Everyone needs a little warm humor in the depths of the current arctic vortex that has been freezing our country. While surfing around the worldwide web last night, my eyes encountered the humorous graphic item shown below. I have no idea who created this graphic item, but it illustrates (in Pandy’s famous “one swell thoop”) just about everything the Flee from Christian Fundamentalism blog has ever said about President Donald J. Trump and his so-called political base. This base consists primarily of Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals in the American South and the Midwest (including the High Plains states).
My human paleontology knowledge is about 43 years out of a date, but I believe the last skull in the above graphic item is a computer-based total reconstruction of an Australopithecus afarensis cranium, which includes the famous ancient hominid skeletal remains known as Lucy. You may read about this group of australopithecines by clicking on the following safe link:
How many of you have seen the movie Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman? It is only a very few years old, and it is one of the best science fiction movies ever made. If you can get past all the bad language and gratuitous violence, the story line is unique, amazing, and very well done.
Scarlett plays the part of a young woman named Lucy who gradually takes on powers worthy of a Marvel Comics character. In this movie, Lucy actually meets the ancient paleontological Lucy in a well-crafted scene that hearkens back to one of the classic images Michelangelo painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
I highly recommend this movie to any mature and intelligent science fiction lover who is over 18 years of age and able to withstand the incessant bad language and horrid violence that occurs throughout this motion picture. This story is one truly extraordinary trip. If you are a Christian, it may reflect the ultimate evolutionary destiny God has in mind for all of his people one day—only his people will be given excellent and highly sensitive personal consciences to appropriately and lovingly moderate all of their super powers.
You may watch the original trailer for this movie by clicking the following safe link, and I can guarantee you one thing. Trump and his followers should pray night and day that they never try to shoot this Lucy in Times Square:
