Earth Day 2012: Go Green or Go Home

Guess I'll just go home.

There is something about America's favorite new Pagan religion and its high holy day (Earth Day) that just rubs me the wrong way.  Guess it has to do with the fact that it is a religion, and yet its disciples deny that fact.  Here's a fun fact: the first Earth Day was heavily intertwined with the whole movement for zero population growth due to overcrowding.   You know, brought to you by those people who have never been anywhere but New York City, LA or Tokyo.  Obviously if they had ever driven across Nebraska, Wyoming or Montana, they would have seen how ridiculous that particular idea was.  Of course the God of the Bible has quite a different view.  He instructs us to be fruitful and multiply.  That is but one small point of contrast.

Anyway, in honor of Earth Day, I prepared a short video for your viewing pleasure. 

Disclaimer: Tires were most definitely harmed in the making of this video.  Enough high octane LEADED gas was used to have powered a Prius for a month.  Unfortunately no oil was burned, but only because the old Stude doesn't burn oil.  The valve on the nitrous oxide tank was also left in the closed position because that would have just been overkill - even for me.

If you find the tone of this post to be a bit mocking of the greenies, you are right.  My God, Jehovah, is the creator of the god of the greenies ("mother" earth).  My God is infinite in power.  That the neutralizing of the result of  burning fossil fuels is well within his power is such an understatement as to be laughable.  To think that mere humans can significantly effect the earth's climate is supremely egotistical.  It is akin to believing you can dilute the salt water of the ocean by carrying cups of fresh water from the lakes. 

As to the taunting part ...think Elijah and the prophets of Baal.  (I really love that story! )
