Blasphemous Blogging: The Blog of Edwin Kagin

Blasphemy is the crime of making fun of ridiculous beliefs others hold sacred. This blog is about satire, truth, inquiry, and critical thinking. It is about enjoying life before death. It is about how some try to control many through their notions about a make believe supernatural world and imaginary rewards and punishments after death. This blog says that blasphemy is a good thing, a healthy thing, and a good antidote to harmful superstition. This blog is about freedom. Edwin.

Snowflake Children

Battlefield Notes
American Religious Civil War (ARCW)

In a fairly recent and most creative abdication of reason, certain fundangelicals have started encouraging "adoption" of frozen embryos. Yeah, no kidding.

Just think of the possibilities. Validation of fetal personhood. Birth without sex. The greatest thing to happen for the fundangelical world view since AIDS.

Know what they call these icy units? They call them "Snowflake Children" that's what. You can prove this to your satisfaction by creative use of Google.

Here is an Edwinian contribution to this effort.

The following can be sung to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot."

I'm a Little Snowflake Child

I 'm a little sinless snowflake child
A godly girl can have me without being wild;
Please be my mommy and make me smile
Virgin birth a darling little snowflake child.

Creator God of Everything, I hope Thee wilt not decline
To answer me my questionings of Intelligent Design.

I know that every living thing came from Thy mighty mind
That Thou created perfectly every life form that we find.

Some pious people tell me they have, through Thee, resolved
That Eden spawned all living things and that life has not evolved.

That each kind of Thy created works Thou did to finest form refine,
And human perfection clearly shows the intelligence of Thy design.

Creator God, please do explain the truths of I.D. to me
And why some flaw-free eyes Thou made need glass to clearly see.

Tell me God of Everything, for I know Thou cannot lie,
Why every perfect thing Thou made must one day age and die.

And why are joints, and backs, and bones subject to ruin and pain?
Why must heads ache, and kidneys leak, and blood vessels burst from strain?

Why do we jettison out our waste so near the port of birth?
Why should any of Thy organs quit? Were we designed just for Thy mirth?

Barely can we walk upright; most teeth will rot or fail.
And what does our appendix do? Did we once have a tail?

Why is our trachea, through which we breathe air, located to nearly meet
Our esophagus, so we sometimes inhale good things we try to eat?

Why do some bodies attack themselves, when from disease we might be free?
Tell me truly, God of Truth, were all our afflictions made by Thee?

Why does Intelligent Design make so many people fat
Why have we not the grace or ease designed into the cat?

I have other questions Deity, and I really don’t know how
A moment ago I knew them, but cannot recall them now.

Edwin Kagin.
