums every time.

Chuckle.

You do know that both the time and space can be observed, right? And that this is a major problem for the YEC scenario? Surely we've been over this.

Hence the amazing just-so story of God making rays of light (and other radiation) in mid-travel, before the objects that caused them ever existed... if they actually do exist, since they don't have to. The whole thing could be a fictitious light show by the dear Creator to impress you with a big load of nothing.

Now where would Occam's Razor fall on that?

1. Objects exist and give off light and other radiation.

2. Said radiation arrives and is perceived on Earth.

or

1. God creates a fictitious history of the universe, then codes it all into light rays and other radiation, calculating exactly how it would be perceived on Earth, then puts those rays into space.

2. God only then creates the objects implied by the light and other radiation. (This step is optional.)

3. Said radiation arrives and is perceived on Earth, with humans believing that the rays, created to fake the existence of a fictitious universe, actually do indicate a humongous universe.

Hm.
