Modernman to Caveman Jerry (Falwell, let's say)

MM: Why does the apple fall from the tree?

CJ: Because the great Bootooo in the sky makes it fall...

MM: Hmm, actually, I've investigated the problem a bit and found out that masses behave as if they attracted each other. But I wonder why...

CJ: Easy: because the great Bootoo in the sky makes masses attract each other...

MM: Oh but wait! after further investigation I found that masses behave like that because they seem to curve space-time... But I wonder why...

CJ: Easy: because (INTERRUPTED)

MM: Ok, ok, I get it...

At any point in the causal chain, it is always possible to invoke a supernatural cause. Science's current view is that there was a Big Bang, and it currently has no clear explanation as to how it came to be. But guess what: Caveman Jerry has an explanation.



PS: I've always wanted to create an animation about this...Even a website about Caveman Jerry' primitive ideas. Can anybody help?

Sometimes, I think we're witnessing the birth of a new species: homo supertitionis... Problem is, they seem to be winning the natural selection contest.

There is only one way to react to conservative Americans: go for the jugular vein and threaten their economy. Wouldn't it be nice if a large pharmaceutical company suddenly posted on their website: 'Sorry, we cannot hire graduates from the following state: Louisiana Texas..'.

Ok ok, I'm fantasizing…

The opening of this museum is excellent news for the rest of the civilised world. After all, if Americans insist on making sure that their children are taught religious dogma instead of science, there is a potentially huge economic advantage for us.

We'll be laughing all the way to the patent office!
