Second voyage of "The Beagle"

















SOMEWHERE DWELT THE DESIGNER

(to the tune of "Over The Rainbow")

Somewhere dwelt The Designer, I’ve heard so
Crafting each sep’rate species six thousand years ago.
Somewhere, fossils were planted, please believe
And the scheme The Designer schemed, really did deceive.

Someday The Beagle will sail far to where the beaks of finches are evolving.
A ship for science, not the Ark, where data overcome the dark,
With myths dis-sol-ving.

Somewhere schemes the Believer, in a pew
“Sci-ent-ific Creation!” , and coins a lie brand new.
If separated finches grew an adaptation, just say it’s not true.

Madam, in Eden I'm Adam.


Even it felt left in, Eve.


Eve damned Eden. Mad Eve !

Red dates? Apple? - Help, Pa! Set adder !

Ned rages, "Reverse Garden."


Now, Eve we're here. We've won.

Spin?  T. rex exert nips.

We panic in a pew. 

So! Gap, a lag - Galapagos.

Ev, love did evolve.

Garden? mad as a damned rag.

Eh, cat! Tacit song at agnostic attaché.

Live hops abandon! Nod, nab asp! Oh evil! 




Adage of the week:  (Egad! an adage!) 


Struts truss; stirrups thrust; purists thirst; truth persists.   GioLio
