Christopher Hitchens, On Intelligent Design, p. 77
Is it really true that the whole world is dumber than a bus load of Conservatives? The oracle of Ottawa is really getting miffed at all the hub-bub building about this 2012 end of the world crap! Would you believe that the article about it now ranks 649th out of the nearly four million articles in Wikipedia? Would you believe that that article has been hit over one million times in the last thirty days? No?
|You buy this crap?|
Would you believe that the Oracle of Ottawa saw a very well heeled and seemingly rational and well educated man literally close all his bank accounts and announce to the teller that he was leaving North America to hide out in his ancestral Austria? Well that dear reader is true! I witnessed this act of insanity at my very own bank branch in Ottawa Ontario, just before Christmas last! I was dum-founded as was the teller, who could hardly keep the straight face...
|Not a wheel to be found...|
Argument 1: If the prophetic power of the Mayan calendar is or was so shit hot, how come they didn't predict there own demise? In turn why would you consider their prediction about our civilization?
Argument 2: If the Mayan culture and civilization was so damn awesome, how was it that it was kicked over by less then two dozen rag ass pirates from of all places Spain!??
Argument 3: Why would you believe any prediction from a "civilization" that existed for over two thousand years and never got around to figuring out or even come close to inventing the wheel? How much advice do you take from people that run every where? Yeah, not too much....
So for all you panicking, sorry, dumb as fuck wallies, I hope that this will at least allow you to sleep tonight....
The nice man from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory back up the Oracle of Ottawa with even more rational information that you paid for with your tax dollars, that were all in all very well spent... No go to bed you idiot!!
